Revelation 21:27

Context
21:27 but 1  nothing ritually unclean 2  will ever enter into it, nor anyone who does what is detestable 3  or practices falsehood, 4  but only those whose names 5  are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Revelation 22:15

Context
22:15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers 6  and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood! 7 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

2 tn Here BDAG 552 s.v. κοινός 2 states, “pert. to being of little value because of being common, common, ordinary, profane…b. specifically, of that which is ceremonially impure: Rv 21:27.”

3 tn Or “what is abhorrent”; Grk “who practices abominations.”

4 tn Grk “practicing abomination or falsehood.” Because of the way βδέλυγμα (bdelugma) has been translated (“does what is detestable”) it was necessary to repeat the idea from the participle ποιῶν (poiwn, “practices”) before the term “falsehood.” On this term, BDAG 1097 s.v. ψεῦδος states, “ποιεῖν ψεῦδος practice (the things that go with) falsehood Rv 21:27; 22:15.” Cf. Rev 3:9.

5 tn Grk “those who are written”; the word “names” is implied.

6 tn On the term φάρμακοι (farmakoi) see L&N 53.101.

7 tn Or “lying,” “deceit.”
