Revelation 7:4

Context
7:4 Now 1  I heard the number of those who were marked with the seal, 2  one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed from all 3  the tribes of the people of Israel: 4 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the introduction of new but related material.

2 tn Grk “who were sealed.”

3 tn Normally, “every,” but since 144,000 is the total number, “all” is clearer here.

4 tn Grk “the sons of Israel,” normally an idiom for the Israelites as an ethnic entity (L&N 11.58). However, many scholars understand the expression in this context to refer to Christians rather than ethnic Israelites.
