Revelation 11:2-3

Context
11:2 But 1  do not measure the outer courtyard 2  of the temple; leave it out, 3  because it has been given to the Gentiles, 4  and they will trample on the holy city 5  for forty-two months. 11:3 And I will grant my two witnesses authority 6  to prophesy for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

2 tn On the term αὐλήν (aulhn) BDAG 150 s.v. αὐλή 1 states, “(outer) court of the temple…Rv 11:2.”

3 tn The precise meaning of the phrase ἔκβαλε ἔξωθεν (ekbale exwqen) is difficult to determine.

4 tn Or “to the nations” (the same Greek word may be translated “Gentiles” or “nations”).

5 sn The holy city appears to be a reference to Jerusalem. See also Luke 21:24.

6 tn The word “authority” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. “Power” would be another alternative that could be supplied here.
