My first reading of this text, (due to not having my glasses on), saw this comma as a full stop (Γράψον. ὅτι ...) which provides the meaning:Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ τῷ θρόνῳ, Ἰδοὺ καινὰ ποιῶ πάντα καὶ λέγει, Γράψον, ὅτι οὗτοι οἱ λόγοι πιστοὶ καὶ ἀληθινοί εἰσιν.
Which seemed quite odd. So I checked, and of course all translations extend the quote:And he said “Write”, because these words are faithful and true.
I.e. the in the first instance the value judgement is by the author, as opposed to the second where the value judgement comes from God.And he said “Write, because these words are faithful and true.”
So, this morning, with my glasses on, I realize it’s a comma, not a full stop, but even so I am left with the question: have I made a grammatical mistake with how ”Γράψον, ὅτι ...” works, or is it actually a theoretically possible reading?
