Revelation 10:8

Again speaking and saying (palin lalousan kai legousan). Present active predicate participles feminine accusative singular agreeing with hn (object of hkousa), not with pwnh (nominative) as most of the cursives have it (lalousa kai legousa). Ordinarily it would be elalei kai elegen. See Jeremiah 4:1 for like idiom. This is the voice mentioned in verse Jeremiah 10:4 . No great distinction is to be made here between lalew and legw. Go, take (Hupage labe). Present active imperative of upagw and second aorist active imperative of lambanw. The use of upage (exclamation like ide) is common in N.T. ( Matthew 5:24 ; Matthew 8:4 ; Matthew 19:21 ; John 4:16 ; John 9:7 ). Charles calls it a Hebraism ( Revelation 16:1 ). Note the repeated article here (to) referring to the open book in the hand of the angel (verse Revelation 2 ), only here biblion is used, not the diminutive of biblaridion of verses Rev 2 9 10 .
