1Afterthesethings I sawanother1angel2comingdown from heaven, havinggreatauthority, and the earth was 3illumined with his glory.
And he cried out with a mightyvoice, saying, "a4Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She 5has become a dwellingplace of demons and a bprison of every6uncleanspirit, and a cprison of everyunclean and hatefulbird.
"For all the nationsdhave drunk of the 7wine of the epassion of her immorality, and 8the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the 9merchants of the earth have becomerich by the fwealth of her g10sensuality."
I heardanothervoice from heaven, saying, "11Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;
for her sins have h12piled up as high as heaven, and God has 13remembered her iniquities.
"14Pay her backeven as she has paid, and igiveback to her doubleaccording to her deeds; in the 15cupwhich she has mixed, mixtwice as much for her.
"16To the degree that she glorifiedherself and 17livedjsensuously, to the samedegreegive her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, '18I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will neverseemourning.'
"For thisreason19in oneday her plagues will come, kpestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be 20burned up with fire; for the LordGod who judges her 21is strong.
