NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the introduction of new but related material.

tn Grk “who were sealed.”

tn Normally, “every,” but since 144,000 is the total number, “all” is clearer here.

tn Grk “the sons of Israel,” normally an idiom for the Israelites as an ethnic entity (L&N 11.58). However, many scholars understand the expression in this context to refer to Christians rather than ethnic Israelites.
