Revelation 21:1 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

The New Heaven and Earth. Chap. Rev 21:1

1. a new heaven and a new earth ] Isa 65:17; Isa 66:22; referred to, as here, in 2Pe 3:13. It is idle to ask, what amount of change in the physical constitution of the universe is implied: the destruction of the earth, as a seat of life, and its renewal, would imply a complete change of the visible heavens. But a world “wherein dwelleth righteousness” would be a new world, even without any physical change at all.

there was no more sea ] More literally, the sea is no more. We cannot be sure that this is to be taken literally; we hear of a river in the next chapter, and a perennial stream implies an abundant reservoir of water somewhere. To us, the absence of sea seems, so to speak, a defect in the landscape, while to the ancients it seemed a pledge of security and of unfettered intercourse between all nations: see Isa 33:21. Hor. Od. I. iii. 22.
