Revelation 18:8

Context
18:8 For this reason, she will experience her plagues 1  in a single day: disease, 2  mourning, 3  and famine, and she will be burned down 4  with fire, because the Lord God who judges her is powerful!”

Revelation 18:16

Context
18:16 saying,

“Woe, woe, O great city –

dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet clothing, 5 

and adorned with gold, 6  precious stones, and pearls –

1 tn Grk “For this reason, her plagues will come.”

2 tn Grk “death.” θάνατος (qanatos) can in particular contexts refer to a manner of death, specifically a contagious disease (see BDAG 443 s.v. 3; L&N 23.158).

3 tn This is the same Greek word (πένθος, penqo") translated “grief” in vv. 7-8.

4 tn Here “burned down” was used to translate κατακαυθήσεται (katakauqhsetai) because a city is in view.

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

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