Revelation 14:10-11

Context
14:10 that person 1  will also drink of the wine of God’s anger 2  that has been mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath, and he will be tortured with fire and sulfur 3  in front of the holy angels and in front of the Lamb. 14:11 And the smoke from their 4  torture will go up 5  forever and ever, and those who worship the beast and his image will have 6  no rest day or night, along with 7  anyone who receives the mark of his name.”

1 tn Grk “he himself.”

2 tn The Greek word for “anger” here is θυμός (qumos), a wordplay on the “passion” (θυμός) of the personified city of Babylon in 14:8.

3 tn Traditionally, “brimstone.”

4 tn The Greek pronoun is plural here even though the verbs in the previous verse are singular.

5 tn The present tense ἀναβαίνει (anabainei) has been translated as a futuristic present (ExSyn 535-36). This is also consistent with the future passive βασανισθήσεται (basanisqhsetai) in v. 10.

6 tn The present tense ἔχουσιν (ecousin) has been translated as a futuristic present to keep the English tense consistent with the previous verb (see note on “will go up” earlier in this verse).

7 tn Grk “and.”
