The lamb will be their shepherd (Rev 7:17)

“The lamb

At the center

Of the throne

Will be their shepherd.

He will guide them

To the springs

Of the water of life.

God will wipe away

Every tear

From their eyes.”

ὅτι τὸ Ἀρνίον τὸ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ θρόνου ποιμανεῖ αὐτούς καὶ ὁδηγήσει αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ ζωῆς πηγὰς ὑδάτων· καὶ ἐξαλείψει ὁ Θεὸς πᾶν δάκρυον ἐκ τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτῶν.

Paul said “The lamb (ὅτι τὸ Ἀρνίον) at the center of the throne (τὸ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ θρόνου) will be their shepherd (ποιμανεῖ αὐτούς).  He will guide them (καὶ ὁδηγήσει αὐτοὺς) to the springs of the water of life (ἐπὶ ζωῆς πηγὰς ὑδάτων).  God (ὁ Θεὸς) will wipe away (καὶ ἐξαλείψει) every tear (πᾶν δάκρυον) from their eyes (ἐκ τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτῶν).”  John said that the lamb was beside the throne.  He would be the new shepherd of this great multitude of white robed gentiles.  This lamb shepherd would guide this large innumerable group of people to the waters of life.  They would not have any suffering or crying anymore.  The lamb would wipe away every tear from their eyes.  Would you like to stop crying?
