Revelation 2:27 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Shall rule (ποιμανεῖ)

Lit., shall shepherd. A comparison with Revelation 7:17, brings out the terrible irony in this word. Compare Psalm 2:9, Sept., where the same word is used. A.V., break. See on rule, Matthew 2:6; see on feed, Acts 20:28; see on 1 Peter 5:2; see on Jde 1:12.

Rod (ῥάβδῳ)

Commonly rendered staff, once sceptre, Hebrews 1:8. This is its meaning here.

Vessels (σκεύη)

See on goods, Matthew 12:29; see on vessel, 1 Peter 3:7.

Of the potter (κεραμικὰ)

From κέραμος potter's clay.

Shall they be broken to shivers

The A.V. follows the reading συντριβήσεται, the future tense of the verb. The correct reading is συντρίβεται, the present tense. Render therefore, as Rev., "as the vessels of the potter are broken." See on Mark 5:4, and see on bruising, Luke 9:39. The σύν together gives the picture of the fragments collapsing into a heap.
