Revelation 18:7

Context
18:7 As much as 1  she exalted herself and lived in sensual luxury, 2  to this extent give her torment and grief because she said to herself, 3  ‘I rule as queen and am no widow; I will never experience grief!’

Revelation 18:16

Context
18:16 saying,

“Woe, woe, O great city –

dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet clothing, 4 

and adorned with gold, 5  precious stones, and pearls –

1 tn “As much as” is the translation of ὅσα (Josa).

2 tn On the term ἐστρηνίασεν (estrhniasen) BDAG 949 s.v. στρηνιάω states, “live in luxury, live sensually Rv 18:7. W. πορνεύειν vs. 9.”

3 tn Grk “said in her heart,” an idiom for saying something to oneself.

4 tn The word “clothing” is supplied to clarify that the words “purple” and “scarlet” refer to cloth or garments rather than colors.

5 tn Grk “gilded with gold” (an instance of semantic reinforcement, see L&N 49.29).
