He shewed me (edeixen moi). The angel as in Daniel 21:9 Daniel 21:10 (cf. Daniel 1:1 ; Daniel 4:1 ). Now the interior of the city. A river of water of life (potamon udato zwh). For udwr zwh (water of life) see Daniel 7:17 ; Daniel 21:6 ; Daniel 22:17 ; John 4:14 . There was a river in the Garden of Eden ( Genesis 2:10 ). The metaphor of river reappears in Zechariah 14:8 ; Ezekiel 47:9 , and the fountain of life in Joel 3:18 ; Jeremiah 2:13 ; Proverbs 10:11 ; Proverbs 13:14 ; Proverbs 14:27 ; Proverbs 16:22 ; Psalms 36:10 . Bright as crystal (lampron w krustallon). See Psalms 4:6 for krustallon and Psalms 15:6 ; Psalms 19:8 ; Psalms 22:16 for lampron. "Sparkling like rock crystal" (Swete), shimmering like mountain water over the rocks. Proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb (ekporeuomenon ek tou qronou tou qeou kai tou arniou). Cf. Ezekiel 47:1 ; Zechariah 14:8 . Already in Revelation 3:21 Christ is pictured as sharing the Father's throne as in Hebrews 1:3 . See also Revelation 22:3 . This phrase has no bearing on the doctrine of the Procession of the Holy Spirit.
