Revelation 21:2

Context
21:2 And I saw the holy city – the new Jerusalem – descending out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.

Revelation 21:9

Context
The New Jerusalem Descends

21:9 Then 1  one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven final plagues came and spoke to me, 2  saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb!”

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

2 tn Grk “with me.” The translation “with me” implies that John was engaged in a dialogue with the one speaking to him (e.g., Jesus or an angel) when in reality it was a one-sided conversation, with John doing all the listening. For this reason, μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ (met emou, “with me”) was translated as “to me.” See also v. 15.
