“For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
King James Version (KJV)
22:15 Without are dogs - The sentence in the original is abrupt, as expressing abhorrence. The gates are ever open; but not for dogs; fierce and rapacious men.
Re 22:15 For without [are] dogs. In an oriental city the dogs, an unclean animal, are seen in great numbers in the streets, and are a disagreeable feature. These are taken to represent one type of sinners. Others with different characteristics are also given. And sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. All are "without". None of them ever pass through the portals of the New Jerusalem.
