"The paradise of God" (Rev. 2:7)—The Greek word "paradeisos" (paradise) is thought to be of Persian origin, and was originally used in the sense of a large, shady, and well-watered garden, grove, or park; and it may be noted that in the Septuagint Version of Genesis 2:8 this is the word used to translate the Hebrew "gan," which is rendered "garden" by our King James translators.
