    Clarke's Commentary on Revelation 21:5

    Behold, I make all things new - As the creation of the world at the beginning was the work of God alone, so this new creation.

    These words are true and faithful - Truth refers to the promise of these changes; faithfulness, to the fulfillment of these promises.

    Barnes' Notes on Revelation 21:5

    And he that sat upon the throne said - Probably the Messiah, the dispenser of the rewards of heaven. See the notes on Revelation 20:11.

    Behold, I make all things new - A new heaven and new earth Revelation 21:1, and an order of things to correspond with that new creation. The former state of things when sin and death reigned will be changed, and the change consequent on this must extend to everything.

    And he said unto me, Write - Make a record of these things, for they are founded in truth, and they are adapted to bless a suffering world. Compare the notes on Revelation 14:13. See also Revelation 1:19.

    For these words are true and faithful - They are founded in truth, and they are worthy to be believed. See the notes on Revelation 19:9. Compare also notes on Daniel 12:4.

    Wesley's Notes on Revelation 21:5

    21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said - Not to St. John only. From the first mention of him that sat upon the throne, Rev 4:2, this is the first speech which is expressly ascribed to him. And he - The angel. Saith to me Write - As follows. These sayings are faithful and true - This includes all that went before. The apostle seems again to have ceased writing, being overcome with ecstasy at the voice of him that spake.
