Revelation 3:20-21

3:20 Listen! 1  I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come into his home 2  and share a meal with him, and he with me. 3:21 I will grant the one 3  who conquers 4  permission 5  to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered 6  and sat down with my Father on his throne.

1 tn Grk “Behold.”

2 tn Grk “come in to him.”

sn The expression in Greek does not mean entrance into the person, as is popularly taken, but entrance into a room or building toward the person. See ExSyn 380-82. Some interpreters understand the door here to be the door to the Laodicean church, and thus a collective or corporate image rather than an individual one.

3 tn Grk “The one who conquers, to him I will grant.”

4 tn Or “who is victorious”; traditionally, “who overcomes.”

5 tn Grk “I will give [grant] to him.”

6 tn Or “have been victorious”; traditionally, “have overcome.”
