Revelation 22:12-15

Context

22:12 (Look! I am coming soon,

and my reward is with me to pay 1  each one according to what he has done!

22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega,

the first and the last,

the beginning and the end!) 2 

22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes so they can have access 3  to the tree of life and can enter into the city by the gates. 22:15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers 4  and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood! 5 

1 tn The Greek term may be translated either “pay” or “pay back” and has something of a double meaning here. However, because of the mention of “wages” (“reward,” another wordplay with two meanings) in the previous clause, the translation “pay” for ἀποδοῦναι (apodounai) was used here.

2 sn These lines are parenthetical, forming an aside to the narrative. The speaker here is the Lord Jesus Christ himself rather than the narrator.

3 tn Grk “so that there will be to them authority over the tree of life.”

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

5 tn Or “lying,” “deceit.”
