Bible: Rev 18:20-24

18:20 (Rejoice over her, O heaven,

and you saints and apostles and prophets,

for God has pronounced judgment 1  against her on your behalf!) 2 

18:21 Then 3  one powerful angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone, threw it into the sea, and said,

With this kind of sudden violent force 4 

Babylon the great city will be thrown down 5 

and it will never be found again!

18:22 And the sound of the harpists, musicians,

flute players, and trumpeters

will never be heard in you 6  again.

No 7  craftsman 8  who practices any trade

will ever be found in you again;

the noise of a mill 9  will never be heard in you again.

18:23 Even the light from a lamp

will never shine in you again!

The voices of the bridegroom and his bride

will never be heard in you again.

For your merchants were the tycoons of the world,

because all the nations 10  were deceived by your magic spells! 11 

18:24 The 12  blood of the saints and prophets was found in her, 13 

along with the blood 14  of all those who had been killed on the earth.”
