Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:3

_ _ out of heaven — so Andreas. But A and Vulgate read, “out of the throne.”

_ _ the tabernacle — alluding to the tabernacle of God in the wilderness (wherein many signs of His presence were given): of which this is the antitype, having previously been in heaven: Revelation 11:19; Revelation 15:5, “the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven”; also Revelation 13:6. Compare the contrast in Hebrews 9:23, Hebrews 9:14, between “the patterns” and “the heavenly things themselves,” between “the figures” and “the true.” The earnest of the true and heavenly tabernacle was afforded in the Jerusalem temple described in Ezekiel 40:1-42:20, as about to be, namely, during the millennium.

_ _ dwell with them — literally, “tabernacle with them”; the same Greek word as is used of the divine Son “tabernacling among us.” Then He was in the weakness of the flesh: but at the new creation of heaven and earth He shall tabernacle among us in the glory of His manifested Godhead (Revelation 22:4).

_ _ they — in Greek emphatic, “they” (in particular).

_ _ his peopleGreek, “His peoples”: “the nations of the saved” being all peculiarly His, as Israel was designed to be. So A reads. But B, Vulgate, Syriac, and Coptic read, “His people”: singular.

_ _ God himself ... with them — realizing fully His name Immanuel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:3

They shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God — So shall the covenant between God and his people be executed in the most glorious manner.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 21:3

(3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God.

(3) The Church is described by the speech, first of an angel, in two verses, then by God himself, in four verses. The angel's speech describes the glory of the Church, by the most intimate communion with God, by giving of all manner of good things according to the covenant, in this verse: and by removing or putting away of all evil things, in the verse following (Revelation 21:4).
