Revelation 18:1 And after that, I sawe another Angell come from heauen, hauyng gret power, and the erthe was lyghtened wyth hys bryghtnes.
Babylon is fallen.
Revelation 18:2 And he cryed myghtely with a stronge voyce, sayinge: Great Babylon is fallen, is fallen, and is become the inhabitacion of deuyls, and the holde of all fowle spretes, and a cage of all vncleane and hatefull byrdes, Revelation 18:3 for all nacyons haue dronken of the wyne of the wrath of her fornicacion. And the kynges of the earth haue commytted fornicacion wyth her, and the merchauntes of the erth are wexed ryche of the aboundaunce of her pleasures.
The people of God commanded to depart out of her.
Revelation 18:4 And I herde another voyce from heauen saye, come awaye from her my people, þt ye be not partakers of her synnes, and þt ye receaue not of her plages. Revelation 18:5 For her synnes are gone vp to heauen, & God hath remembred her wickednes. Revelation 18:6 Rewarde her euen as she rewarded you, & geue her double accordyng to her workes. And powre in double to her in, the same cuppe which she filled vnto you. Revelation 18:7 And as moche as she glorifyed her selfe and liued wantanly, so moch powre ye in for her of punysshement and sorowe, for she sayde in her selfe: I syt beynge a quene, & am no wyddowe, and shall se no sorowe. Revelation 18:8 Therfore shal her plages come in one daye, deeth, & sorowe, and honger, & she shalbe brent with fyre: for stronge is þe Lorde God which shal iudge her.
The kings of the earth,
Revelation 18:9 And the kynges of the erth shall bewepe her and wayle ouer her, which haue commytted fornicacion with her, & haue lyued wantanly with her, when they shall se the smoke of her burnyng, Revelation 18:10 & shall stande a farre of, for feare of her punishement, sayinge. Alas, Alas, that gret cytie Babylon, þe myghtye citie: for at one hour is thy iudgement come.
with the merchants and mariners, lament over her.
Revelation 18:11 And the marchauntes of the erth shal wepe and wayle in them selues, for no man wyll bye theyr ware eny more, Revelation 18:12 the ware of gold and siluer, & precious stones, nether of pearle, and raynes, and purple, and skarlet, and all thynne wodde, and all maner vessels of yuery, & all maner vessels of most precious wodde, & of brasse & yron, Revelation 18:13 & synamom, and odours, & oyntmentes, and franckinsence, & wyne, and oyle, and fyne floure, and wheate, beastes, and shepe, and horsses, and charetes, and bodyes, and soules of men. Revelation 18:14 And þe apples that thy soule lusted after, are departed from the. And all thinges which were deyntie, and had in price, are departed from the, & thou shalt fynde them nomore. Revelation 18:15 The marchauntes of these thynges whyche were wexed ryche, shall stande a farre of from hir, for feare of þe punyshement of her, wepynge and waylynge, Revelation 18:16 & saying: Alas, Alas, that gret cytie, þt was clothed in raynes and purple, and scarlet, and decked with golde, and precious stones, & pearles: Revelation 18:17 for at one houre so great ryches is come to nought. And euery shyppe gouerner, and all they that occupied shyppes, and shypmen which worke in the see, stode a farre of, Revelation 18:18 and cryed, when they sawe the smoke of her burnyng, saying: what cytie is lyke vnto this gret citie? Revelation 18:19 And they cast dust on theyr heddes, and cryed wepyng, & waylyng, & sayde: Alas, Alas, that great cytie, wherin were made riche all that had shippes in þe see, by the reason of her costlynes, for at one houre is she made desolate.
The saints rejoice for the judgments of God upon her.
Revelation 18:20 Reioyce ouer her thou heauen, and ye holy Apostles and Prophetes: for God hath geuen your iudgement on her. Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angell toke vp a stone lyke a gret milstone and cast it into þe see, saying: with such vyolence shall that gret citie Babylon be cast, & shalbe founde no more. Revelation 18:22 And þe voyce of harpers, and musycions, & of pypers, and trompetters shalbe herde no more in the: and no craftes man, of whatsoeuer craft he be, shalbe founde eny more in the. And the sounde of a myll shalbe herde no more in the, Revelation 18:23 and the voyce of the brydegrom and of the bryde, shalbe herd no more in þe, for thy marchauntes were the gret men of þe erth. And wt thyne inchauntment were deceaued al nacions: Revelation 18:24 & in her was founde the bloude of the Prophetes, & of the saynctes, & of all þt were slayne vpon þe erth.
