Revelation 2:7

2:7 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, 1  I will permit 2  him to eat from the tree of life that is 3  in the paradise of God.’ 4 

1 tn Or “who is victorious”; traditionally, “who overcomes.” The pendent dative is allowed to stand in the English translation because it is characteristic of the author’s style in Revelation.

2 tn Or “grant.”

3 tn Or “stands.”

4 tc The omission of “my” (μου, mou) after “God” (θεοῦ, qeou) is well attested, supported by א A C and the Andreas of Caesarea group of Byzantine mss (ÏA). Its addition in 1611, the ÏK group, latt, and others, seems to be evidence of a purposeful conforming of the text to 3:2 and the four occurrences of “my God” (θεοῦ μου) in 3:12.
