Revelation 7:9-12

Context

7:9 After these things I looked, and here was 1  an enormous crowd that no one could count, made up of persons from every nation, tribe, 2  people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb dressed in long white robes, and with palm branches in their hands. 7:10 They were shouting out in a loud voice,

“Salvation belongs to our God, 3 

to the one seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

7:11 And all the angels stood 4  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 5  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 phrase “and here was” expresses the sense of καὶ ἰδού (kai idou).

2 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated before each of the following categories, since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

3 tn The dative here has been translated as a dative of possession.

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

5 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.”
