Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 7:15

_ _ Therefore — because they are so washed white; for without it they could never have entered God’s holy heaven; Revelation 22:14, “Blessed are those who wash their robes (the oldest manuscripts reading), that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city”; Revelation 21:27; Ephesians 5:26, Ephesians 5:27.

_ _ beforeGreek, “in the presence of.” Matthew 5:8; 1 Corinthians 13:12, “face to face.”

_ _ throne ... temple — These are connected because we can approach the heavenly King only through priestly mediation; therefore, Christ is at once King and Priest on His throne.

_ _ day and night — that is, perpetually; as those approved of as priests by the Sanhedrim were clothed in white, and kept by turns a perpetual watch in the temple at Jerusalem; compare as to the singers, 1 Chronicles 9:33, “day and night”; Psalms 134:1. Strictly “there is no night” in the heavenly sanctuary (Revelation 22:5).

_ _ in his temple — in what is the heavenly analogue to His temple on earth, for strictly there is “no temple therein” (Revelation 21:22), “God and the Lamb are the temple” filling the whole, so that there is no distinction of sacred and secular places; the city is the temple, and the temple the city. Compare Revelation 4:8, “the four living creatures rest not day and night, saying, Holy,” etc.

_ _ shall dwell among them — rather (Greek,scenosei ep' autous”), “shall be the tabernacle over them” (compare Revelation 21:3; Leviticus 26:11, especially Isaiah 4:5, Isaiah 4:6; Isaiah 8:14; Isaiah 25:4; Ezekiel 37:27). His dwelling among them is to be understood as a secondary truth, besides what is expressed, namely, His being their covert. When once He tabernacled among us as the Word made flesh, He was in great lowliness; then He shall be in great glory.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 7:13-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 7:15

Therefore — Because they came out of great affliction, and have washed their robes in his blood. Are they before the throne — It seems, even nearer than the angels. And serve him day and night — Speaking after the manner of men; that is, continually. In his temple — Which is in heaven. And he shall have his tent over them — Shall spread his glory over them as a covering.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
