Revelation of John 18:23

23 the light of a lamp
will never shine in you again;
and the voice of a groom and bride
will never be heard in you again. a
All this will happen
because your merchants
were the nobility of the earth,
because all the nations were deceived
by your sorcery
Ancient sorcery or witchcraft often used spells and drugs. Here the term may be non-literal, that is, Babylon drugged the nations with her beauty and power.
