Revelation 19:2


19:2 because his judgments are true and just. 1 

For he has judged 2  the great prostitute

who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality,

and has avenged the blood of his servants 3  poured out by her own hands!” 4 

Revelation 19:11

The Son of God Goes to War

19:11 Then 5  I saw heaven opened and here came 6  a white horse! The 7  one riding it was called “Faithful” and “True,” and with justice 8  he judges and goes to war.

1 tn Compare the similar phrase in Rev 16:7.

2 tn Or “has punished.” See BDAG 568 s.v. κρίνω 5.b.α, describing the OT background which involves both the vindication of the innocent and the punishment of the guilty.

3 tn See the note on the word “servants” in 1:1.

4 tn Grk “from her hand” (referring to her responsibility in causing the blood of God’s followers to be shed).

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

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

7 tn A new sentence was started in the translation at this point and καί (kai) was not translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

8 tn Or “in righteousness,” but since the context here involves the punishment of the wicked and the vindication of the saints, “justice” was preferred.
