    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:8

    Y le ha sido dado que se vista de tela de lino finísimo, limpio y resplandeciente; porque el lino finísimo son las acciones justas de los santos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 19:8

    Verse 8. Arrayed in fine linen] A prediction that the
    Church should become more pure in her doctrines, more pious in her experience, and more righteous in her conduct, than she had ever been from her formation.

    The fine linen here spoken of is not the righteousness of Christ imputed to believers, for it is here called the righteousness of the saints - that which the grace and Spirit of Christ has wrought in them.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen , etc.] Or Byssine: the Byssus, of which fine linen is made, is said to grow on a tree, in height like to a poplar, and its leaves like a willow, and to be brought out of Judea into Egypt, which the Egyptians used in most of their holy things f426 . A dress neat and modest, and not like the attire of the whore of Rome, ( Revelation 17:4) and this is said to be clean and white , and is interpreted in the next clause: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints , or righteousnesses; not good works, or their own righteousness; for though these are evidences of faith, by which the saints are justified, and are what God has prepared for them, that they should walk in them; yet these are not comparable to fine linen, clean and white, but are like filthy rags, and cannot justify in the sight of God; but the righteousness of Christ is meant, and justification by that; for that is the only justifying righteousness of the saints: and though it is but one, yet it may be called righteousnesses, or justifications, in the plural number; partly because of the several seasons in which the act of justification passes, first in God's mind from eternity, next on Christ as the surety, when he rose from the dead, and on all the elect in him, and then in the consciences of the saints when they believe, and the sentence of it will be notified and declared to men and angels at the last judgment; and partly because of the many persons that are justified by it, as also because of the excellency of it; so the Jews use the word in the plural number: the Targumist on ( Zechariah 3:4) paraphrases the text, I will clothe thee wkz , with righteousnesses f427 ; upon which words Jarchi has this note, change of beautiful garments is all one as if it had been said twykz righteousnesses: and because sin is like to filthy garments, righteousness is like to garments beautiful and white.

    Christ's righteousness may be compared to fine linen, clean and white, because of its spotless purity; those that are arrayed with it being unblamable and irreprovable, and without spot and blemish, and without fault before the throne; with this the Jewish church will be clothed; all the Lord's people will be righteous, they will have on the best robe, and wedding garment, which was despised by the Jews in Christ's time, who refused to come to the marriage feast; and their being arrayed with it will be owing to the grace of Christ, who grants it; and so Christ's righteousness is called the gift of righteousness, the free gift, and gift by grace, and abundance of grace; and faith, which receives it, and puts it on, is the gift of God, ( Romans 5:15-17 Ephesians 2:8). Not only the garment is a gift of grace, but the putting of it on is a grant from Christ, and what he himself does, ( Isaiah 61:10 Zechariah 3:4).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - Praising God for what we have, is praying for what is yet further to be done for us. There is harmony between the angels and the saints in thi triumphant song. Christ is the Bridegroom of his ransomed church. Thi second union will be completed in heaven; but the beginning of the glorious millennium (by which is meant a reign of Christ, or a state of happiness, for a thousand years on earth) may be considered as the celebration of his espousals on earth. Then the church of Christ, being purified from errors, divisions, and corruptions, in doctrine discipline, worship, and practice, will be made ready to be publicl owned by him as his delight and his beloved. The church appeared; no in the gay, gaudy dress of the mother of harlots, but in fine linen clean and white. In the robes of Christ's righteousness, imputed for justification, and imparted for sanctification. The promises of the gospel, the true sayings of God, opened, applied, and sealed by the Spirit of God, in holy ordinances, are the marriage-feast. This seem to refer to the abundant grace and consolation Christians will receiv in the happy days which are to come. The apostle offered honour to the angel. The angel refused it. He directed the apostle to the true an only object of religious worship; to worship God, and him alone. Thi plainly condemns the practice of those who worship the elements of bread and wine, and saints, and angels; and of those who do not believ that Christ is truly and by nature God, yet pay him a sort of worship They stand convicted of idolatry by a messenger from heaven. These ar the true sayings of God; of Him who is to be worshipped, as one with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    8. Fine linen (bussinon). See on
    Luke xvi. 19. The four vestments of the ordinary Jewish priest were made of linen or byssus. Their symbolic meaning depended in part on the whiteness and luster of their substance (kaqaron kai lampron pure and bright).

    Righteousness (dikaiwmata). More strictly, as Rev. righteous acts.
