Then the angel said to me,
“The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages."
With a mighty voice he shouted:
“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demonsand a haunt for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“Come out of her, my people,
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
