1 Peter 5:13

13 The elect church which is in Babel, asketh for your peace, and Markos my son.

Revelation 18:1-24

1 AFTER these I saw another angel descending from heaven, having great power; and the earth brightened with his glory. 2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen hath Babel the Great, and hath become a den of demons, and the keep of every unclean spirit, and the keep of every unclean and abominable bird, and the keep of every unclean and abominable beast of prey. 3 For that of the wine of her rage have all nations drunk; and the kings of the earth have with her committed fornication, and the merchants of the earth from the power of her luxuriance have become rich. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that you be not partakers of her sins, and lest of her plagues you receive. 5 For her sins have reached [Lit. adhered.] unto heaven, and Aloha hath remembered her iniquity. 6 Deal with her as she hath dealt with you, and double to her according to her works. In the cup which she mingled mingle to her double. 7 How much she hath pleased herself to be wanton, all this give her suffering and sorrow. For she said in her heart, I sit the queen, and am not a widow, and sorrow I see not. 8 Therefore in one day will come these her plagues, death and sorrow and hunger; and in fire she will burn, for mighty is the Lord God who judgeth her. 9 And the kings of the earth who with her have committed fornication, and have been wanton, shall weep and lament and wail over her, when they see the smoke of her burning; 10 standing from far, for fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, that great city Babel, that mighty city! For in one hour hath come thy judgment. 11 And the merchants of the earth shall be sorrowful over her, because no man buyeth of their burden. 12 No more (shall there be in thee) the burden of gold, and of silver and of precious stones, and of pearls; and of fine linen, and of purple, and of silk and scarlet; and of every aromatic wood, and every vessel of elephant's-tooth, and every vessel of wood of great price, and of brass and of iron and of marble; 13 and cinnamon and omomun* and perfumes, and ointment and frankincense and wine and oil, and fine meal, and wheat, and cattle, and slaves, and horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. [* Spikenard. Gr. text, - which the Syr. retains untranslated.] 14 And the fruit of the desire of thy soul hath gone from thee, and all those things which are delicious and brilliant have perished from thee, and the merchants of these things will find them no more. 15 They who were made rich by her from afar will stand for fear of her torment, and wail and be sorrowful, 16 saying, Woe, woe, that great city, which was arrayed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and golded with gold, and (adorned) with precious stones and pearls; for in one hour hath been destroyed wealth like this. 17 And every captain and every pilot who navigateth to the place, and the mariners, and all who serve on the sea, stood from afar, 18 and cried, while beholding the smoke of her burning, saying, What is like to this great city! 19 And they cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and lamenting, and saying, Woe, woe, that great city, in which were made rich all they who have ships in the sea, from the preciousness of her! For in one hour she becometh desolate! 20 Rejoice over her, heaven, and the angels and apostles and prophets, because Aloha hath judged your judgment upon her. 21 And an angel took a stone, as a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with force is cast down Babel the great city, and to be found no more. 22 And the voice of harpers, and of musicians, and of singers, and of trumpeters, shall be heard in thee no more. And no artificer, nor art, shall more be found in thee. 23 And the light of a lamp shall be seen in thee no more. And the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard in thee no more. For thy merchants were the great ones of the earth; for by thy sorcery were all nations seduced. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all those who had been killed upon the earth.

Revelation 16:19

19 And the great city became three parts, and the city of the nations fell; and Babel the great was remembered before Aloha, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.

Revelation 17:1-18

1 AND one of the seven angels who had the seven vials came and spake with me, saying, Come; I will show thee the judgment of the great harlot, which sitteth upon many waters: 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and they who dwell in the earth have been made drunk by the wine of her fornication. 3 And he led me into the desert, in the spirit; and I saw a woman sitting on a beast of prey which was red,[Sumoqo.] full of names of blasphemy, (and) having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet,[Zachurith.] and golden with gold [Madhabo b'dhabo.] and precious stones and pearls; having a cup of gold in her hand, full of pollutions and uncleanness of her fornications [by which she hath polluted] the earth. 5 And upon her forehead the name was written, Mystery: Babel the Great, the Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jeshu; and I wondered, when I saw, with great wonder. 7 And the angel said to me, Why wonderest thou? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast of prey which beareth her, which hath the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast of prey which thou seest, was, and is not; and will ascend from the abyss, and go into perdition: and they who dwell on the earth will admire, they whose name is not written in the book of life from the foundations of the world, while they see the beast of prey, who was, and is not, and draweth nigh. 9 Here is the mind of him who hath wisdom: The seven heads are seven hills where the woman sitteth upon them. 10 And the kings are seven; five have fallen, one is, the other not yet hath come: and when he hath come, a little while it behoveth him to abide. 11 And the beast of prey which was and is not, this is an Eighth, and is of the Seven, and is unto perdition. 12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, the men who kingdom not yet have received; but authority as kings one hour receive with the beast of prey. 13 They have one will, and their power and their authority unto the beast of prey they will give. 14 They with the Lamb will make war, and the Lamb will overcome them; for he is the Lord of lords, and the King of kings, and they who are with him (are) the called and the chosen and the faithful. 15 And he said to me, The waters which thou sawest where the harlot is sitting, are peoples, and assemblages, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast of prey, will hate the harlot, and make her desolate and naked; and her flesh they will eat, and herself burn with fire. 17 For Aloha hath ingiven it to their hands that they might do his will, and perform one will to give their kingdom to the wild beast, until shall be fulfilled the words of Aloha. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is the great city which hath kingdom over the kings of the earth.
