    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:17

    Y el Espíritu y la Esposa dicen: Ven. Y el que oye, diga: Ven. Y el que tiene sed, venga; y el que quiere, tome del agua de la vida gratuitamente.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 22:17

    Verse 17. The Spirit and the
    bride] All the prophets and all the apostles; the Church of God under the Old Testament, and the Church of Christ under the New.

    Say, Come.] Invite men to Jesus, that by him they may be saved and prepared for this kingdom.

    Let him that heareth] Let all who are privileged with reading and hearing the word of God, join in the general invitation to sinners.

    Him that is athirst] He who feels his need of salvation, and is longing to drink of the living fountain.

    And whosoever will] No soul is excluded: Jesus died for every man; every man may be saved; therefore let him who wills, who wishes for salvation, come and take the water of life freely - without money or price!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And the Spirit and the bride say, come , etc.] Hearing Christ say that he should come quickly, ( Revelation 22:7,12) the Spirit and the bride express an earnest wish, and a most affectionate desire after his coming: by the Spirit may be meant the Spirit of God in the hearts of his people, who not only convinces them of, and acquaints with the coming of Christ to judgment, and gives them reason to expect it, but fills their souls with the love of his appearance, so that they look and long for it, and hasten in the breathings of their souls after it: and this in like manner he may be said to wish for, and desire it in them, as he is said to cry Abba, Father, in them, ( Galatians 4:6) and to make intercession for them, ( Romans 8:26,27). Hence, some interpreters, by the spirit, understand such as have the Spirit, and are spiritual men; either have spiritual gifts, the gift of prophecy, as John, who in ( Revelation 22:20) expresses an ardent desire that Christ would come quickly; or regenerate men in common, who are born of the Spirit, and bear his name, ( John 3:5,6) and so by an hendyadis, the Spirit and the bride signify one and the same; namely, the spiritual bride of Christ, who is sanctified by the Spirit of God; even all the elect of God, whom Christ loved from all eternity, and who are espoused to him as a chaste virgin; the new Jerusalem, who is as a bride adorned for her husband, and is the bride, the Lamb's wife: these wait for the bridegroom's coming, and most earnestly desire it, as there is good reason for them so to do, since his appearing in itself will be a glorious one, being in his own glory, and his Father's, and the holy angels; and seeing then will be the solemnization of the marriage day between Christ and his church; it will be the saints' redemption day; they will then possess full salvation in soul and body; complete grace will be given to them, and glory will be revealed in them, and they shall be for ever with the Lord. And let him that heareth ; what the Spirit and the bride say; or the words of this prophecy; or that has spiritual ears given him, and he hears so as to understand spiritual things, the kingdom of Christ, and the glories of it, let him join the Spirit and bride, and say, come likewise; or express his wishes and desires in the same earnest and affectionate manner, that Christ would hasten his second coming: and let him that is athirst come . These seem to be the words of Christ inviting such who thirst after him, his grace and righteousness, after more knowledge of him, and communion with him, to come unto him, by faith, and partake thereof, ( John 7:37) or who thirst after his second coming, and the glories and delights of the new Jerusalem state, to come into it, and eat of the tree of life, and drink of the river of water of life in it; for the character seems to design such, to speak in the language of the Jews, who use like phrases with this, who hunger, yyj ym twtl yamxw , and thirst to drink living water f494 , as appears by what follows: and whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely . The water of life designs the free favour and love of God, and the communications and displays of it in the new Jerusalem state, even the comfort, refreshment, and glories of that state: to take it is to enjoy it, to partake of it, being led unto it, and that being given to them by Christ the Lamb in the midst of the throne, ( Revelation 7:17 21:6) and which is had freely, without money, and without price, as in ( Isaiah 55:1) which seems to be referred to; for the happiness of this state, as well as eternal life, is the free gift of God through Christ; and the persons encouraged to partake of it are whosoever will; that is, whoever has a will to divine and spiritual things, wrought in him by God, for no man has such a will of himself, ( Philippians 2:13) though this does not so much regard the character of the person that may take of the water of life, as the free manner in which he may take it: so the Jews are wont to express themselves, when they would signify the liberty that might be used, or the free way in which anything might be taken, particularly when speaking of the law, and the things of it, lwjyw aby lwjyl hxwrj lk , whosoever has a mind to take, let him come and take, as it is said, ( Isaiah 55:1) ho, everyone that thirsteth, etc. that is, he is free to take, he is welcome to it; which passage referred to, is thus paraphrased by the Targumist, ho, ybxd lk , whosoever will learn, let him come and learn, etc.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-19 - The
    Lord Jesus spake by the angel, solemnly confirming the contents of this book, particularly of this last vision. He is the Lord God faithful and true. Also by his messengers; the holy angels showed the to holy men of God. They are things that must shortly be done; Chris will come quickly, and put all things out of doubt. And by the integrity of that angel who had been the apostle's interpreter. He refused to accept religious worship from John, and reproved him for offering it. This presents another testimony against idolatrous worshi of saints and angels. God calls every one to witness to the declarations here made. This book, thus kept open, will have effec upon men; the filthy and unjust will be more so, but it will confirm strengthen, and further sanctify those who are upright with God. Neve let us think that a dead or disobedient faith will save us, for the First and the Last has declared that those alone are blessed who do his commandments. It is a book that shuts out form heaven all wicked an unrighteous persons, particularly those who love and make lies therefore cannot itself be a lie. There is no middle place of condition. Jesus, who is the Spirit of prophecy, has given his churche this morning-light of prophecy, to assure them of the light of the perfect day approaching. All is confirmed by an open and genera invitation to mankind, to come and partake freely of the promises an of the privileges of the gospel. The Spirit, by the sacred word, and by convictions and influence in the sinner's conscience, says, Come to Christ for salvation; and the bride, or the whole church, on earth an in heaven, says, Come and share our happiness. Lest any shoul hesitate, it is added, Let whosoever will, or, is willing, come an take of the water of life freely. May every one who hears or read these words, desire at once to accept the gracious invitation. All ar condemned who should dare to corrupt or change the word of God, eithe by adding to it, or taking from it.
