Revelation 1:8 reads:
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (ESV)
Would Jesus have spoken “Alpha and Omega,” the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, or “Alef and Tav,” the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet?

KJV has for Revelation 13:10
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that
killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the
patience and the faith of the saints.
The passage has a justice/retribution
moral similar to that of Mt 26:52.
In NIV the moral is instead about suffering patiently and
accepting one’s fate.
If anyone is to go into captivity,
into captivity they will go.
If anyone is to be killed with the sword,
with the sword they will be killed.
Two other translations (Vulgate and NEG1979) have a “mixed”
meaning: capturing has the patience reading, and killing has
the retributive reading.
Qui in captivitatem in captivitatem vadit qui in gladio occiderit
oportet eum gladio occidi hic est patientia et fidessanctorum
Si quelqu’un est destiné à la captivité, il ira en captivité; si
quelqu’un tue par l’épée, il faut qu’il soit tué par l’épée. C’est ici
la persévérance et la foi des saints.
Is the original Greek ambiguous about the proper meaning, or are
the translators just taking liberties?
Thoughout Revelation, it is said that “they [the saints] will reign.”
Blessed and holy is the one who takes part in the first resurrection.
The second death has no power over them, but they will be priest…
