Revelation 17:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 And 1he carried me away a2in the Spirit 3into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a 4scarlet beast, full of 5blasphemous names, having 6seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman 7was clothed in purple and scarlet, and badorned with gold and precious cstones and pearls, having in her hand 8a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, 5 and on her forehead a name was written, a 9mystery, "10BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF 11THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." 6 And I saw the woman drunk with 12the blood of the dsaints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered egreatly . 7 And the angel said to me, "Why fdo you wonder? I will tell you the 13mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the 14seven heads and the ten horns. 8 "15The beast that you saw 16was, and is not, and is about to 17come up out of the 18abyss and g19go to destruction. And 20those who dwell on the earth, 21whose name has not been written in the book of life 22from the foundation of the world, will 23wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 9 "24Here is the mind which has wisdom. The 25seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, 10 and they are seven 26kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. 11 "The beast which 27was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he 28goes to destruction. 12 "The 29ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast 30for one hour. 13 "These have 31one hpurpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.
