Dear friends,

  I had a question re: the 'trisagion' found in Rev 4:8. It appears 3 times, 
"holy, holy, holy". This comes from Isaiah 6:3 which in both the LXX and MT 
also have "holy" 3 times. However, there is another MS or MSS which have 
"hAGIOS" appearing 9 times at Rev 4:8. This does not appear as a textual 
variant, but seems to have been added for emphasis. Any thoughts on why this 
is the case? Many thanks.
