Revelation of John 17

CHAPTER 17

The Great Harlot

And came one of the seven angels of the ones having the seven bowls, and he spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show to you the judgment of the [2harlot 1great], the one sitting upon the [2waters 1many], with whom [5committed harlotry 1the 2kings 3of the 4earth], and [5were intoxicated 1the ones 2dwelling on 3the 4earth] of the wine of her harlotry. And he carried me away into the wilderness in spirit. And I saw a woman sitting upon [2beast 1a scarlet], being full of names of blasphemy, having [2heads 1seven] and [2horns 1ten]. And the woman was wearing purple and scarlet, gilded with gold, and [2stone 1precious] and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the uncleanlinesses of her harlotry. And upon her forehead a name being written, Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of the harlots and of the abominations of the earth. And I saw the woman being intoxicated of the blood of the holy ones, and of the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And I marveled, having seen her, [2wonder 1with great]. And [3said 4to me 1the 2angel], Why did you marvel? I will tell to you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast, of the one bearing her, of the one having the seven heads and the ten horns; even the beast which you saw was, and is not, and is about to ascend from out of the abyss, and [2into 3destruction 1to go away]. And [6shall marvel 1the ones 2dwelling 3upon 4the 5earth], whose [2are not 3written 1names] upon the scroll of the life from the founding of the world, seeing the beast that was, and is not, and shall be at hand. Here is the mind of the one having wisdom. The seven heads [2seven 3mountains 1are] where the woman sits upon them. 10 And [3kings 2seven 1there are] -- the five fallen, the one is, the other not yet is come; and whenever he should come, [4a little 1he 2must 3remain]. 11 And the beast which was, and is not, even he is eighth, and [2from out of 3the 4seven 1he is], and [2unto 3destruction 1he goes]. 12 And the ten horns which you saw [2ten 3kings 1are], ones which [3a kingdom 1not yet 2received], but [2authority 3as 4kings 5one 6hour 1receive] with the beast. 13 These [2one 3opinion 1have], and [2the 3power 4and 5their authority 6to the 7beast 1they give].

The Lamb

14 These [2against 3the 4lamb 1shall wage war], and the lamb will overcome them, for [2Lord 3of lords 1he is] and king of kings; and the ones with him are called, and chosen, and trustworthy. 15 And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, [2peoples 3and 4multitudes 1are], and nations, and languages. 16 And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall detest the harlot, and [3being made desolate 1they shall cause 2her], and [3naked 1shall make 2her], and [2her flesh 1shall devour], and shall incinerate her by fire. 17  For God gave to their hearts to do his design, and to do [2design 1one], and to give their kingdom to the beast, until [4shall be fulfilled 1the 2words 3of God]. 18 And the woman whom you saw is the [2city 1great], the one having kingship over the kings of the earth.
