Revelation 21:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

New (καινὸν)

See on Matthew 26:29. Compare Isaiah 65:17.

There was no more sea (ἡ θάλασσα οὐκ ἔστιν ἔπι)

Lit., as Rev., the sea is no more. Here as in Revelation 20:13. Some explain the sea as the ungodly world. I cannot help thinking this interpretation forced. According to this explanation, the passage is in the highest degree tautological. The first earth was passed away, and the ungodly world was no more.
