1. Revelation 21:8 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

Who will not inherit the new heaven and the new earth?

Revelation 21:8 (ESV)

8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

The list presented in this verse mentions all those who still live a sinful life. It is a severe warning, already announced as part of the messages to the seven churches (Revelation 2:11; Revelation 3:5).

Similar lists are found in other parts of the New Testament: Galatians 5:19–21; Ephesians 3:3–5; Revelation 22:15.
