NET © Notes

tn Grk “and there was given to him.” Here the passive construction has been simplified, the referent (the beast) has been specified for clarity, and καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

tn For the translation “proud words” (Grk “great things” or “important things”) see BDAG 624 s.v. μέγας 4.b.

tn Grk “to it was granted.”

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