Revelation 18:1-24

1 After these things I saw another angel coming down out of the heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lighted with his glory. 2 And he cried with a strong voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and has become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every unclean spirit, and the den of every unclean and hateful bird; 3 because all nations have fallen of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich from the costliness of her delicacy. 4 And I heard another voice out of the heaven, saying, Come out from her, my people, in order that you may not partake of her sins, and in order that you may not receive of her plagues; 5 because her sins have mounted up to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Give unto her as indeed she has given, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she mixed, mix unto her double: 7 as to so many things as she has glorified herself, and lived wantonly, give unto her so much torment and sorrow. Because she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow; and I see no sorrow; 8 therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burnt up with fire: because God, the one judging her, is a mighty Lord. 9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication with her, and lived wantonly, will weep and wail over her, when they may see the smoke of her burning, 10 and standing afar off on account of the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, the great city, the strong city, Babylon! because in one hour thy judgment came. 11 And the merchants of the earth are weeping and mourning over her; because no one any longer buys their merchandise: 12 their merchandise of gold, and of silver, and of precious stones, and of pearls, and of fine linen; and of purple, and of silk, and of scarlet, and all thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel of most valuable wood, and of brass, and of iron, and of marble; 13 and cinnamon, and amomum, and incense, and myrrh, and libation, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and bodies and souls of men; 14 and the fruit of thy soul's inordinate desire has departed from thee; and all things bright and shining have perished from thee, and they will no longer find them. 15 The merchants of these things, who have grown rich from her, will stand a long way off on account of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning; 16 saying, Alas, alas, the great city, clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and gilded with gold, and precious stone, and pearl! because in one hour so great riches have come to desolation. 17 And every pilot, and every one sailing to the place, both the sailors and so many as traverse the sea, stood a long way off, 18 and they continued to cry seeing the smoke of her burning, saying, Who is like unto the great city? 19 And they continued to cast dust upon their heads, and cry, weeping and mourning, saying, Alas, alas, the great city, in which all those having ships in the sea became rich from her costliness! that in one hour she is made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, O heaven, and the saints, and the apostles, and the prophets; because God has judged your judgment from her. 21 And one strong angel lifted up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with a mighty fall shall Babylon the great city, be cast down, and can be found no more. 22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and flute-players, and trumpeters, shall no more be heard in thee; and every artificer of every art shall no more be found in thee; and the sound of the mill shall no longer be heard in thee; 23 and the light of a candle shall no more shine in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall no longer be heard in thee: because thy merchants were the great men of the earth; because by thy sorcery all nations were deceived, 24 truly in her is found the blood of prophets, and saints, and all those who have been slain upon the earth.

Revelation 17:1-18

1 And one of the seven angels having the seven bowls, came and spoke with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the judgment of the great harlot, the one sitting upon many waters: 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and those dwelling upon the earth were made drunk from the wine of her fornication. 3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, having the names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication: 5 and upon her forehead her name was written; Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother of Harlots And The Abominations of The Earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunken from the blood of the saints, and from the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and seeing her, I was astonished with great astonishment. 7 And the angel said to me, Wherefore wast thou astonished? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast which carries her, having the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast which you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss, and go into perdition: and those dwelling upon the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will be astonished, seeing the beast, because he was, and is not, and will be. 9 Here is a mind having wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, where the woman sits upon them, 10 and there are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, and another is not yet come; and when he may come it behooves him to remain a little while. 11 The beast which was, and is not, and the same is the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going into perdition. 12 And the ten horns which you saw, are ten kings, who live not yet received a kingdom; but they receive authority as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall conquer them, because he is the Lord of lords, and King of kings: and with him are the called, and the elect, and the faithful. 15 And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw and the beast, these will hate the harlot, and will make her desolate and naked, and eat her flesh, and burn her up with fire; 17 for God has given it into their hearts to do his mind, and to have one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is the great city, the one having dominion over the kings of the earth.

Revelation 21:8

8 But to the cowardly, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and the murderers, and the fornicators, and the sorcerers, and the idolaters, and all liars, shall be their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
