Revelation 10:8


Then 1  the voice I had heard from heaven began to speak 2  to me 3  again, 4  “Go and take the open 5  scroll in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”


Isa 30:21; Re 10:4,5

NET © Notes

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

tn The participle λαλοῦσαν (lalousan) has been translated as “began to speak.” The use of πάλιν (palin) indicates an ingressive idea.

tn Grk “with me.” The translation “with me” implies that John was engaged in a dialogue with the one speaking to him (e.g., Jesus or an angel) when in reality it was a one-sided conversation, with John doing all the listening. For this reason, μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ (met emou, “with me”) was translated as “to me.”

tn Grk “again, saying.” The participle λέγουσαν (legousan) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

tn The perfect passive participle ἠνεῳγμένον (hnewgmenon) is in second attributive position and has been translated as an attributive adjective.
