I have a provisional translation as:
And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write:
This is what the one who has the sharp, double-edge sword is saying,
"I know where you are living, where Satan's throne is.
And you are clinging to my name and haven't denied faith in me
Even in the days of Antipas, my faithul witness, who was killed in your
presence, where Satan is living."
The phrase 'hO PISTOS MOU' bothers me. My propensity was to handle it
as as a dative form, but I
noticed the NAU translates it as as 'My Faith'. Is this correctly seen
as an objective genitive? If so, then
what is the rationale for the NAU translators handling it as they do?
