    King James Bible - Revelation 3:12

    Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

    World English Bible

    He who overcomes, I will make him a
    pillar in the temple of my God, and he will go out from there no more. I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God, and my own new name.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 3:12

    He that shall overcome, I will make him a
    pillar in the temple of my God; and he shall go out no more; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and my new name.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Him that overcometh, will I make a
    pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out no more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    Al que venciere, yo lo har columna en el templo de mi Dios, y nunca ms saldr fuera; y escribir sobre l el Nombre de mi Dios, y el nombre de la Ciudad de mi Dios, que es la nueva Jerusaln, la cual desciende del cielo de con mi Dios, y mi Nombre nuevo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 3:12

    Verse 12. A
    pillar in the temple] There is probably all allusion here to the two pillars in the temple of Jerusalem, called Jachin and Boaz, stability and strength. The Church is the temple; CHRIST is the foundation on which it is built; and his ministers are the PILLARS by which, under him, it is adorned and supported. St. Paul has the same allusions, Gal. ii. 9.

    I will write upon him the name of my God] That is, I will make him a priest unto myself. The priest had written on his forehead hwhyl dwq kodesh laihovah, "Holiness to the Lord." And the name of the city of my God] As the high priest had on his breastplate the names of the twelve tribes engraved, and these constituted the city or Church of God; Christ here promises that in place of them the twelve apostles, representing the Christian Church, shall be written, which is called the New Jerusalem, and which God has adopted in place of the twelve Jewish tribes.

    My new name.] The saviour of ALL; the light that lightens the GENTILES; the CHRIST; the Anointed One; the only GOVERNOR of his Church; and the Redeemer of ALL mankind.

    There is here an intimation that the Christian Church is to endure for ever; and the Christian ministry to last as long as time endures: He shall go no more out for ever.

    Epistle to the Church of the Laodiceans.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. He that overcometh , etc.] In the hour of temptation, in this period of time; that stands his ground then, sustains the shock of the beast, with courage and intrepidity, and overcomes him: will I make a pillar in the temple of my God ; by which is meant not the church triumphant, though such will have a place, and an abiding one there; but the church militant, so called in allusion to the temple at Jerusalem, for its author, matter, situation, strength, solidity, magnificence, and stateliness, and for its holiness; and may be said to be the temple of God, because it is of his building, and is the place where he dwells, and is worshipped; and the temple of Christ's God, as he is man and Mediator, through whom all worship is given to God in it; and those who are overcomers by the grace and strength of Christ are made pillars by him here, in allusion to the two pillars, Jachin and Boaz, in Solomon's temple; that is, they become very ornamental in the church, they are made honourable members of it; they come in at the right door into it, and fill up their places, and all relative duties in it, and walk becoming their profession; and, like pillars, are a support to it, to the interest of the church, the truths of the Gospel, and to weak and poor saints; and, as pillars, they are upright in heart and conversation, and are steady, firm, and constant: and he shall go no more out ; out of the church, the temple of the Lord, but shall abide in it unto death: it is a promise of perseverance both in the grace of God, and in a profession of religion; there shall not be such instances of apostasy as now. And I will write upon him the name of my God ; in allusion to inscriptions of names on pillars; the sense is, that it should be manifest that such are interested in God, as their covenant God and Father, in like manner as he is the God and Father of Christ; and this should be as plain and as evident as an inscription on a pillar, or as if it was written upon their foreheads, as the high priest had on his forehead written, holiness to the Lord; and indeed it will be by their holiness that it will so clearly appear that God is their covenant God; for in this church state, or spiritual reign of Christ, holiness unto the Lord shall be upon the bells of the horses: and the name of the city of my God; [which is] new Jerusalem , in allusion to Jehovah Shammah; meaning the Gospel church in the latter day glory; and the sense is, that such shall be manifestly citizens of this city, in this new and glorious state of the church, and shall enjoy all the privileges of it, which at this time especially will be many and great. This will not be the new Jerusalem church state, or the thousand years' reign of Christ in person, for in that there will be no temple, as in this; but it will have the name, and some appearance of it; it will bear some resemblance to it, and be a pledge of it: which cometh down out of heaven, from my God ; as it is before called new Jerusalem, in distinction from the old, so here it is said to come down from heaven, or to be the heavenly Jerusalem, in distinction from the earthly one.

    The inhabitants of it will be born from above, and be called with an heavenly calling, and their conversation will be in heaven, and all the glory of this church will come from God. And [I will write upon him] my new name ; either the name of Jehovah our righteousness; or rather the name of King of kings, and Lord of lords, ( Revelation 19:16); which Christ will now acquire, or at least this will now be made more manifest upon the destruction of antichrist, in this church state; in which conquest he will make all his people sharers, and they shall now more openly appear to be kings, and to reign with him in his spiritual kingdom.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-13 - The same Lord Jesus has the key of government and authority in and ove the church. He opens a door of opportunity to his churches; he opens door of utterance to his ministers; he opens a door of entrance, open the heart. He shuts the door of heaven against the foolish, who slee away their day of grace; and against the workers of iniquity, how vai and confident soever they may be. The church in Philadelphia i commended; yet with a gentle reproof. Although Christ accepts a littl strength, yet believers must not rest satisfied in a little, but striv to grow in grace, to be strong in faith, giving glory to God. Chris can discover this his favour to his people, so that their enemies shal be forced to acknowledge it. This, by the grace of Christ, will softe their enemies, and make them desire to be admitted into communion with his people. Christ promises preserving grace in the most trying times as the reward of past faithfulness; To him that hath shall be given Those who keep the gospel in a time of peace, shall be kept by Chris in an hour of temptation; and the same Divine grace that has made the fruitful in times of peace, will make them faithful in times of persecution. Christ promises a glorious reward to the victoriou believer. He shall be a monumental pillar in the temple of God; monument of the free and powerful grace of God; a monument that shal never be defaced or removed. On this pillar shall be written the ne name of Christ; by this will appear, under whom the believer fought the good fight, and came off victorious.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12.
    Pillar (stulon). The word occurs, Gal. ii. 9; 1 Tim. iii. 15; Apoc. x. 1. The reference here is not to any prominence in the earthly church, as Gal. ii. 9, but to blessedness in the future state. The exact meaning is doubtful. Some explain, he shall have a fixed and important place in the glorified church. Compare Matt. xix. 28. Others emphasize the idea of stability, and find a possible local reference to the frequent earthquakes from which Philadelphia had suffered, and which had shaken its temples. Strabo says: "And Philadelphia has not even its walls unimpaired, but daily they are shaken in some way, and gaps are made in them. But the inhabitants continue to occupy the land notwithstanding their sufferings, and to build new houses." Others again emphasize the idea of beauty. Compare 1 Pet. ii. 5, where the saints are described living stones.

    Temple (naw). See on Matt. iv. 5.

    Upon him. The conqueror, not the pillar. Compare chapter vii. 3; ix. 4; xiv. 1; xxii. 4. Probably with reference to the golden plate inscribed with the name of Jehovah, and worn by the High-Priest upon his forehead (Exod. xxviii. 36, 38). See on chapter ii. 17.

    New Jerusalem. See Ezek. xlviii. 35. The believer whose brow is adorned with this name has the freedom of the heavenly city. Even on earth his commonwealth is in heaven (Philip. iii. 20). "Still, his citizenship was latent: he was one of God's hidden ones; but now he is openly avouched, and has a right to enter in by the gates to the city" (Trench). The city is called by John, the great and holy (Chapter xxi. 10); by Matthew, the holy city (iv. 5); by Paul, Jerusalem which is above (Gal. iv. 6); by the writer to the Hebrews, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem (Heb. xii. 22). Plato calls his ideal city Callipolis, the fair city ("Republic," vii., 527), and the name Ouranopolis, heavenly city, was applied to Rome and Byzantium. For new (kainhv), see on Matthew xxvi. 29. The new Jerusalem is not a city freshly built (nea), but is new (kainh) in contrast with the old, outworn, sinful city. In the Gospel John habitually uses the Greek and civil form of the name, JIerosoluma; in Revelation, the Hebrew and more holy appellation, Jierousalhm. 78
