John, Why do you think that this Hebrew word is connected to the
Revelation? It is obvious that the Greek term is used there, but why
do you think the Hebrew term XTK is used in Revelation 20? There is no
Hebrew in the Revelation. The rest of your message (about the Greek
term) is all right, but I cannot understand your connection of these
two terms.

The Hebrew translation that I have of the NT (from the Bible Society
in Israel) has this for Revelation 20:13:

הים נתן את המתים אשר בו, מות ושאול נתנו את מתיהם, ואיש איש נשפטו לפי מעשיהם
"The sea gave the dead that [were] in it, Death and She'ol gave their
dead, and every man was judged (נשפטו) according to their works."

The word used for "be judged" in that verse, according to this
translation, is N$P+, the niphal form of $P+, which is the regular
word for "judge" in Hebrew. What are you using that suggests that XTK
is the better word for this verse?
