Revelation 18:1 After these things I saw another angel descending out of the heaven, having great authority: and the earth was lightened with his glory.
Babylon is fallen.
Revelation 18:2 And he cried with a strong voice, saying, Great Babylon has fallen, has fallen, and has become the habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hated bird; Revelation 18:3 because all the nations have drunk of the wine of the fury of her fornication; and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have been enriched through the might of her luxury.
The people of God commanded to depart out of her.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice out of the heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye have not fellowship in her sins, and that ye do not receive of her plagues: Revelation 18:5 for her sins have been heaped on one another up to the heaven, and God has remembered her unrighteousnesses. Revelation 18:6 Recompense her even as she has recompensed; and double [to her] double, according to her works. In the cup which she has mixed, mix to her double. Revelation 18:7 So much as she has glorified herself and lived luxuriously, so much torment and grief give to her. Because she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and I am not a widow; and I shall in no wise see grief: Revelation 18:8 for this reason in one day shall her plagues come, death and grief and famine, and she shall be burnt with fire; for strong [is the] Lord God who has judged her.
The kings of the earth,
Revelation 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication, and lived luxuriously with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they see the smoke of her burning, Revelation 18:10 standing afar off, through fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour thy judgment is come.
with the merchants and mariners, lament over her.
Revelation 18:11 And the merchants of the earth weep and grieve over her, because no one buys their lading any more; Revelation 18:12 lading of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pearl, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet dye, and all thyine wood, and every article in ivory, and every article in most precious wood, and in brass, and in iron, and in marble, Revelation 18:13 and cinnamon, and amomum, and incense, and unguent, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and of horses, and of chariots, and of bodies, and souls of men. Revelation 18:14 And the ripe fruits which were the lust of thy soul have departed from thee, and all fair and splendid things have perished from thee, and they shall not find them any more at all. Revelation 18:15 The merchants of these things, who had been enriched through her, shall stand afar off through fear of her torment, weeping and grieving, Revelation 18:16 saying, Woe, woe, the great city, which [was] clothed with fine linen and purple and scarlet, and had ornaments of gold and precious stones and pearls! Revelation 18:17 for in one hour so great riches has been made desolate. And every steersman, and every one who sailed to any place, and sailors, and all who exercise their calling on the sea, stood afar off, Revelation 18:18 and cried, seeing the smoke of her burning, saying, What [city] is like to the great city? Revelation 18:19 and cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and grieving, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were enriched through her costliness! for in one hour she has been made desolate.
The saints rejoice for the judgments of God upon her.
Revelation 18:20 Rejoice over her, heaven, and [ye] saints and apostles and prophets; for God has judged your judgment upon her. Revelation 18:21 And a strong angel took up a stone, as a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall Babylon the great city be cast down, and shall be found no more at all; Revelation 18:22 and voice of harp-singers and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters shall not be heard any more at all in thee, and no artificer of any art shall be found any more at all in thee, and voice of millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee, Revelation 18:23 and light of lamp shall shine no more at all in thee, and voice of bridegroom and bride shall be heard no more at all in thee; for thy merchants were the great ones of the earth; for by thy sorcery have all the nations been deceived. Revelation 18:24 And in her was found [the] blood of prophets and saints, and of all the slain upon the earth.
