Revelation 2:14

Context
2:14 But I have a few things against you: You have some people there who follow the teaching of Balaam, 6  who instructed Balak to put a stumbling block 7  before the people 8  of Israel so they would eat food sacrificed to idols and commit sexual immorality. 9 

Revelation 2:29

Context
2:29 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’

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.

5 tn Or “who is victorious”; traditionally, “who overcomes.”

6 sn See Num 22-24; 31:16.

7 tn That is, a cause for sinning. An alternate translation is “who instructed Balak to cause the people of Israel to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols…”

8 tn Grk “sons,” but the expression υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραήλ (Juioi Israhl) is an idiom for the people of Israel as an ethnic entity (see L&N 11.58).

9 tn Due to the actual events in the OT (Num 22-24; 31:16), πορνεῦσαι (porneusai) is taken to mean “sexual immorality.” BDAG 854 s.v. πορνεύω 1 states, “engage in illicit sex, to fornicate, to whore…W. φαγεῖν εἰδωλόθυτα ‘eat meat offered to idols’ Rv 2:14, 20.”
