Revelation 8:10-11

Context

8:10 Then 1  the third angel blew his trumpet, and a huge star burning like a torch fell from the sky; 2  it landed 3  on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 8:11 (Now 4  the name of the star is 5  Wormwood.) 6  So 7  a third of the waters became wormwood, 8  and many people died from these waters because they were poisoned. 9 

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

2 tn Or “from heaven” (the same Greek word means both “heaven” and “sky”).

3 tn Grk “fell.”

4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” in keeping with the parenthetical nature of this remark.

5 tn Grk “is called,” but this is somewhat redundant in contemporary English.

6 sn Wormwood refers to a particularly bitter herb with medicinal value. According to L&N 3.21, “The English term wormwood is derived from the use of the plant as a medicine to kill intestinal worms.” This remark about the star’s name is parenthetical in nature.

7 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the implied result of the star falling on the waters.

8 tn That is, terribly bitter (see the note on “Wormwood” earlier in this verse).

9 tn Grk “and many of the men died from these waters because they were bitter.”
