[B-Greek] I'm going to give a message to my two witnesses. Rev. 11:3

With the style adopted by the author of the Apocalypse I would consider the KAI to be a reflection of the Semitic use of the waw.  I would render it "I will grant my two witnesses to prophesy . . ." or "I will allow my two witnesses to prophesy . . ."

Dear Listees,



In Rev. 11:3 John says, 



I'm going to give [??] to my two witnesses.



KAI DWSW TOIS DUSIN MARTUSIN MOU



Is there any way of being confident of what the implied direct object is
here? Most translations have "power" or "authority", but I can imagine "a
command", "a testimony", or, as I've rendered it, "a message". 



I'm going to give a message to my two witnesses. And they're going to
prophesy.



Any help would be appreciated.



Webb Mealy
