HCSB Footnotes
Or great symbolic display ; see Rv 12:3
Or another symbolic display
Or crowns
Or rule
Lit God, that they might feed her there
In Gk, diabolos means slanderer.
In Hb, Satan means adversary.
This expression, occurring in Dn 7:25; 12:7, = 3 1/2 years or 42 months (Rv 11:2; 13:5) or 1,260 days (Rv 11:3).
Or seed
Other mss read I. “He” is apparently a reference to the dragon.
Some translations put Rv 12:18 either in Rv 12:17 or Rv 13:1.
