Revelation 14:1

Context
An Interlude: The Song of the 144,000

14:1 Then 1  I looked, and here was 2  the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him were one hundred and forty-four thousand, who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

Revelation 14:20

Context
14:20 Then 3  the winepress was stomped 4  outside the city, and blood poured out of the winepress up to the height of horses’ bridles 5  for a distance of almost two hundred miles. 6 

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

2 tn The phrase “and here was” expresses the sense of καὶ ἰδού (kai idou).

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

4 sn The winepress was stomped. See Isa 63:3, where Messiah does this alone (usually several individuals would join in the process).

5 tn L&N 6.7 states, “In Re 14:20 the reference to a bit and bridle is merely an indication of measurement, that is to say, the height of the bit and bridle from the ground, and one may reinterpret this measurement as ‘about a meter and a half’ or ‘about five feet.’”

6 tn Grk “1,600 stades.” A stade was a measure of length about 607 ft (185 m). Thus the distance here would be 184 mi or 296 km.
