Revelation 13:8

Shall worship him (proskunhsousin auton).
Future active of proskunew with the accusative here as some MSS. in 13:4 (to thrion), both constructions in this book.

Whose (ou--autou).
Redundant use of genitive autou (his) with ou (whose) as common in this book, and singular instead of plural wn with antecedent pantev (all, plural), thus calling attention to the responsibility of the individual in emperor-worship.

Hath not been written (ou gegraptai).
Perfect passive indicative of grapw, permanent state, stands written.

In the book of life of the Lamb (en twi bibliwi thv zwhv tou arniou).
See 3:5 for this phrase and the O.T. references. It occurs again in 17:8; 20:12,15; 21:27. "Here and in 21:27, the Divine Register is represented as belonging to 'the Lamb that was slain'" (Swete).

That hath been slain from the foundation of the world (tou espagmenou (for which see 5:6)
apo katabolhv kosmou). For the phrase apo katabolhv kosmou (not in the LXX) there are six other N.T. uses (Matthew 13:35 without kosmou; Matthew 25:34; Luke 11:50; Hebrews 4:3; 9:26; Revelation 17:8), and for pro katabolhv kosmou three (John 17:24; Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:20). It is doubtful here whether it is to be taken with tou espagmenou (cf. 1 Peter 1:20) or with gegraptai as in Revelation 17:8. Either makes sense, and here the most natural use is with espagmenou. At any rate the death of Christ lies in the purpose of God, as in John 3:16.
