Revelation 4:4

Context
4:4 In 1  a circle around the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on those thrones were twenty-four elders. They were 2  dressed in white clothing and had golden crowns 3  on their heads.

Revelation 4:10

Context
4:10 the twenty-four elders throw themselves to the ground 4  before the one who sits on the throne and worship the one who lives forever and ever, and they offer their crowns 5  before his 6  throne, saying:

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

2 tn Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation by supplying the words “They were” to indicate the connection to the preceding material.

3 sn See the note on the word crown in Rev 3:11.

4 tn Grk “the twenty-four elders fall down.” 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.”

5 sn See the note on the word crown in Rev 3:11.

6 tn The pronoun “his” is understood from the demonstrative force of the article τοῦ (tou) before θρόνου (qronou).
