Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 2:22

_ _ Behold — calling attention to her awful doom to come.

_ _ I willGreek present, “I cast her.”

_ _ a bed — The place of her sin shall be the place of her punishment. The bed of her sin shall be her bed of sickness and anguish. Perhaps a pestilence was about to be sent. Or the bed of the grave, and of the hell beyond, where the worm dieth not.

_ _ them that commit adultery with her — spiritually; including both the eating of idol-meats and fornication. “With her,” in the Greek, implies participation with her in her adulteries, namely, by suffering her (Revelation 2:20), or letting her alone, and so virtually encouraging her. Her punishment is distinct from theirs; she is to be cast into a bed, and her children to be killed; while those who make themselves partakers of her sin by tolerating her, are to be cast into great tribulation.

_ _ except they repentGreek aorist, “repent” at once; shall have repented by the time limited in My purpose.

_ _ their deeds — Two of the oldest manuscripts and most ancient versions read “her.” Thus, God’s true servants, who by connivance, are incurring the guilt of her deeds, are distinguished from her. One oldest manuscript, Andreas, and Cyprian, support “their.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 2:18-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 2:22

I will cast her into a bed — into great affliction — and them that commit either carnal or spiritual adultery with her, unless they repent — She had her time before. Of her works — Those to which she had enticed their and which she had committed with them.

It is observable, the angel of the church at Thyatira was only blamed for suffering her. This fault ceased when God took vengeance on her. Therefore he is not expressly exhorted to repent, though it is implied.
