55- Predicted Reaction of Kings and Merchants

Revelation 18:9-19

9] And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her (Babylon), 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 your judgment is come.

11] And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys 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 of vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

13] And cinnamon, and fragrances, 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 your soul lusted after are departed from you, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from you, and you shall find them no more at all.

15] The merchants of these things, who were made rich by Babylon, shall stand far off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

16] And say, 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 such great riches is come to nothing. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood far off,

18] And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like this great city!

19] And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her costliness! In one hour she is made desolate.
