NET © Notes

tn The genitive noun πυρός (puros) has been translated as an attributive genitive (see also Rev 1:14).

tn For the translation of διάδημα (diadhma) as “diadem crown” see L&N 6.196.

sn Diadem crowns were a type of crown used as a symbol of the highest ruling authority in a given area, and thus often associated with kingship.

tn Grk “head, having.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

tn Although many translations supply a prepositional phrase to specify what the name was written on (“upon Him,” NASB; “on him,” NIV), there is no location for the name specified in the Greek text.
