16saying, '1Woe, woe, 2the greatcity, she who 3was clothed in finelinen and purple and scarlet, and aadorned with gold and preciousbstones and pearls;
for in 4onehoursuchgreatwealth has been laid5waste!' And 6everyshipmaster and everycpassenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, 7stood at a distance,
and were 8crying out as they 9saw the smoke of her burning, saying, '10What city is like11the greatcity?'
"And they threw12dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, '13Woe, woe, the greatcity, in whichall who hadships at sea14became rich by her dwealth, for in 15onehour she has been laid16waste!'
"17Rejoiceover her, O heaven, and you esaints and 18apostles and prophets, because19God has fpronouncedjudgment for you against her."

"And 24the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you anylonger; and nocraftsman of anycraft will be found in you anylonger; and the 25sound of a mill will not be heard in you anylonger;
and the light of a lamp will not shine in you anylonger; and the 26voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you anylonger; for your 27merchants were the greatmen of the earth, becauseall the nations were deceived28by your sorcery.
"And in her was found the 29blood of prophets and of hsaints and of 30all who have been slain on the earth."
