"The four beasts" (Rev. 14:3)—It is plain from Revelation 4:6–8 that the four creatures were not all "beasts" in the sense of "animals," in that one of the four is there described as being "like a flying eagle." Indeed, the literal meaning of the word here rendered "beasts" is "living creatures," a translation preferred by many modern translators.
"Here is the patience of the saints" (Rev. 14:12)—Moffatt suggests the rendering: "This is what shows the patience of the saints;" while Weymouth (Fifth Edition) prefers: "Here is an opportunity for endurance on the part of the saints;" adding in a footnote the alternative rendering, "the secret of the endurance of the saints."
