Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 22:5

_ _ there — so Andreas. But A, B, Vulgate, and Syriac read, “(there shall be no night) any longer”; Greek,eti,” for “ekei.”

_ _ they need — A, Vulgate, and Coptic read the future, “they shall not have need.” B reads, “(and there shall be) no need.”

_ _ candleGreek, “lamp.” A, Vulgate, Syriac, and Coptic insert “light (of a candle, or lamp).” B Omits it.

_ _ of the sun — so A. But B omits it.

_ _ giveth ... light — “illumines.” So Vulgate and Syriac. But A reads, “shall give light.”

_ _ them — so B and Andreas. But A reads, “upon them.”

_ _ reign — with a glory probably transcending that of their reign in heaven with Christ over the millennial nations in the flesh described in Revelation 20:4, Revelation 20:6; that reign was but for a limited time, “a thousand years”; this final reign is “unto the ages of the ages.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 22:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 22:5

And they shall reign for ever and ever — What encouragement is this to the patience and faithfulness of the saints, that, whatever their sufferings are, they will work out for them "an eternal weight of glory!" Thus ends the doctrine of this Revelation, in the everlasting happiness of all the faithful. The mysterious ways of Providence are cleared up, and all things issue in an eternal Sabbath, an everlasting state of perfect peace and happiness, reserved for all who endure to the end.
