Revelation 9:15

Context
9:15 Then 1  the four angels who had been prepared for this 2  hour, day, 3  month, and year were set free to kill 4  a third of humanity.

Revelation 9:21

Context
9:21 Furthermore, 5  they did not repent of their murders, of their magic spells, 6  of their sexual immorality, or of their stealing.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the vision.

2 tn The Greek article τήν (thn) has been translated with demonstrative force here.

3 tn The Greek term καί (kai) has not been translated here and before the following term “month” since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

4 tn Grk “so that they might kill,” but the English infinitive is an equivalent construction to indicate purpose here.

5 tn Grk “and.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation, with “furthermore” used to indicate a continuation of the preceding.

6 tn On the term φαρμακεία (farmakeia, “magic spells”) see L&N 53.100: “the use of magic, often involving drugs and the casting of spells upon people – ‘to practice magic, to cast spells upon, to engage in sorcery, magic, sorcery.’ φαρμακεία: ἐν τῇ φαρμακείᾳ σου ἐπλανήθησαν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ‘with your magic spells you deceived all the peoples (of the world)’ Re 18:23.”
