16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and maked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled, And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. chapter XVIII. The faul of Babylon. AN. after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, haying great pow: er; and the earth was lightened with his glory: - - - - 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voige oft Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of dev: ls, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bir 3 For all nations have drunk 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 are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her, double, according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived dcliciously, sø much torment and sorrow f. her: for she saith in her eart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8. Therefore shall her plagues come in one, day, death, and mourning, *ine: and she

shall be utterly burned , with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. d the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her shall, bewail her, and lament for her, when they hail see the smoke of her burning, 10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying., Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that Fo city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. 11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12, The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and, fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scar: let, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 13, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and, frankin: cense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and char: iots, and slaves, and souls

men. 14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after, are jo: thee, and all things which were dainty, and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 15 The , merchants of these things, which were made rich § her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing. 16 And saying, Alas, alas, that # *f; that was clothed in ne linen, and purple, and scar. let, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. ...And every shipmaster, and all, the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off. 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

The rejoicing 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city; wherein were made rreh all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. . . 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. . 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone, like a great millstone, and cast, it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence, shall that #: city Babylon be thrown wn, and shall be found no more at all. 22, And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft lie be, shall be found any more in , thee; and the sqund of a millstone, shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23, And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived, 34 And in her was found the blogd of prophets, and of saints, and of asl that were slain upon the earth.

And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God; , for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. 11, And I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse; an he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew. but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his pame is called The Word of

This is the irst resurrection. 6 Blessed, and holy is he that hath part in, the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but,they shall be priests of God and of Christ, shall reign with him a thousand years. 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them to: gether to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloyed city; and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured

them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was, cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it

2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that, old serpent, which is the devil, and Satan, and bound

This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written, in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. chaptert xxi. The new Jerusalem.
