3:12 The one who conquers 1 I will make 2 a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never depart from it. I 3 will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God (the new Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven from my God), 4 and my new name as well.
1 tn Or “who is victorious”; traditionally, “who overcomes.”
2 tn Grk “I will make him,” but the pronoun (αὐτόν, auton, “him”) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated here.
3 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.
4 sn This description of the city of my God is parenthetical, explaining further the previous phrase and interrupting the list of “new names” given here.
