“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:4 Yet thou hast a few names - That is, persons. But though few, they had not separated themselves from the rest; otherwise, the angel of Sardis would not have had them. Yet it was no virtue of his, that they were unspotted; whereas it was his fault that they were but few. Who have not defiled their garments - Either by spotting themselves, or by partaking of other men's sins. They shall walk with me in white - in joy; in perfect holiness; in glory. They are worthy - A few good among many bad are doubly acceptable to God. O how much happier is this worthiness than that mentioned, #Rev 16:6|.
Re 3:4 Thou hast a few names. Persons. Though the church as a whole is condemned, there were true saints who were commended. Which have not defiled their garments. Not been defiled by sin. They shall walk with me in white. In the robes of purity and triumph.
