Where did they come from? (Rev 7:13)

“Then one of the presbyters

Addressed me,


‘Who are these,

Robed in white?

Where did they come from?’”

Καὶ ἀπεκρίθη εἷς ἐκ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων λέγων μοι Οὗτοι οἱ περιβεβλημένοι τὰς στολὰς τὰς λευκὰς τίνες εἰσὶν καὶ πόθεν ἦλθον;

John said, “Then one of the presbyters (εἷς ἐκ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων) addressed (Καὶ ἀπεκρίθη) me (μοι), saying (λέγων), ‘Who are these (τίνες εἰσὶν), robed in white (Οὗτοι οἱ περιβεβλημένοι τὰς στολὰς τὰς λευκὰς)?  Where did they come from (καὶ πόθεν ἦλθον)?’”  Suddenly, one of the twenty-four presbyters spoke to John.  He wanted to know who all these people dressed in white were.  He wanted to know where did they come from?  John was now the expert.  One of the presbyter elders was asking him what was going on.  Have you ever become an instant expert?
