Revelation 19:1–10

Threefold Hallelujah Over Babylon’s Fall

19 After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitudev in heaven shouting:

“Hallelujah!w

Salvationx and glory and powery belong to our God,

He has condemned the great prostitutea

who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.

He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”b

“Hallelujah!c

The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”d

“Amen, Hallelujah!”h

both great and small!”j

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude,k like the roar of rushing watersl and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

“Hallelujah!m

For our Lord God Almightyn reigns.o

Let us rejoice and be glad

and give him glory!p

For the wedding of the Lambq has come,

and his brider has made herself ready.

Fine linen,s bright and clean,
