17:2 with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality and the earth’s inhabitants got drunk with the wine of her immorality.” 1
17:10 five have fallen; one is, 2 and the other has not yet come, but whenever he does come, he must remain for only a brief time.
17:12 The 3 ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive ruling authority 4 as kings with the beast for one hour.
1 tn This is the same word translated “sexual immorality” earlier in the verse, but here the qualifier “sexual” has not been repeated for stylistic reasons.
2 tn That is, one currently reigns.
3 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.
4 tn For the translation “ruling authority” for ἐξουσία (exousia) see L&N 37.35.
