(4) The Weeping over Babylon

9 And the kings of the earth, who have acommitted fornication and lived luxuriously with her, will bweep and lament over her when they see the csmoke of her burning,

10 aStanding afar off because of fear of her torment, saying, bWoe, woe, the cgreat city, dBabylon, the strong city, for in eone hour your fjudgment has come!

11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargo anymore:

12 1Cargo of gold and silver and precious stone and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of 2thyine wood, and every vessel of ivory, and every vessel of most precious wood and brass and iron and marble,

13 And cinnamon and 1amomum and incense and ointment and frankincense and wine and oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargo of horses and chariots and 2aslaves and 3bsouls of men.

14 And the ripe fruits of your soul's lust have gone away from you, and all the sumptuous and splendid things have perished from you; and men will find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand afar off because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,

16 Saying, Woe, woe, the great city, which was aclothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and gilded with gold and precious stone and pearl;

17 For in one hour such great wealth has become adesolate! And every ship captain and everyone sailing to a place and sailors and all who work on the sea stood afar off

18 And cried out, seeing the asmoke of her burning, saying, What city is like the great city?

19 And they cast dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, by which all those who have ships on the sea became rich from her 1wealth, for in 2one hour she has become desolate!
