Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 22:6-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 22:15

Without are dogs — The sentence in the original is abrupt, as expressing abhorrence. The gates are ever open; but not for dogs; fierce and rapacious men.

that dogs might be related to those 3

so what cannot enter are past sinful thoughts of the type of things listed in the verse...
these type of things are what are purged from souls to be redeemed and reenter the kingdom
