Revelation 12:3-4

Context
12:3 Then 1  another sign appeared in heaven: a huge red dragon that had seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadem crowns. 2  12:4 Now 3  the dragon’s 4  tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. Then 5  the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born.

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

2 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.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate that this remark is virtually parenthetical.

4 tn Grk “its”; the referent (the dragon) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

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