Revelation 3:11

I come quickly (ercomai tacu). As in Acts 2:16 ; Acts 22:7 Acts 22:12 Acts 22:20 . "The keynote of the book" (Beckwith). But allow the author's own meaning of "quickly." Hold fast that which thou hast (kratei o ecei). Sort of motto for each church ( Acts 2:25 ). That no one take (ina mhdei labh). Purpose clause with ina and second aorist active subjunctive of lambanw. Here to take away "thy crown" ( Acts 2:10 ) which will be thine if really won and not forfeited by failure ( 2 Timothy 4:8 ). In that case it will go to another ( Matthew 25:28 Romans 11:17 ).
