Revelation 21:4 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

4. God shall wipe ] Read simply, and shall wipe, or, and He shall wipe, according as it is thought necessary or not to begin a new sentence. The name of “God” is introduced from the parallel passage, Rev 7:17: in Isa 25:8 the names used are those traditionally represented by “the Lord God.”

there shall be no more death ] More exactly, death shall be no more, having been destroyed in the Lake of Fire, Rev 20:14: not that the personification is put forward here.

neither sorrow … any more pain ] Better, neither shall there be sorrow, nor crying, nor pain any more. See Isa 35:10; Isa 51:11; Isa 65:19.

for the former things are passed away ] for should probably be omitted; and the word for “former” is literally, first.
