Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:5

_ _ satGreek, “sitteth.”

_ _ all things new — not recent, but changed from the old (Greek,kaina,” not “nea”). An earnest of this regeneration and transfiguration of nature is given already in the regenerate soul.

_ _ unto me — so Coptic and Andreas. But A, B, Vulgate, and Syriac omit.

_ _ true and faithful — so Andreas. But A, B, Vulgate, Syriac, and Coptic transpose, “faithful and true” (literally, “genuine”).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 21:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:5

And he that sat upon the throne said — Not to St. John only. From the first mention of "him that sat upon the throne," Revelation 4:2, this is the first speech which is expressly ascribed to him. And he — The angel. Saith to me Write — As follows. These sayings are faithful and true — This includes all that went before. The apostle seems again to have ceased writing, being overcome with ecstasy at the voice of him that spake.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 21:5

(4) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

(4) In the speech of God himself describing the Church, is first an introduction, or entrance. Then follows a magnificent description of the Church, by the present and future good things of the same, in three verses following (Revelation 21:6-8). In the introduction God challenges to himself the restoring of all the creatures, (Revelation 21:1) and witnesses the calling of John to the writing of these things, in this verse.
