Revelation 7:11-12

Context

7:11 And all the angels stood 1  there in a circle around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they threw themselves down with their faces to the ground 2  before the throne and worshiped God, 7:12 saying,

“Amen! Praise and glory,

and wisdom and thanksgiving,

and honor and power and strength

be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”

1 tn The verb is pluperfect, but the force is simple past. See ExSyn 586.

2 tn Grk “they fell down on their faces.” BDAG 815 s.v. πίπτω 1.b.α.ב. has “fall down, throw oneself to the ground as a sign of devotion or humility, before high-ranking persons or divine beings.”
