Revelation 11:3-5

Context
11:3 And I will grant my two witnesses authority 1  to prophesy for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth. 11:4 (These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.) 2  11:5 If 3  anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths 4  and completely consumes 5  their enemies. If 6  anyone wants to harm them, they must be killed this way.

1 tn The word “authority” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. “Power” would be another alternative that could be supplied here.

2 sn This description is parenthetical in nature.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

4 tn This is a collective singular in Greek.

5 tn See L&N 20.45 for the translation of κατεσθίω (katesqiw) as “to destroy utterly, to consume completely.”

6 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.
