Revelation 18 ©
A mighty angel declareth the fall of Babylon. God's people commanded to depart out of her. Her judgment. The kings of the earth, and the merchants, and mariners, lament over her. The saints are excited to rejoice over her. A millstone cast into the sea denoteth her irrecoverable fall.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, dBabylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
And nthe kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived *deliciously with her, oshall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the psmoke of her burning,
tThe merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all 2*thyine wood, and all *manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
dAnd they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, ewherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! ffor in one hour is she made desolate.
jAnd the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and kthe sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
lAnd the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: mfor thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
