REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE - Chapter 22 - Verse 15

Verse 15. For without are dogs. The wicked, the depraved, the vile: for of such characters the dogs, an unclean animal among the Jews, was regarded as a symbol, De 23:18. On the meaning of the expression, see Barnes on "Php 3:2".

The word "without" means that they would not be admitted into the heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, Re 21:8, 27.

 

And sorcerers, etc. All these characters are specified in Re 21:8, as excluded from heaven. See Barnes on "Re 21:8".

The only change is, that those who "love and make a lie" are added to the list; that is, who delight in lies, or that which is false.

{g} "without" Re 21:8,27 {h} "dogs" Php 3:2 {i} "the root" Re 5:5
