11 “And the amerchants of the earth bweep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more—

12 cargoes of agold and silver and precious 1stones 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 2bronze and iron and marble,

13 and cinnamon and 1spice 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 2slaves and 3ahuman lives.

14 “The fruit 1you 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 amerchants of bthese things, who became rich from her, will cstand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,

16 saying, ‘aWoe, woe, bthe great city, she who cwas clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and 1adorned with gold and precious 2stones and pearls;

17 for in aone hour such great wealth has been laid bwaste!’ And cevery shipmaster and every 1passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, astood at a distance,

18 and were acrying out as they bsaw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘cWhat city is like dthe great city?’

19 “And they threw adust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘bWoe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea cbecame rich by her 1wealth, for in bone hour she has been laid dwaste!’

20 “aRejoice over her, O heaven, and you 1saints and bapostles and prophets, because cGod has 2pronounced judgment for you against her.”

21 Then 1a astrong angel btook up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, cthe great city, be thrown down with violence, and dwill not be found any longer.

22 “And athe 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 bsound 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 avoice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your bmerchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived cby your sorcery.

24 “And in her was found the ablood of prophets and of 1saints and of ball who have been slain on the earth.”
