Revelation 11:8-9

Context
11:8 Their 1  corpses will lie in the street 2  of the great city that is symbolically 3  called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also crucified. 11:9 For three and a half days those from every 4  people, tribe, 5  nation, and language will look at their corpses, because they will not permit them to be placed in a tomb. 6 

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

2 tn The Greek word πλατεῖα (plateia) refers to a major (broad) street (L&N 1.103).

3 tn Grk “spiritually.”

4 tn The word “every” is not in the Greek text, but is implied by the following list.

5 tn The Greek term καί (kai) has not been translated before this and the following items in the list, since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

6 tn Or “to be buried.”
