Revelation 19:14

Context
19:14 The 5  armies that are in heaven, dressed in white, clean, fine linen, 6  were following him on white horses.

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

2 tn The phrase “and here came” expresses the sense of καὶ ἰδού (kai idou).

3 tn A new sentence was started in the translation at this point and καί (kai) was not translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

4 tn Or “in righteousness,” but since the context here involves the punishment of the wicked and the vindication of the saints, “justice” was preferred.

5 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

6 tn On the term translated “fine linen,” BDAG 185 s.v. βύσσινος states, “made of fine linen, subst. τὸ β. fine linen, linen garmentRv 18:12, 16; 19:8, 14.”
