16:5 Now 1 I heard the angel of the waters saying:
“You are just 2 – the one who is and who was,
the Holy One – because you have passed these judgments, 3
16:6 because they poured out the blood of your saints and prophets,
1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the somewhat parenthetical nature of the remarks that follow.
2 tn Or “righteous,” although the context favors justice as the theme.
3 tn Or “because you have judged these things.” The pronoun ταῦτα (tauta) is neuter gender.
4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate that this judgment is the result of what these wicked people did to the saints and prophets.
5 tn Grk “They are worthy”; i.e., of this kind of punishment. By extension, “they got what they deserve.”
