Revelation 21:6

They are come to pass (Gegonan). Second perfect active indicative of ginomai with -an for -asi. See Revelation 16:17 for a like use of gegonen, "They have come to pass." Here again it is the voice of God because, as in Revelation 1:8 , He says: I am the Alpha and the Omega (Egw to Alpa kai to O) with the addition "the beginning and the end" (h arch kai to telo), the whole used in Revelation 22:13 of Christ. In Isaiah 44:6 there is something like the addition, and in Colossians 1:18 ; Revelation 3:14 h arch is applied to Christ, while here God is the First Cause (arch) and the Finality (telo) as in Romans 11:36 ; Ephesians 4:6 . But God works through Christ ( John 1:3 ; Hebrews 1:2 ; Colossians 1:12-20 ). God is the bountiful Giver ( James 1:5 James 1:17 ) of the Water of Life. See Revelation 7:17 ; Rev 22:1 Rev 22:17 for this metaphor, which is based on Isaiah 55:1 . It is God's own promise (Egw dwsw), "I will give." Of the fountain (ek th phgh). For this partitive use of ek see Matthew 25:8 , without ek Revelation 2:17 . Freely (dwrean). See Matthew 10:8 ; John 4:10 ; Romans 3:24 ; Acts 8:20 ; Revelation 22:17 .
