Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not.
The noise of a whip and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the prancing horses and of the jumping chariots!
The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear, and there is a multitude of slain and a great number of carcasses. And there is no end of their corpses--they stumble upon their corpses"
because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavored harlot, the mistress of witchcraft, that selleth nations through her whoredom, and families through her witchcraft.
