NET © Notes

tn One could also translate the imperfect tense here with a repetitive force like “begged him repeatedly.”

tn Or “command.”

tn This word, ἄβυσσος (abusso"), is a term for the place where the dead await the judgment. It also could hold hostile spirits according to Jewish belief (Jub. 5:6-7; 1 En. 10:4-6; 18:11-16).
