REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE - Chapter 21 - Verse 24

Verse 24. And the nations of them which are saved. All the nations that are saved; or all the saved considered as nations. This imagery is doubtless derived from that in Isaiah, particularly Isa 60:3-9. See Barnes on "Isa 60:3, seq.

Shall walk in the light of it. Shall enjoy its splendour, and be continually in its light.

And the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. All that they consider as constituting their glory, treasures, crowns, sceptres, robes. The idea is, that all these will be devoted to God in the future days of the church in its glory, and will be, as it were, brought and laid down at the feet of the Saviour in heaven. The language is derived, doubtless, from the description in Isa 60:3-14. Compare Isa 49:23.

{c} "nations" Isa 60:3-11; 66:10-12 {d} "kings" Ps 72:11
