Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:27

_ _ anything that defilethGreek,koinoun.” A and B read [koinon,] “anything unclean.

_ _ in the Lamb’s book of life — (See on Revelation 20:12; see on Revelation 20:15). As all the filth of the old Jerusalem was carried outside the walls and burnt there, so nothing defiled shall enter the heavenly city, but be burnt outside (compare Revelation 22:15). It is striking that the apostle of love, who shows us the glories of the heavenly city, is he also who speaks most plainly of the terrors of hell. On Revelation 21:26, Revelation 21:27, Alford writes a Note, rash in speculation, about the heathen nations, above what is written, and not at all required by the sacred text: compare Note, see on Revelation 21:26.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 21:9-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:27

Common — That is. unholy. But those who are written in the Lamb's book of life — True, holy, persevering believers. This blessedness is enjoyed by those only; and, as such, they are registered among them who are to inherit eternal life.
