Revelation 21:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

With men

Men at large. No longer with an isolated people like Israel.

He shall dwell (σκηνώσει)

Lit., tabernacle. Only in Revelation and John 1:14. The word "denotes much more than the mere general notion of dwelling. There lies in it one of the particulars of that identification of Christ and His people which is fundamental to the seer." See on John 1:14. Compare Ezekiel 37:27, Ezekiel 37:28.

People (λαοὶ)

Notice the plural, peoples (so Rev.), because many nations shall partake of the fulfillment of the promise. Compare Revelation 21:24.

And God Himself shall be with them and be their God

And be is inserted. The Greek is shall be with them their God.
