NET © Notes

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

tn Or “powerful”; Grk “a great.”

tn Or “like hairy sackcloth” (L&N 8.13).

tn Grk “like blood,” understanding αἷμα (aima) as a blood-red color rather than actual blood (L&N 8.64).
