Babylon Is Fallen

1 After these things I saw another angel R849 coming R850 down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined R851 with his glory. 2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, R852 F195 fallen is Babylon the great! She has R853 become a dwelling place of demons and a prison F196 of every unclean R854 spirit, and a prison F196 of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 "For all the nations have F197 drunk of the wine R855 of the passion F198 of her immorality, and the R856 kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants R857 of the earth have become rich by the wealth F199 of her sensuality." R858 F200

4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come R859 out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; 5 for her sins have piled R860 F201 up as high as heaven, and God has remembered R861 her iniquities. 6 "Pay R862 her back even as she has paid, and give F202 back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup R863 which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. 7 "To R864 the degree that she glorified herself and lived R865 sensuously, F203 to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, `I R866 SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning.' 8 "For this reason in R867 one day her plagues will come, pestilence F204 and mourning and famine, and she will be burned R868 up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is R869 strong.

Lament for Babylon

9 "And the R870 kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived R871 sensuously F205 with her, will weep R872 and lament over her when they see R873 the smoke of her burning, 10 standing R874 at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, `Woe, R875 woe, the R876 great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one R877 hour your judgment has come.'

11 "And the merchants R878 of the earth weep R879 and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more-- 12 cargoes of gold R880 and silver and precious stones F206 and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze F207 and iron and marble, 13 and cinnamon and spice F208 and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves F209 and human R881 F210 lives. 14 "The fruit you F211 long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. 15 "The merchants R882 of these R883 things, who became rich from her, will stand R884 at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, 16 saying, `Woe, R885 woe, the R886 great city, she who was R887 clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned F212 with gold and precious stones F213 and pearls; 17 for in one R888 hour such great wealth has been laid waste!' R889 And every R890 shipmaster and every passenger F214 and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood R888 at a distance, 18 and were crying R891 out as they saw R892 the smoke of her burning, saying, `What R893 city is like the R894 great city?' 19 "And they threw dust R895 on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, `Woe, R896 woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became R897 rich by her wealth, F215 for in one R896 hour she has been laid waste!' R898 20 "Rejoice R899 over her, O heaven, and you saints F216 and apostles R900 and prophets, because God R901 has pronounced F217 judgment for you against her."

21 Then a F218 strong R902 angel took R903 up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "So will Babylon, the R904 great city, be thrown down with violence, and will R905 not be found any longer. 22 "And the R906 sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound R907 of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; 23 and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice R908 of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants R909 were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by R910 your sorcery. 24 "And in her was found the blood R911 of prophets and of saints F219 and of all R912 who have been slain on the earth."
