NET © Notes

tn Grk “For this reason, her plagues will come.”

tn Grk “death.” θάνατος (qanatos) can in particular contexts refer to a manner of death, specifically a contagious disease (see BDAG 443 s.v. 3; L&N 23.158).

tn This is the same Greek word (πένθος, penqo") translated “grief” in vv. 7-8.

tn Here “burned down” was used to translate κατακαυθήσεται (katakauqhsetai) because a city is in view.
