Trusting in the God of Abraham. Loving Law and Prophets. Believing Christ and his Apostles. Found fathers in Paul, Job, Moses, John. Adoring Daniel and Jeremiah. Trying to live in Christ (and for that reason hating foolish images and carven crosses and similar stuff).

comment What is the “first resurrection”?
This part is missing in a whole lot more manuscripts than I remembered: Codex Sinaiticus, Syriac Peschitta, Manuscripts Nrs. 2030, 2053, 2062, 2077 (the majority texts of Koine, siglum M {k}). It is further missing in two early commentaries to the Apoc: Victorinus von Pettau (3rd cent.) and Beatus.

Hi Dan, I would be interested to learn how you would translate.

By running this ramble I wanted to prevent an answer that would try to appear technical. And I did not want t appear as if I were thinking matters of that (or even any other) sort could ever be just technical without any personal interest.

comment What is the “first resurrection”?
Hi Jon! The Nestle-Aland shows this part of the verse as missing in the Syriac Peschitta and Sinaiticus and in an early commentary, which author's name I can't recall right now. Thanks!

comment Is the Valley of Hinnom adequately translated as hell?
At some point I would have rendered this Valley of Hinnom as utter death and destruction (leaning on Jeremiah' words in ch. 7 of his book). But now it begins to seem silly to me. The whole issue is an annoying one. It annoys me greatly.
