Revelation 18:1 After these things, I saw another messenger, coming down out of heaven,having great authority; and, the earth, was illumined with his glory.
Babylon is fallen.
Revelation 18:2 And he cried out, with a mighty voice, sayingFallen! fallen! is Babylon the Great, and hath become a habitation of demons, and a prison of every impure spirit, and a prison of every impure and hated bird; Revelation 18:3 Because, by reason [of the wine] of the wrath of her lewdness, have all the nations fallen, and, the kings of the earth, with her, did commit lewdness, and, the merchants of the earth, by reason of the power of her wantonness, waxed rich.
The people of God commanded to depart out of her.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice out of heaven, sayingCome forth, my people, out of her,that ye may have no fellowship with her sins, and, of her plagues, that ye may not receive; Revelation 18:5 because her sins were joined together as far as heaven, and God hath remembered her unrighteous deeds. Revelation 18:6 Render ye unto her, as, she also, rendered, and double [the] double, according to her works,in the cup wherein she mixed, mix, unto her, double, Revelation 18:7 As much as she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give, unto her, torment and grief:because, in her heart, she saithI sit a Queen, and, widow, am I not, and, grief, in nowise shall I see! Revelation 18:8 Therefore, in one day, shall have come her plagues,death and grief and famine; and, with fire, shall she be burned up;because, mighty, is the [Lord] God who hath judged her.
The kings of the earth,
Revelation 18:9 And they shall weep and wail over hershall the kings of the earth who, with her, committed lewdness and waxed wanton,as soon as they see the smoke of her burning, Revelation 18:10 afar off, standing, because of their fear of her torment, sayingAlas! alas! the great city! Babylon, the mighty city! That, in one hour, hath come thy judgment.
with the merchants and mariners, lament over her.
Revelation 18:11 And, the merchants of the earth, weep and grieve over her, because, their cargo, no one, buyeth any more: Revelation 18:12 cargo of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and every article of ivory, and every article of wood most precious, and of copper, and of iron, and of marble, Revelation 18:13 and cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and unguent, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and [cargo] of horses, and of chariots, and of bodies, and lives of men. Revelation 18:14 And, the fruit of the coveting of thy soul, hath departed from thee, and, all things rich and bright, have perished from thee; and, no more, in anywise, for them, shall they seek. Revelation 18:15 The merchants of these things, who were enriched by her, afar off, shall stand, because of their fear of her torment, weeping, and grieving, Revelation 18:16 as they sayAlas! alas! the great city! She that was arrayed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stone, and pearl, Revelation 18:17 That, in one hour, hath been laid waste, such great wealth as this! And, every pilot, and every passenger, and mariners, and as many as, by the sea, carry on traffic, afar off did stand, Revelation 18:18 and they cried out, seeing the smoke of her burning, sayingWhat city is like unto the great city? Revelation 18:19 And they cast dust upon their heads, and cried out, weeping and grieving, sayingAlas! alas! the great city! Whereby were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by reason of her costliness,that, in one hour, she hath been laid waste!
The saints rejoice for the judgments of God upon her.
Revelation 18:20 Be glad over her, thou heaven! And ye saints, and ye apostles, and ye prophets! For that God hath exacted your vindication from her. Revelation 18:21 And one mighty messenger lifted a stone, as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, sayingThus, with main force, shall be cast down, Babylon the great city,and in nowise be found any more; Revelation 18:22 And sound of harp-singers, and musicians, and flute-players, and trumpeters,in nowise be heard in thee any more; and any artisan [of any art],in nowise be found in thee any more; and sound of millstone,in nowise be found in thee any more; Revelation 18:23 And light of lamp,in nowise shine in thee any more; and voice of bridegroom and bride,in nowise be heard in thee any more; because, thy merchants, were the great ones of the earth, because, with thy sorcery, were all the nations deceived: Revelation 18:24 And, in her, blood of prophets and saints, was found,and of all who had been slain upon the earth.
