This paper intends an assessment of the textual form of Rev 21:3c as an OT reference; as such it may have something to contribute to the discussion commenced by Menken and continued by Schuchard on deciphering the form of the OT in the NT. Even though other aspects of Revelation study may be vital, the limitations of this research preclude more than the most cursory excursion, if any at all, into the ongoing dialogue on the use of the OT in the NT,language, style, authorship, unity, symbolism, the historical context of Revelation, or whether the author of the Gospel, the Epistles, and the Apocalypse are one and the same• Moreover, regrettably, textual references do not include the literature of either the Qumran community or the Pseudepigrapha but are limited to the MT, LXX, and other non-LXX texts of the Greek QT.
