Revelation 18 - Versions
Revelation 18 Text (WEB)
  1. After these things, I saw another angel coming down out of the sky, having great authority. The earth was illuminated with his glory.
  2. He cried with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and she has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird!
  3. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality, the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from the abundance of her luxury."
  4. I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, that you have no participation in her sins, and that you don't receive of her plagues,
  5. for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities.
  6. Return to her just as she returned, and repay her double as she did, and according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix to her double.
  7. However much she glorified herself, and grew wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning. For she says in her heart, 'I sit a queen, and am no widow, and will in no way see mourning.'
  8. Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire; for the Lord God who has judged her is strong.
  9. The kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived wantonly with her, will weep and wail over her, when they look at the smoke of her burning,
  10. standing far away for the fear of her torment, saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For your judgment has come in one hour.'
  11. The merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise any more;
  12. merchandise of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, all expensive wood, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble;
  13. and cinnamon, incense, perfume, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, sheep, horses, chariots, and people's bodies and souls.
  14. The fruits which your soul lusted after have been lost to you, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous have perished from you, and you will find them no more at all.
  15. The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, will stand far away for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;
  16. saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, she who was dressed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls!
  17. For in an hour such great riches are made desolate.' Every shipmaster, and everyone who sails anywhere, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by sea, stood far away,
  18. and cried out as they looked at the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like the great city?'
  19. They cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had their ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her great wealth!' For in one hour is she made desolate.
  20. "Rejoice over her, O heaven, you saints, apostles, and prophets; for God has judged your judgment on her."
  21. A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all.
  22. The voice of harpists, minstrels, flute players, and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatever craft, will be found any more at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you.
  23. The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
  24. In her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on the earth."
Revelation 18 Text (Hebrew)

אחרי כן ראיתי מלאך אחר יורד מן השמים אשר לו שלטן גדול והארץ האירה מכבדו׃

ויקרא בקול עז לאמר נפלה נפלה בבל הגדולה ותהי נוה שערים ומשמר לכל רוח טמא ומשמר לכל עוף טמא ונמאס׃

כי מיין חמת זנותה שתו כל הגוים ומלכי ארץ זנו עמה וסחרי ארץ משפעת תענגיה העשירו׃

ואשמע קול אחר מן השמים האמר צאו ממנה עמי פן תתחברו אל חטאתיה ופן תקחו ממכותיה׃

כי חטאתיה הגיעו עד לשמים ויזכר אלהים את עונותיה׃

שלמו לה גמולה שגמלה לכם ועשו לה כפלים כפעלה בכוס אשר מסכה מסכו לה כפלים׃

כאשר התרוממה והתענגה כן תנו לה חבל ואבל כי אמרה התרוממה והתענגה כן תנו לה חבל ואבל כי אמרה בלבבה אני ישבתי מלכה ולא אהיה אלמנה ואבל לא אראה׃

על כן רגע ביום אחד תבאנה מכותיה מות ואבל ורעב ותשרף במו אש כי חזק יהוה אלהים השפט אתה׃

ויבכו ויספדו עליה מלכי ארץ אשר זנו והתענגו עמה בראתם את עשן שרפתה׃

ומרחוק יעמדו מפני אימת ענויה ואמרו אוי אוי לך בבל העיר הגדולה העיר החזקה כי בשעה אחת בא משפטך׃

וסחרי הארץ בכים ומתאבלים עליה כי עתה לא יקנה עוד איש את משא אניותם׃

את משא זהב וכסף ואבן יקרה ופנינים ובוץ וארגמן ומשי ושני וכל עצי בשם וכל כלי שנהבים וכל כלי עץ יקר וכלי נחשת וברזל ושיש׃

וקנמון וקטרת סמים ומר ולבונה ויין ושמן וסלת וחטים ומקנה וצאן וסוסים ומרכבות וגויות ונפש אדם׃

והמגדים מחמד נפשך אזלו ממך וכל שמן ומצהיר אבד ממך ולא תמצאם עוד׃

ורכליהם אשר העשירו ממנה יעמדו מרחוק מפני אימת ענויה ובכו והתאבלו׃

ואמרו אוי אוי העיר הגדולה המכסה בשש וארגמן ושני ומכללה בזהב ואבן יקרה ופנינים כי בשעה אחת החרב עשר גדול כזה׃

וכל חבל וכל בעל מעברת והמלחים וכל עשי מלאכה בים עמדו מרחוק׃

ויצעקו בראתם עשן שרפתה לאמר מי בערים כעיר הגדולה׃

ויזרקו עפר על ראשיהם ויצעקו בכה וספוד לאמר אוי אוי העיר הגדולה אשר בה העשירו מהונה כל אשר להם אניות בים כי בשעה אחת החרבה׃

רנו עליה השמים והשליחים הקדשים והנביאים כי שפט אלהים את משפטכם ממנה׃

וישא מלאך נורא אבן גדולה כפלח רכב וישליכה אל תוך הים לאמר ככה תשלך במערצה בבל העיר הגדולה ולא תמצא עוד׃

וקול המנגנים בכנור והמזמרים ומחללים בחלילים ומחצרים בחצצרות בל ישמע עוד בתוכך וכל חרש וחשב בל ימצא בך עוד וקול רחים בל ישמע עוד בקרבך׃

ואור נר לא יאיר לך עוד וקול חתן וקול כלה לא ישמע בך עוד כי כנעניך היו נכבדי ארץ ובכשפיך תעו כל הגוים׃

ובה נמצא דם הנביאים והקדשים וכל הרוגי ארץ׃

Revelation 18 Text (Greek)
  1. μετα ταυτα ειδον αλλον αγγελον καταβαινοντα εκ του ουρανου εχοντα εξουσιαν μεγαλην και η γη εφωτισθη εκ της δοξης αυτου
  2. και εκραξεν εν ισχυρα φωνη λεγων επεσεν επεσεν βαβυλων η μεγαλη και εγενετο κατοικητηριον δαιμονιων και φυλακη παντος πνευματος ακαθαρτου και φυλακη παντος ορνεου ακαθαρτου και μεμισημενου
  3. οτι εκ του θυμου της πορνειας αυτης παντα τα εθνη και οι βασιλεις της γης μετ αυτης επορνευσαν και οι εμποροι της γης εκ της δυναμεως του στρηνους αυτης επλουτησαν
  4. και ηκουσα αλλην φωνην εκ του ουρανου λεγουσαν εξελθατε ο λαος μου εξ αυτης ινα μη συγκοινωνησητε ταις αμαρτιαις αυτης και εκ των πληγων αυτης ινα μη λαβητε
  5. οτι εκολληθησαν αυτης αι αμαρτιαι αχρι του ουρανου και εμνημονευσεν ο θεος τα αδικηματα αυτης
  6. αποδοτε αυτη ως και αυτη απεδωκεν και διπλωσατε διπλα κατα τα εργα αυτης εν τω ποτηριω ω εκερασεν κερασατε αυτη διπλουν
  7. οσα εδοξασεν αυτην και εστρηνιασεν τοσουτον δοτε αυτη βασανισμον και πενθος οτι εν τη καρδια αυτης λεγει οτι καθημαι βασιλισσα και χηρα ουκ ειμι και πενθος ου μη ιδω
  8. δια τουτο εν μια ημερα ηξουσιν αι πληγαι αυτης θανατος και πενθος και λιμος και εν πυρι κατακαυθησεται οτι ισχυρος ο θεος ο κρινας αυτην
  9. και κλαυσουσιν και κοψονται επ αυτην οι βασιλεις της γης οι μετ αυτης πορνευσαντες και στρηνιασαντες οταν βλεπωσιν τον καπνον της πυρωσεως αυτης
  10. απο μακροθεν εστηκοτες δια τον φοβον του βασανισμου αυτης λεγοντες ουαι ουαι η πολις η μεγαλη βαβυλων η πολις η ισχυρα οτι μια ωρα ηλθεν η κρισις σου
  11. και οι εμποροι της γης κλαιουσιν και πενθουσιν επ αυτην οτι τον γομον αυτων ουδεις αγοραζει ουκετι
  12. γομον χρυσου και αργυρου και λιθου τιμιου και μαργαριτων και βυσσινου και πορφυρας και σιρικου και κοκκινου και παν ξυλον θυινον και παν σκευος ελεφαντινον και παν σκευος εκ ξυλου τιμιωτατου και χαλκου και σιδηρου και μαρμαρου
  13. και κινναμωμον και αμωμον και θυμιαματα και μυρον και λιβανον και οινον και ελαιον και σεμιδαλιν και σιτον και κτηνη και προβατα και ιππων και ρεδων και σωματων και ψυχας ανθρωπων
  14. και η οπωρα σου της επιθυμιας της ψυχης απηλθεν απο σου και παντα τα λιπαρα και τα λαμπρα απωλετο απο σου και ουκετι ου μη αυτα ευρησουσιν
  15. οι εμποροι τουτων οι πλουτησαντες απ αυτης απο μακροθεν στησονται δια τον φοβον του βασανισμου αυτης κλαιοντες και πενθουντες
  16. λεγοντες ουαι ουαι η πολις η μεγαλη η περιβεβλημενη βυσσινον και πορφυρουν και κοκκινον και κεχρυσωμενη χρυσιω και λιθω τιμιω και μαργαριτη
  17. οτι μια ωρα ηρημωθη ο τοσουτος πλουτος και πας κυβερνητης και πας ο επι τοπον πλεων και ναυται και οσοι την θαλασσαν εργαζονται απο μακροθεν εστησαν
  18. και βλεποντες τον καπνον της πυρωσεως αυτης λεγοντες τις ομοια τη πολει τη μεγαλη
  19. και εβαλον χουν επι τας κεφαλας αυτων και κλαιοντες και πενθουντες λεγοντες ουαι ουαι η πολις η μεγαλη εν η επλουτησαν παντες οι εχοντες τα πλοια εν τη θαλασση εκ της τιμιοτητος αυτης οτι μια ωρα ηρημωθη
  20. ευφραινου επ αυτη ουρανε και οι αγιοι και οι αποστολοι και οι προφηται οτι εκρινεν ο θεος το κριμα υμων εξ αυτης
  21. και ηρεν εις αγγελος ισχυρος λιθον ως μυλινον μεγαν και εβαλεν εις την θαλασσαν λεγων ουτως ορμηματι βληθησεται βαβυλων η μεγαλη πολις και ου μη ευρεθη ετι
  22. και φωνη κιθαρωδων και μουσικων και αυλητων και σαλπιστων ου μη ακουσθη εν σοι ετι και πας τεχνιτης ου μη ευρεθη εν σοι ετι και φωνη μυλου ου μη ακουσθη εν σοι ετι
  23. και φως λυχνου ου μη φανη εν σοι ετι και φωνη νυμφιου και νυμφης ου μη ακουσθη εν σοι ετι οτι εμποροι σου ησαν οι μεγιστανες της γης οτι εν τη φαρμακεια σου επλανηθησαν παντα τα εθνη
  24. και εν αυτη αιμα προφητων και αγιων ευρεθη και παντων των εσφαγμενων επι της γης
Revelation 18 Text (Latin)
  1. Et post hæc vidi alium angelum descendentem de cælo, habentem potestatem magnam : et terra illuminata est a gloria ejus.
  2. Et exclamavit in fortitudine, dicens : Cecidit, cecidit Babylon magna : et facta est habitatio dæmoniorum, et custodia omnis spiritus immundi, et custodia omnis volucris immundæ, et odibilis :
  3. quia de vino iræ fornicationis ejus biberunt omnes gentes : et reges terræ cum illa fornicati sunt : et mercatores terræ de virtute deliciarum ejus divites facti sunt.
  4. Et audivi aliam vocem de cælo, dicentem : Exite de illa populus meus : ut ne participes sitis delictorum ejus, et de plagis ejus non accipiatis.
  5. Quoniam pervenerunt peccata ejus usque ad cælum, et recordatus est Dominus iniquitatum ejus.
  6. Reddite illi sicut et ipsa reddidit vobis : et duplicate duplicia secundum opera ejus : in poculo, quo miscuit, miscete illi duplum.
  7. Quantum glorificavit se, et in deliciis fuit, tantum date illi tormentum et luctum : quia in corde suo dicit : Sedeo regina : et vidua non sum, et luctum non videbo.
  8. Ideo in una die venient plagæ ejus, mors, et luctus, et fames, et igne comburetur : quia fortis est Deus, qui judicabit illam.
  9. Et flebunt, et plangent se super illam reges terræ, qui cum illa fornicati sunt, et in deliciis vixerunt, cum viderint fumum incendii ejus :
  10. longe stantes propter timorem tormentorum ejus, dicentes : Væ, væ civitas illa magna Babylon, civitas illa fortis : quoniam una hora venit judicium tuum.
  11. Et negotiatores terræ flebunt, et lugebunt super illam : quoniam merces eorum nemo emet amplius :
  12. merces auri, et argenti, et lapidis pretiosi, et margaritæ, et byssi, et purpuræ, et serici, et cocci (et omne lignum thyinum, et omnia vasa eboris, et omnia vasa de lapide pretioso, et æramento, et ferro, et marmore,
  13. et cinnamomum) et odoramentorum, et unguenti, et thuris, et vini, et olei, et similæ, et tritici, et jumentorum, et ovium, et equorum, et rhedarum, et mancipiorum, et animarum hominum.
  14. Et poma desiderii animæ tuæ discesserunt a te, et omnia pinguia et præclara perierunt a te, et amplius illa jam non invenient.
  15. Mercatores horum, qui divites facti sunt, ab ea longe stabunt propter timorem tormentorum ejus, flentes, ac lugentes,
  16. et dicentes : Væ, væ civitas illa magna, quæ amicta erat bysso, et purpura, et cocco, et deaurata erat auro, et lapide pretioso, et margaritis :
  17. quoniam una hora destitutæ sunt tantæ divitiæ, et omnis gubernator, et omnis qui in lacum navigat, et nautæ, et qui in mari operantur, longe steterunt,
  18. et clamaverunt videntes locum incendii ejus, dicentes : Quæ similis civitati huic magnæ ?
  19. et miserunt pulverem super capita sua, et clamaverunt flentes, et lugentes, dicentes : Væ, væ civitas illa magna, in qua divites facti sunt omnes, qui habebant naves in mari de pretiis ejus : quoniam una hora desolata est.
  20. Exsulta super eam cælum, et sancti apostoli, et prophetæ : quoniam judicavit Deus judicium vestrum de illa.
  21. Et sustulit unus angelus fortis lapidem quasi molarem magnum, et misit in mare, dicens : Hoc impetu mittetur Babylon civitas illa magna, et ultra jam non invenietur.
  22. Et vox citharœdorum, et musicorum, et tibia canentium, et tuba non audietur in te amplius : et omnis artifex omnis artis non invenietur in te amplius : et vox molæ non audietur in te amplius :
  23. et lux lucernæ non lucebit in te amplius : et vox sponsi et sponsæ non audietur adhuc in te : quia mercatores tui erant principes terræ, quia in veneficiis tuis erraverunt omnes gentes.
  24. Et in ea sanguis prophetarum et sanctorum inventus est : et omnium qui interfecti sunt in terra.
Revelation 18 Text (KJV)
  1. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
  2. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
  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 deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, 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, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
  9. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
  10. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty 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 scarlet, 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 frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
  14. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from 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 by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
  16. And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, 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!
  19. And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich 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 great city Babylon be thrown down, 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 he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound 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.
  24. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
