NET © Notes

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

sn See Rev 4:6 where the sea of glass was mentioned previously.

tn Or “had been victorious over”; traditionally, “had overcome.”

tn Grk “of his name, standing.” A new sentence was started here in the translation by supplying the words “They were.”

tn Or “on.” The preposition ἐπί (epi) with the accusative case could mean “on, at, by, near”; given the nature of this scene appearing in a vision, it is difficult to know precisely which the author of Revelation intended. See BDAG 363 s.v. ἐπί 1.c.γ, “At, by, near someone or someth.

tn Grk “harps of God.” The phrase τοῦ θεοῦ (tou qeou) has been translated as a genitive of agency.
