Bible: Revelation 17:3-6

17:3 So 1  he carried me away in the Spirit 2  to a wilderness, 3  and there 4  I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 17:4 Now 5  the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet clothing, 6  and adorned with gold, 7  precious stones, and pearls. She held 8  in her hand a golden cup filled with detestable things and unclean things from her sexual immorality. 9  17:5 On 10  her forehead was written a name, a mystery: 11  “Babylon the Great, the Mother of prostitutes and of the detestable things of the earth.” 17:6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of those who testified to Jesus. 12  I 13  was greatly astounded 14  when I saw her.
