Revelation of John 18
Babylon Is Fallen1 After these things I saw another a angel b coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was c illumined with his glory. 2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying ▼
▼ Lit Babylon...fell, fell, e “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She f has become a dwelling place of demons and a ▼
▼ Or hauntprison of every h unclean spirit, and a ▼
▼ Or hauntprison of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 “For all the nations ▼
▼ Two early ancient mss read have fallen byhave drunk of the k wine of the ▼
▼ Lit wrathpassion of her immorality, and m the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the n merchants of the earth have become rich by the ▼
▼ Lit powerwealth of her ▼
▼ Or luxury, q sensuality.” 4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying r “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; 5 for her sins have ▼
▼ Lit joined together, t piled up as high as heaven, and God has u remembered her iniquities. 6 v “Pay her back even as she has paid, and ▼
▼ Lit double to hergive back to her double according to her deeds; in the x cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. 7 y “To the degree that she glorified herself and z lived ▼
▼ Or luxuriouslysensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘ ab I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ 8 “For this reason ac in one day her plagues will come, ▼
▼ Lit deathpestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be ae burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her af is strong.
Lament for Babylon9 “And ag the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and ah lived ▼
▼ Or luxuriouslysensuously with her, will aj weep and lament over her when they ak see the smoke of her burning, 10 al standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, ‘ am Woe, woe an the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in ao one hour your judgment has come.’ 11 “And the ap merchants of the earth aq weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12 cargoes of ar gold and silver and precious ▼
▼ Lit stonestones 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 ▼
▼ Or brassbronze and iron and marble, 13 and cinnamon and ▼
▼ Gr amomonspice 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 ▼
▼ Lit bodiesslaves and ▼
▼ Lit souls of people (Gr anthropoi), ax human lives. 14 “The fruit ▼
▼ Lit of your soul’s desireyou 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 az merchants of ba these things, who became rich from her, will bb stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, 16 saying, ‘ bc Woe, woe bd the great city, she who be was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and ▼
▼ Lit gildedadorned with gold and precious ▼
▼ Lit stone and pearlstones and pearls; 17 for in bh one hour such great wealth has been laid bi waste!’ And bj every shipmaster and every ▼
▼ Lit one who sails to a placepassenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, bl stood at a distance, 18 and were bm crying out as they bn saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘ bo What city is like bp the great city?’ 19 “And they threw bq dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘ br Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea bs became rich by her ▼
▼ Lit costlinesswealth, for in bu one hour she has been laid bv waste!’ 20 bw “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints and by apostles and prophets, because bz God has ▼
▼ Lit judged your judgment of herpronounced judgment for you against her.” 21 Then ▼
▼ Lit onea cc strong angel cd took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon ce the great city, be thrown down with violence, and cf will not be found any longer. 22 “And cg the 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 ch sound 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 ci voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your cj merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived ck by your sorcery. 24 “And in her was found the cl blood of prophets and of ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints and of cn all who have been slain on the earth.”
