Revelation 18:1

Revelation 18:1

The Kings of the earth make this lament. The Merchants make it (Rev. Rev. 18:16+) : and the Mariners make it (Rev. Rev. 18:19+). In the first, the verbs introducing it are in the Future tense (Rev. Rev. 18:9+): in the second, in the Present (Rev. Rev. 18:11+), and in the third, the Past tense (Rev. Rev. 18:17+). It is as though a moving scene is passing before the eyes, while the interpreting angel explains it.1
