 The manna represents Christ Himself as He came down from heaven and took a place of abasement in the world. Those who were slipping away into the world are reminded of the place which Christ took down here. The "hidden manna" refers to the use which was made of the manna for the ark: a certain portion of it was taken into the holy place as a memorial before God. The faithful are to eat not of the manna only, but of the hidden manna. (Lectures on Revelation 2:12-18 by W. Kelly)
 How sweet in glory it will be, that He who will have brought us into all the enjoyment and peace of heaven is the same One we have known in all His path of sorrow and rejection in this world, with whom we have shared it ever so feebly here, feeding on Him as our portion even now! The white stone was a mark of entire acquittal. (Lectures on Revelation 2:12-18 by W. Kelly)
 and such shall have the white stone, "and on the stone a new name written, which no one knoweth save he that receiveth it" (i.e., the expression of Christ's own secret satisfaction in the way in which you have suffered for Him and served Him below). (Lectures on Revelation 2:12-18 by W. Kelly)

^of: Very many mss. insert φαγεῖν ἀπό, contrary to ABC., thirty mss., Vulg., Cop., Æth. (B reads τό, and so the Latins). (Rev. of John, 1860, p.8)
^of: Rec. φαγεῖν ἀπὸ, but the MSS. of greatest authority want the words. (Prospect 1:154)
hidden... stone... knoweth: C. has κεκρυμένου, (so 28.) ψῆμον, and κενόν, (so 95.) which last is edited in Compl. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.8)
knoweth: οἶδεν ABC., forty-eight mss., Compl., for ἔγνω in many cursives, Rec. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.8)
knoweth: there is a curious fact of a reading (ἕγνω) introduced by Erasmus, whose MS. here failed, without one known witness, followed in the Greek Bible of Aldus (1518), Cephaloeus (1524), and by Colinaeus (1534); as also in the editions of R. Stephens, of Beza, and of the Elzevirs. In the Complutensian it is of course οἶδεν, and so in all critical editions, Gratz following it, but not Goldhagen. Bengel avoided the error. Yet it is remarkable that all the English translations are right in giving "knoweth," which answers not to ἔγνω which they read, but to οἶδεν, a reading which few of them saw, or thought of. (Bible Treasury 14:143)
