Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 7:17

_ _ in the midst of the throne — that is, in the middle point in front of the throne (Revelation 5:6).

_ _ feedGreek, “tend as a shepherd.”

_ _ living fountains of water — A, B, Vulgate, and Cyprian read, (eternal) “life’s fountains of waters.” “Living” is not supported by the old authorities.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 7:13-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 7:17

For the Lamb will feed them — With eternal peace and joy; so that they shall hunger no more. And will lead them to living fountains of water — The comforts of the Holy Ghost; so that they shall thirst no more. Neither shall they suffer or grieve any more; for God "will wipe away all tears from their eyes."
