NET © Notes

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

tn Or “sounds,” “voices.” It is not entirely clear what this refers to. BDAG 1071 s.v. φωνή 1 states, “In Rv we have ἀστραπαὶ καὶ φωναὶ καὶ βρονταί (cp. Ex 19:16) 4:5; 8:5; 11:19; 16:18 (are certain other sounds in nature thought of here in addition to thunder, as e.g. the roar of the storm?…).”

tn The singular ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") is used generically here to refer to the human race.
