The Woman on the Beast

1 One of the seven angels1 who had the seven bowls2 came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment3 of the great prostitute,4 who sits on many waters.5 2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries."6 3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit7 into a desert.8 There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet9 beast that was covered with blasphemous names10 and had seven heads and ten horns.11 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls.12 She held a golden cup13 in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.14 5 This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY15 BABYLON THE GREAT16 THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES17 AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints,18 the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.
