Revelation 3:4

A few names (oliga onomata). This use of onoma for persons is seen in the Koin (Deissmann, Bible Studies, p. 196f.) as in Acts 1:15 ; Revelation 11:13 . Did not defile (ouk emolunan). First aorist active indicative of molunw ( 1 Corinthians 8:7 ; 1 Peter 1:4 ), pollution. They shall walk (peripathsousin). Future active of peripatew, promise of fellowship with Christ (met emou, with me) "in white" (en leukoi), as symbols of purity ( 1 Peter 7:9 1 Peter 7:13 ) like the angel ( Matthew 28:3 ), with possibly a reference to Enoch ( Genesis 5:22 ). For they are worthy (oti axioi eisin). To walk with Christ, not worthy in the same sense as God and Christ ( Genesis 4:11 ; Genesis 5:9 ), but in a relative sense. See Revelation 16:6 for bad sense of axio.
