Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 22:14

_ _ do his commandments — so B, Syriac, Coptic, and Cyprian. But A, Aleph, and Vulgate read, “(Blessed are they that) wash their robes,” namely, in the blood of the Lamb (compare Revelation 7:14). This reading takes away the pretext for the notion of salvation by works. But even English Version reading is quite compatible with salvation by grace; for God’s first and grand Gospel “commandment” is to believe on Jesus. Thus our “right” to (Greek, “privilege” or “lawful authority over”) the tree of life is due not to our doings, but to what He has done for us. The right, or privilege, is founded, not on our merits, but on God’s grace.

_ _ throughGreek,by the gates.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 22:6-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 22:14

Happy are they that do his commandments — His, who saith, I come — He speaks of himself. That they may have right — Through his gracious covenant. To the tree of life — To all the blessings signified by it. When Adam broke his commandment, he was driven from the tree of life. They who keep his commandments" shall eat thereof.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
