"The paradise of God" (Rev. 2:7)—The Greek word "paradeisos" (paradise) is thought to be of Persian origin, and was originally used in the sense of a large, shady, and well-watered garden, grove, or park; and it may be noted that in the Septuagint Version of Genesis 2:8 this is the word used to translate the Hebrew "gan," which is rendered "garden" by our King James translators.
"Be thou faithful unto death" (Rev. 2:10)—Though this represents a literal rendering of the Greek, the thought of the original appears to be well suggested by Moffatt, who renders: "Be faithful, though you have to die for it;" while Weymouth (Fifth Edition) offers a similar rendering.
