Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:6

_ _ It is done — the same Greek as in Revelation 16:17. “It is come to pass.” So Vulgate reads with English Version. But A reads, “They (‘these words,Revelation 21:5) are come to pass.” All is as sure as if it actually had been fulfilled for it rests on the word of the unchanging God. When the consummation shall be, God shall rejoice over the work of His own hands, as at the completion of the first creation God saw everything that He had made, and behold it was very good (Genesis 1:31).

_ _ Alpha ... OmegaGreek in A and B, “the Alpha ... the Omega” (Revelation 1:18).

_ _ give unto ... athirst ... water of life — (Revelation 22:17; Isaiah 12:3; Isaiah 55:1; John 4:13, John 4:14; John 7:37, John 7:38). This is added lest any should despair of attaining to this exceeding weight of glory. In our present state we may drink of the stream, then we shall drink at the Fountain.

_ _ freelyGreek, “gratuitously”: the same Greek as is translated, “(They hated Me) without a cause,” John 15:25. As gratuitous as was man’s hatred of God, so gratuitous is God’s love to man: there was every cause in Christ why man should love Him, yet man hated Him; there was every cause in man why (humanly speaking) God should have hated man, yet God loved man: the very reverse of what might be expected took place in both cases. Even in heaven our drinking at the Fountain shall be God’s gratuitous gift.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 21:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:6

And he — That sat upon the throne. Said to me, It is done — All that the prophets had spoken; all that was spoken, Revelation 4:1. We read this expression twice in this prophecy: first, Revelation 16:17, at the fulfilling of the wrath of God; and here, at the making all things new. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end — The latter explains the former: the Everlasting. I will give to him that thirsteth — The Lamb saith the same, Revelation 22:17.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 21:6

And he said unto me, (5) It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

(5) The description of the Church is in three parts, by the abolishing of old things, by the being of present things in God, that is, of things eternal: and by the giving of all good things with the godly. If so be they shall contend manfully; (Revelation 21:7). But the reprobate are excluded from there; (Revelation 21:8).
