John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Revelation 21:13

On the east three gates
On which were written the names of Joseph, Benjamin, and Dan:

on the north three gates;
on which were written the names of Reuben, Judah, and Levi:

on the south three gates;
on which were written the names of Simeon, Issachar, and Zabulon:

and on the west three gates;
on which were written the names of Gad, Asher, and Naphtali; see ( Ezekiel 48:31-34 ) . This denotes the collection of the saints from all parts of the world, who shall come from east, west, north, and south, and sit down in the kingdom of God; and therefore here are gates at every point to enter in at; see ( Isaiah 43:5 Isaiah 43:6 ) ( Luke 13:29 ) .
