Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Woe to the bloody city, all full of lies and booty--no end to the plunder! 1 Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims!
2 The crack of whip, and rumble of wheel, galloping horse and bounding chariot! 2 The crack of whips, the clatter of wheels, galloping horses and jolting chariots!
3 Horsemen charging, flashing sword and glittering spear, hosts of slain, heaps of corpses, dead bodies without end--they stumble over the bodies! 3 Charging cavalry, flashing swords and glittering spears! Many casualties, piles of dead, bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses--
4 And all for the countless harlotries of the harlot, graceful and of deadly charms, who betrays nations with her harlotries, and peoples with her charms. 4 all because of the wanton lust of a harlot, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft.
