Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:24

_ _ of them which are saved ... in — A, B, Vulgate, Coptic, and Andreas read “(the nations shall walk) by means of her light”: omitting “of them which are saved.” Her brightness shall supply them with light.

_ _ the kings of the earth — who once had regard only to their glory, having been converted, now in the new Jerusalem do bring their glory into it, to lay it down at the feet of their God and Lord.

_ _ and honour — so B, Vulgate, and Syriac. But A omits the clause.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 21:9-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:24

And the nations — The whole verse is taken from Isaiah 60:3. Shall walk by the light thereof — Which throws itself outward from the city far and near. And the kings of the earth — Those of them who have a part there. Bring their glory into it — Not their old glory, which is now abolished; but such as becomes the new earth, and receives an immense addition by their entrance into the city.
