Revelation 18:1–8

Babylon Is Fallen

1 After these things I saw another aangel bcoming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was cillumined with his glory.

2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “1aFallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She bhas become a dwelling place of demons and a 2prison of every cunclean spirit, and a 2prison of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 “For all the nations 1have drunk of the awine of the 2passion of her immorality, and bthe kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the cmerchants of the earth have become rich by the 3wealth of her 4dsensuality.”

4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “aCome out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;

5 for her sins have 1apiled up as high as heaven, and God has bremembered her iniquities.

6 aPay her back even as she has paid, and 1give back to her double according to her deeds; in the bcup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.

7 aTo the degree that she glorified herself and blived 1sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘cI sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’

8 “For this reason ain one day her plagues will come, 1pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be bburned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her cis strong.
