    Re 11:1,2 Ex 40:3-5 Eze 41:1 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:15

    Y el que hablaba conmigo, tenía una caa de oro, para medir la ciudad, y sus puertas, y su muro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 21:15

    Verse 15. Had a golden
    reed] Several excellent MSS. add metron, a measure; he had a measuring rod made of gold. This account of measuring the city seems to be copied, with variations, from Ezek. xl. 3, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And he that talked with me , etc.] One of the seven
    angels, ( Revelation 21:9) for not a man is the measurer of this city, as in ( Ezekiel 40:3) nor John, as of the temple, ( Revelation 11:1) but an angel, the same that showed to John this great sight: had a golden reed ; not a common measuring reed, or rod, as in ( Ezekiel 40:4 Revelation 11:1) but one covered with gold, denoting the present glorious state of the church, being without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing: to measure the city ; the new Jerusalem, its length and breadth; (see Zechariah 2:1,2) to show how exactly conformable this church state will be to the rule of God's word, even to perfection: and the gates thereof; to signify who had a right to enter into it, and who not: and the wall thereof ; its height, it being exceeding high.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-21 -
    God has various employments for his holy angels. Sometimes they soun the trumpet of Divine Providence, and warn a careless world; sometime they discover things of a heavenly nature of the heirs of salvation Those who would have clear views of heaven, must get as near to heave as they can, on the mount of meditation and faith. The subject of the vision is the church of God in a perfect, triumphant state, shining in its lustre; glorious in relation to Christ; which shows that the happiness of heaven consists in intercourse with God, and in conformit to him. The change of emblems from a bride to a city, shows that we ar only to take general ideas from this description. The wall is for security. Heaven is a safe state; those who are there, are separate and secured from all evils and enemies. This city is vast; here is roo for all the people of God. The foundation of the wall; the promise an power of God, and the purchase of Christ, are the strong foundations of the safety and happiness of the church. These foundations are set fort by twelve sorts of precious stones, denoting the variety and excellenc of the doctrines of the gospel, or of the graces of the Holy Spirit, or the personal excellences of the Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven has gates there is a free admission to all that are sanctified; they shall no find themselves shut out. These gates were all of pearls. Christ is the Pearl of great price, and he is our Way to God. The street of the cit was pure gold, like transparent glass. The saints in heaven tread gol under foot. The saints are there at rest, yet it is not a state of sleep and idleness; they have communion, not only with God, but with one another. All these glories but faintly represent heaven.
