Revelation 6:6


Then 1  I heard something like a voice from among the four living creatures saying, “A quart 2  of wheat will cost a day’s pay 3  and three quarts of barley will cost a day’s pay. But 4  do not damage the olive oil and the wine!”


Ps 76:10; Re 9:4

NET © Notes

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

tn BDAG 1086 s.v. χοῖνιξ states, “a dry measure, oft. used for grain, approximately equivalent to one quart or one liter, quart. A χ.of grain was a daily ration for one pers.…Rv 6:6ab.”

tn Grk “a quart of wheat for a denarius.” A denarius was one day’s pay for an average worker. The words “will cost” are used to indicate the genitive of price or value; otherwise the English reader could understand the phrase to mean “a quart of wheat to be given as a day’s pay.”

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.
