Revelation 2:26 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Keepeth my works (τηρῶν τὰ ἔργα μου)

The phrase occurs only here in the New Testament. The works are those which Christ commands, which He does, and which are the fruits of His Spsrit. See on John 4:47.

Power (ἐξουσίαν)

See on John 1:12. Rev., better, authority.

Nations (ἐθνῶν)

See on Matthew 25:32, and see on Gentiles, Luke 2:32. Properly, here, the Gentiles, as opposed to the true Israel of God.
