NET © Notes

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

tn Grk “having.”

sn A golden censer was a bowl in which incense was burned. The imagery suggests the OT role of the priest.

tn The verb “to station” was used to translate ἑστάθη (Jestaqh) because it connotes the idea of purposeful arrangement in English, which seems to be the idea in the Greek.

tn Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation. Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.
