1:11 saying: “Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches – to Ephesus, 1 Smyrna, 2 Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.”
1:19 Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. 3
2 tn Grk “and to Smyrna.” For stylistic reasons the conjunction καί (kai) and the preposition εἰς (eis) have not been translated before the remaining elements of the list. In lists with more than two elements contemporary English generally does not repeat the conjunction except between the next to last and last elements.
3 tn Grk “Therefore write the things that you saw, and the things that are, and the things that will take place after these things.” Verse 19 could also be translated (taking καί…καί [kai…kai] as “both…and”): “Therefore write what you have seen, both what things currently are and what is going to happen after these things.” The structure of this verse is debated.
