After this vision and announcement I heard what sounded like a great many people in heaven saying: "Hallelujah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our God,
because his judgments are true and right. He has punished the prostitute who made the earth evil with her sexual sin. He has paid her back for the death of his servants."
Again they said: "Hallelujah! She is burning, and her smoke will rise forever and ever."
Then the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures bowed down and worshiped God, who sits on the throne. They said: "Amen, Hallelujah!"
Then a voice came from the throne, saying: "Praise our God, all you who serve him and all you who honor him, both small and great!"
