Revelation 16

And I heard a great voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, Go, and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of Yahweh into the earth.


2 And the first went, and poured out his bowl into the earth; and it became a deadly and grievous sore upon the men that had the mark of the beast, and that worshiped his image.


3 And the second poured out his bowl into the sea; and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living soul died, even the things that were in the sea.


4 And the third poured out his bowl into the rivers and the fountains of waters; and it became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying, You are righteous, who is and who was, you Holy One, because you did judge like this: 6 for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and the blood have you given them to drink: they are worthy. 7 And I heard the altar saying, Yes, O Yahweh El Shaddai, true and righteous are your judgments.


8 And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat: and they blasphemed the name of Yahweh who has the power over these plagues; and they repented not to give him glory.


10 And the fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was darkened; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 and they blasphemed the Elohim of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they repented not of their works.


12 And the sixth poured out his bowl upon the great river, the Euphrates; and the water of it was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the kings that come from the sunrising. 13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, as it were frogs: 14 for they are spirits of demons, working signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together to the war of the Great Day of Yahweh, the Almighty. 15 (Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.) 16 And they gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew Har-Magedon.


17 And the seventh poured out his bowl on the air; and there came forth a great voice out of the temple, from the throne, saying, It is done: 18 and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men upon the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of Yahweh, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And great hail, every stone about the weight of a talent, comes down out of heaven upon men: and men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of the hail; for the plague of it is very great.



Revelation 17

And there came one of the seven angels that had the seven bowls, and spoke with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot that sits on many waters; 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and they that dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her fornication. 3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, even the unclean things of her fornication, 5 and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahshua. And when I saw her, I wondered with great wonder. 7 And the angel said to me, Why did you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss, and to go into perdition. And they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, they whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast, how that he was, and is not, and shall come. 9 Here is the mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits: 10 and they are seven kings; the five are fallen, the one is, the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a little while. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goes into perdition. 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings, who have received no kingdom as yet; but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour. 13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for he is Sovereign of rulers, and King of kings; and they shall also overcome that are with him, called and chosen and 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 shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire. 17 For Yahweh did put in their hearts to do his mind, and to come to one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of Yahweh should be accomplished. 18 And the woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.



Revelation 18

After these things I saw another angel coming down out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and has become a habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For by the wine of the wrath of her fornication all the nations have fallen; and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth became rich by the power of her wantonness.


4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come forth, my people, out of her, that you have no fellowship with her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues: 5 for her sins have reached even to heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her even as she rendered, and double the double according to her works: in the cup which she mingled, mingle to her double. 7 However much she glorified herself, and became wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning. 8 Therefore in one day shall her plagues come, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is Yahweh Elohim who judged her. 9 And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived wantonly with her, shall weep, and wail over her, when they look upon the smoke of her burning, 10 standing far off from the fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment came. 11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man buys their merchandise any more; 12 merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stone, and pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; and all citron wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel made of most precious wood, and of copper, and iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon, and spice, and incense, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep; and merchandise of horses and chariots and slaves; and souls of men. 14 And the fruits which your soul lusted after are gone from you, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous are perished from you, and men shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand far off for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning; 16 saying, Woe, woe, the great city, she that was arrayed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearl! 17 For in one hour so great riches is made desolate. And every shipmaster, and every one that sails anywhere, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by the sea, stood far off, 18 and cried out as they looked on the smoke of her burning, saying, What is like the great city? 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, in which all that had their ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her costliness! For in one hour she is made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, you heaven, and you saints, and you apostles, and you prophets; for Elohim has judged your judgment on her.


21 And a strong angel took up a stone as it were a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with a mighty fall shall Babylon, the great city, be cast down, and shall be found no more at all. 22 And the voice of harpers and minstrels and flute-players and trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in you; and no craftsman, of whatever craft, shall be found any more at all in you; and the voice of a mill shall be heard no more at all in you; 23 and the light of a lamp shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery were all the nations deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all that have been killed upon the earth.
