The Doom of Babylon

1 Then R793 one of the seven R794 angels who had the seven R795 bowls came and spoke with me, saying, "Come here, I will show you the R796 judgment of the great R797 harlot who sits R798 on many waters, 2 with whom the R799 kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those R800 who dwell on the earth were made R801 drunk with the wine of her immorality." 3 And he R802 carried me away in R803 F184 the Spirit into R804 a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet R805 beast, full of blasphemous R806 names, having seven R807 heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was R808 clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned F185 with gold and precious stones F186 and pearls, having in her hand a R809 gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, 5 and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, R810 "BABYLON R811 THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE R812 ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." 6 And I saw the woman drunk with the R813 blood of the saints, F187 and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. F188 7 And the angel said to me, "Why do F189 you wonder? I will tell you the mystery R814 of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven R815 heads and the ten horns.

8 "The R816 beast that you saw was, R817 and is not, and is about to come R818 up out of the abyss R819 and go R820 F190 to destruction. And those R821 who dwell on the earth, whose R822 name has not been written in the book of life from R823 the foundation of the world, will wonder R824 when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 9 "Here R825 is the mind which has wisdom. The seven R826 heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, 10 and they are seven kings; R827 five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. 11 "The beast which was R828 and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes R829 to destruction. 12 "The ten R830 horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for R831 one hour. 13 "These have one R832 purpose, F191 and they give their power and authority to the beast.

Victory for the Lamb

14 "These will wage war R833 against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome R834 them, because He is Lord R835 of lords and King R835 of kings, and those R836 who are with Him are the called R837 and chosen and faithful."

15 And he said to me, "The waters R838 which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples R839 and multitudes and nations and tongues. 16 "And the ten R840 horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate R841 and naked, R842 and will eat R843 her flesh and will burn R844 her up with fire. 17 "For God R845 has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose F192 by F193 having R846 a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words R847 of God will be fulfilled. 18 "The woman whom you saw is the R848 great city, which reigns F194 over the kings of the earth."
