2 And He cried with a strong voice, saying, 1aFallen, fallen is Babylon the Great! And she has become a bdwelling place of demons and a 2hold of every cunclean spirit and a 2hold of every unclean and hateful bird;
3 For all the nations 1have 2adrunk of the wine of the fury of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have bcommitted fornication with her, and the cmerchants of the earth have become drich by the power of her eluxury.
7 As much as she has aglorified herself and lived bluxuriously, as much torment and sorrow give to her; for she says in her heart, I sit a cqueen, and I am not a dwidow, and I shall by no means see sorrow.
11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargo anymore:
12 1Cargo of gold and silver and precious stone and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of 2thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel of most precious wood and brass and iron and marble,
14 And the ripe fruits of your soul’s lust have gone away from you, and all the sumptuous and splendid things have perished from you; and menwill find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand afar off because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,
16 Saying, Woe, woe, the great city, which was aclothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and gilded with gold and precious stone and pearl;
17 For in one hour such great wealth has become adesolate! And every ship captain and everyone sailing to a place and sailors and all who work on the sea stood afar off
18 And cried out, seeing the asmoke of her burning, saying, What city is like the great city?
19 And they cast dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, by which all those who have ships on the sea became rich from her 1wealth, for in 2one hour she has become desolate!
