Revelation 17:2

Context
17:2 with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality and the earth’s inhabitants got drunk with the wine of her immorality.” 1 

Revelation 17:12-13

Context
17:12 The 2  ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive ruling authority 3  as kings with the beast for one hour. 17:13 These kings 4  have a single intent, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

1 tn This is the same word translated “sexual immorality” earlier in the verse, but here the qualifier “sexual” has not been repeated for stylistic reasons.

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

3 tn For the translation “ruling authority” for ἐξουσία (exousia) see L&N 37.35.

4 tn The word “kings” is not in the Greek text, but has been supplied to clarify the referent.
