Which have received no kingdom as yet (oitine basileian oupw elabon). Second aorist (proleptic and prophetic) active indicative of lambanw. The heads are emperors and the horns are kings (both called basilei). As kings (w basilei). Compared to kings (see w in Acts 1:10 ; Acts 4:6 ; Acts 9:7 ; Acts 13:3 ; Acts 14:3 ; Acts 16:21 ) without identification with the emperors, though succeeding them with "quasi-imperial powers" with the beast. For one hour (mian wran). Accusative of extent of time, and that a brief time ( Acts 18:10 Acts 18:16 Acts 18:19 ) in comparison with the beast ( Acts 13:2 ).
