Revelation of John 17
The Doom of Babylon1 a Then one of the b seven angels who had the c seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you d the judgment of the e great harlot who f sits on many waters, 2 with whom g the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and h those who dwell on the earth were i made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” 3 And j he carried me away ▼
▼ Or in spirit, l in the Spirit m into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a n scarlet beast, full of o blasphemous names, having p seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman q was clothed in purple and scarlet, and ▼
▼ Lit gildedadorned with gold and precious ▼
▼ Lit stonestones and pearls, having in her hand t a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, 5 and on her forehead a name was written, a u mystery v “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF w THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” 6 And I saw the woman drunk with x the blood of the ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered ▼
▼ Lit with great wondergreatly. 7 And the angel said to me, “Why ▼
▼ Lit have you wondereddo you wonder? I will tell you the ab mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the ac seven heads and the ten horns. 8 ad “The beast that you saw ae was, and is not, and is about to af come up out of the ag abyss and ▼
▼ One early ms reads is going, ai go to destruction. And aj those who dwell on the earth ak whose name has not been written in the book of life al from the foundation of the world, will am wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 9 an “Here is the mind which has wisdom. The ao seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, 10 and they are seven ap kings; 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 aq was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he ar goes to destruction. 12 “The as ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast at for one hour. 13 “These have au one ▼
▼ Or mindpurpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.
Victory for the Lamb14 “These will wage aw war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will ax overcome them, because He is ay Lord of lords and az King of kings, and ba those who are with Him are the bb called and chosen and faithful.” 15 And he said to me, “The bc waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are bd peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. 16 “And the be ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her bf desolate and bg naked, and will bh eat her flesh and will bi burn her up with fire. 17 “For bj God has put it in their hearts to execute His ▼
▼ Or mindpurpose ▼
▼ Lit even to do one mind and to giveby bm having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the bn words of God will be fulfilled. 18 “The woman whom you saw is bo the great city, which ▼
▼ Lit has a kingdomreigns over the kings of the earth.”
