“These are they which were not defiled with women: for they are virgines: These are they which follow the Lambe whithersoeuer hee goeth: These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits vnto God, and to the Lambe.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
14:4 These are they who had not been defiled with women - It seems that the deepest defilement, and the most alluring temptation, is put for every other. They are virgins - Unspotted souls; such as have preserved universal purity. These are they who follow the Lamb - Who are nearest to him. This is not their character, but their reward Firstfruits - Of the glorified spirits. Who is ambitious to be of this number?
Re 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women. This thought is always a symbol of purity of life; of refusing sinful intercourse with the world. Spiritual adultery or fornication is being wedded to the world and partaking of its sins. For they are virgins. This term is a symbol, and means that their lives are not defiled by the world. See 2Co 11:2. [Being] the firstfruits unto God, and to the Lamb. First fruits were always dedicated to God. See Nu 18:12. These holy ones are set apart and dedicated to God and the Lamb.
