Revelation 19:7 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Marriage of the Lamb, Rev 19:7-9
7. honour ] Better, the glory.
the marriage of the Lamb ] The first suggestion of this image in the N. T. is in our Lord’s parables, St Mat 22:2; Mat 25:1-10: it is more fully worked out by St Paul, Eph 5:22-32. But men’s minds were prepared for it by the language of all the Prophets about the spiritual marriage of the Lord and Israel: still more, perhaps, by that of the 45th Psalm, rising so far above the royal marriage that no doubt furnished its occasion. And there is little doubt that the Song of Songs was already mystically interpreted among the Jews, though its claim to a place in the Canon was still disputed.

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges is a biblical commentary set published in parts by Cambridge University Press from 1882 onwards. Anglican bishop John Perowne was the general editor. The first section published was written by theologian Thomas Kelly Cheyne and covered the Book of Micah.
Perowne exercised limited editorial control over the writers of individual commentaries: his aim was "to leave each contributor to the unfettered exercise of his own judgment".
