Revelation 21:24

Amidst the light thereof (dia tou pwto auth). Rather "by the light thereof." From Isaiah 60:3 Isaiah 60:11 Isaiah 60:20 . All the moral and spiritual progress of moderns is due to Christ, and the nations of earth will be represented, including "the kings" (oi basilei), mentioned also in Isaiah 60:3 , "do bring their glory into it" (perousin thn doxan autwn ei authn). Present active indicative of perw. Swete is uncertain whether this is a picture of heaven itself or "some gracious purpose of God towards humanity which has not yet been revealed" and he cites Isaiah 22:2 in illustration. The picture is beautiful and glorious even if not realized here, but only in heaven.
