Revelation 18

18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from
 heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with
 his glory.
18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon
 the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of
 demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every
 unclean and hateful bird.
18:3 For all nations have drank of the wine of the wrath of her
 lewdness, and the kings of the earth have committed lewd deeds
 with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich
 through the abundance of her delicacies.
18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of
 her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that
 ye receive not of her plagues.
18:5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God hath
 remembered her iniquities.
18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double to her
 double according to her works: in the cup which she hath
 filled, fill to her double.
18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously,
 so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her
 heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and
 mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with
 fire: for strong [is] the Lord God who judgeth her.
18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed lewdness and
 lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for
 her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying,
 Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in
 one hour is thy judgment come.
18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over
 her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones,
 and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and
 scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all vessels of ivory, and all
 vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and
18:13 And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense,
 and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and
 sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after have departed
 from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly have
 departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
18:15 The merchants of these things who were made rich by her,
 shall stand afar off, for the fear of her torment, weeping and
18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed
 in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold,
 and precious stones, and pearls!
18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to naught. And
 every ship-master, and all the company in ships, and sailors,
 and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying,
 What [city is] like this great city!
18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and
 wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, in which were
 made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her
 opulence! for in one hour is she made desolate.
18:20 Rejoice over her [thou] heaven, and [ye] holy apostles and
 prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone,
 and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall
 that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be no more
18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers,
 and trumpeters, shall be no more heard in thee; and no
 artificer, of whatever craft [he be], shall be found any more
 in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be no more heard in
18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more in thee; and
 the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no
 more in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the
 earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints,
 and of all that were slain upon the earth.
