Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 2:26

_ _ And — implying the close connection of the promise to the conqueror that follows, with the preceding exhortation, Revelation 2:25.

_ _ and keepethGreek, “and he that keepeth.” Compare the same word in the passage already alluded to by the Lord, Acts 15:28, Acts 15:29, end.

_ _ my works — in contrast to “her (English Version, ‘their’) works” (Revelation 2:22). The works which I command and which are the fruit of My Spirit.

_ _ unto the end — (Matthew 24:13). The image is perhaps from the race, wherein it is not enough to enter the lists, but the runner must persevere to the end.

_ _ give powerGreek, “authority.”

_ _ over the nations — at Christ’s coming the saints shall possess the kingdom “under the whole heaven”; therefore over this earth; compare Luke 19:17, “have thou authority [the same word as here] over ten cities.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 2:18-29.

By works — Those which I have commanded. To him will I give power over the nations — That is, I will give him to share with me in that glorious victory which the Father hath promised me over all the nations who as yet resist me, Psalms 2:8-9.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 2:26

(20) And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give (21) power over the nations:

(20) The conclusion, in which Christ assures to his servants the communion of his kingdom and glory, in this verse, and that following: and commands a holy attention in the last verse (Revelation 2:29).

(21) That is, I will make him a king, by communion with me, and my fellow heir, as it is promised; (Matthew 19:28, Matthew 25:34) (Romans 8:17; 1 Corinthians 6:3; Ephesians 2:6; 2 Timothy 2:12).
