Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 2:21

_ _ spaceGreek, “time.”

_ _ of her fornication ... she repented not — The three oldest manuscripts read, “and she willeth not to repent of (literally, ‘out of,’ that is, so as to come out of) her fornication.” Here there is a transition from literal to spiritual fornication, as appears from Revelation 2:22. The idea arose from Jehovah’s covenant relation to the Old Testament Church being regarded as a marriage, any transgression against which was, therefore, harlotry, fornication, or adultery.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 2:18-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 2:21

And I gave her time to repent — So great is the power of Christ! But she will not repent — So, though repentance is the gift of God, man may refuse it; God will not compel.
