    Definitions for Revelation 22:15

    Without - Outside.

    Clarke's Commentary on Revelation 22:15

    Without are dogs - All those who are uncircumcised in heart. The Jews call all the uncircumcised dogs. "Who is a dog? Ans. He who is not circumcised." Pirkey Elieser, chap. 29.

    And sorcerers - See the note on Revelation 21:8.

    Barnes' Notes on Revelation 22:15

    For without are dogs - The wicked, the depraved, the vile: for of such characters the dogs, an unclean animal among the Jews, was regarded as a symbol, Deuteronomy 23:18. On the meaning of the expression, see the notes on Philippians 3:2. The word "without" means that they would not be admitted into the heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, Revelation 21:8, Revelation 21:27.

    And sorcerers, ... - All these characters are specified in Revelation 21:8, as excluded from heaven. See the notes on that verse. The only change is, that those who "love and make a lie" are added to the list; that is, who delight in lies, or what is false.

    Wesley's Notes on Revelation 22:15

    22:15 Without are dogs - The sentence in the original is abrupt, as expressing abhorrence. The gates are ever open; but not for dogs; fierce and rapacious men.
