Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 3:10

_ _ patience — “endurance.” “The word of My endurance” is My Gospel word, which teaches patient endurance in expectation of my coming (Revelation 1:9). My endurance is the endurance which I require, and which I practice. Christ Himself now endures, patiently waiting until the usurper be cast out, and all “His enemies be made His footstool.” So, too, His Church, for the joy before her of sharing His coming kingdom, endures patiently. Hence, in Revelation 3:11, follows, “Behold, I come quickly.”

_ _ I also — The reward is in kind: “because thou didst keep,” etc. “I also (on My side) will keep thee,” etc.

_ _ fromGreek, “(so as to deliver thee) out of,” not to exempt from temptation.

_ _ the hour of temptation — the appointed season of affliction and temptation (so in Deuteronomy 4:34 the plagues are called “the temptations of Egypt”), literally, “the temptation”: the sore temptation which is coming on: the time of great tribulation before Christ’s second coming.

_ _ to try them that dwell upon the earth — those who are of earth, earthy (Revelation 8:13). “Dwell” implies that their home is earth, not heaven. All mankind, except the elect (Revelation 13:8, Revelation 13:14). The temptation brings out the fidelity of those kept by Christ and hardens the unbelieving reprobates (Revelation 9:20, Revelation 9:21; Revelation 16:11, Revelation 16:21). The particular persecutions which befell Philadelphia shortly after, were the earnest of the great last tribulation before Christ’s coming, to which the Church’s attention in all ages is directed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 3:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 3:10

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience — The word of Christ is indeed a word of patience. I also will keep thee — O happy exemption from that spreading calamity! From the hour of temptation — So that thou shalt not enter into temptation; but it shall pass over thee. The hour denotes the short time of its continuance; that is, at any one place. At every one it was very sharp, though short; wherein the great tempter was not idle, Revelation 2:10. Which hour shall come upon the whole earth — The whole Roman empire. It went over the Christians, and over the Jews and heathens; though in a very different manner. This was the time of the persecution under the seemingly virtuous emperor Trajan. The two preceding persecutions were under those monsters, Nero and Domitian; but Trajan was so admired for his goodness, and his persecution was of such a nature, that it was a temptation indeed, and did throughly try them that dwelt upon the earth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 3:10

Because thou hast (g) kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

(g) Because you have been patient and constant, as I would have my servants be.
