Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 21:7

_ _ He that overcometh — another aspect of the believer’s life: a conflict with sin, Satan, and the world is needed. Thirsting for salvation is the first beginning of, and continues for ever (in the sense of an appetite and relish for divine joys) a characteristic of the believer. In a different sense, the believer “shall never thirst.”

_ _ inherit all things — A, B, Vulgate, and Cyprian read, “these things,” namely, the blessings described in this whole passage. With “all things,” compare 1 Corinthians 3:21-23.

_ _ I will be his GodGreek, “I will be to him a God,” that is, all that is implied of blessing in the name “God.”

_ _ he shall be my son — “He” is emphatic: He in particular and in a peculiar sense, above others: Greek, “shall be to me a son,” in fullest realization of the promise made in type to Solomon, son of David, and antitypically to the divine Son of David.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 21:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 21:7

He that overcometh — Which is more than, "he that thirsteth." Shall inherit these things — Which I have made new. I will be his God, and he shall be my son — Both in the Hebrew and Greek language, in which the scriptures were written, what we translate shall and will are one and the same word. The only difference consists in an English translation, or in the want of knowledge in him that interprets what he does not understand.
