Revelation 3:5

Shall be arrayed (peribaleitai). Future middle indicative of periballw, to fling around one, here and in Revelation 4:4 with en and the locative, but usually in this book with the accusative of the thing, retained in the passive or with the middle (Revelation 7:9, Revelation 7:13; Revelation 10:1; Revelation 11:3; Revelation 12:1; Revelation 17:4; Revelation 18:16; Revelation 19:8, Revelation 19:13).

In white garments (en imatioiv leukoiv). Apparently the spiritual bodies in the risen life as in II Corinthians 5:1, II Corinthians 5:4 and often in Revelation (Revelation 3:4-5; Revelation 6:11; Revelation 7:9, Revelation 7:13 f.; Revelation 19:8).

I will in no wise blot out (ou mh ecaleiyw). Strong double negative ou mh and the first aorist active (or future) of ecaleifw, old word, to wipe out (Acts 3:19).

Of the book of life (ek thv biblou thv zwhv). Ablative case with ek. This divine register first occurs in Exodus 32:32 f. and often in the O.T. See Luke 10:20; Philippians 4:3; Revelation 13:8; Revelation 20:15; Revelation 21:27. The book is in Christ's hands (Revelation 13:8; Revelation 21:27).

His name (to onoma autou). The name of the one who overcomes (o nikwn). Clear reminiscence of the words of Christ about confessing to the Father those who confess him here (Matthew 10:32; Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26; Luke 12:8). Whether John knew the Synoptic Gospels (and why not?) he certainly knew such sayings of Jesus.
