The First Beast | The Second Beast

 

13:1

The First Beast

 

1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.

Daniel 7:3

And four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another.

 

Daniel 7:7

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.

 

Daniel 7:8

I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

13:2

2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear's, and its mouth was like a lion's mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.

Daniel 7:4-6

he first was like a lion and had eagles' wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man, and the mind of a man was given to it. 5 And behold, another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side. It had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth; and it was told, ‘Arise, devour much flesh.’ 6 After this I looked, and behold, another, like a leopard, with four wings of a bird on its back. And the beast had four heads, and dominion was given to it.

 

Daniel 7:8

I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

13:3

3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast.

Daniel 7:8

I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

13:4

4 And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?

Daniel 8:24

His power shall be great-but not by his own power; and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints.

13:5

5 And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.

 

6 It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven.

Daniel 7:8

I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

 

Daniel 7:11

looked then because of the sound of the great words that the horn was speaking. And as I looked, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire.

 

Daniel 7:20

and about the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn that came up and before which three of them fell, the horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things, and that seemed greater than its companions

 

Daniel 7:25

​​​​​​​​He shall speak words against the Most High, ​​​​​​​and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, ​​​​​​​and shall think to change the times and the law; ​​​​​​​and they shall be given into his hand ​​​​​​​for a time, times, and half a time. ​​​

 

Daniel 11:36

And the king shall do as he wills. He shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods. He shall prosper till the indignation is accomplished; for what is decreed shall be done.

13:7

7 Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation,

Daniel 7:21

As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them,

13:8

8 and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

 

9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear:

Daniel 12:1

At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.

13:10

10 ​​​​​​​​If anyone is to be taken captive, ​​​​​​​to captivity he goes; ​​​​​​​if anyone is to be slain with the sword, ​​​​​​​with the sword must he be slain. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. ​​​

Jeremiah 15:2

And when they ask you, ‘Where shall we go?’ you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“‘Those who are for pestilence, to pestilence, ​​​​​​​and those who are for the sword, to the sword; ​​​​​​​those who are for famine, to famine, ​​​​​​​and those who are for captivity, to captivity.’ ​​​

 

Jeremiah 43:11

He shall come and strike the land of Egypt, giving over to the pestilence those who are doomed to the pestilence, to captivity those who are doomed to captivity, and to the sword those who are doomed to the sword.

13:11

 

The Second Beast

 

11 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.

 

12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.

Daniel 8:3

I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.

13:13

13 It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people,

 

14 and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

 

15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.

 

16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,

 

17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

 

18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.

 

I Kings 1:9-12 (likely incorrect in the document)

Adonijah sacrificed sheep, oxen, and fattened cattle by the Serpent's Stone, which is beside En-rogel, and he invited all his brothers, the king's sons, and all the royal officials of Judah, 10 but he did not invite Nathan the prophet or Benaiah or the mighty men or Solomon his brother. 11 Then Nathan said to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon, “Have you not heard that Adonijah the son of Haggith has become king and David our lord does not know it? 12 Now therefore come, let me give you advice, that you may save your own life and the life of your son Solomon.

 

The Lamb and the 144,000 | The Messages of the Three Angels | The Harvest of the Earth

 

14:1

The Lamb and the 144,000

 

1 Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads.

 

Psalm 2:6

As for me, I have set my King ​​​​​​​on Zion, my holy hill.

 

Ezekiel 9:4

And the LORD said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.”

14:2

2 And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps,

Ezekiel 1:24

And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings.

 

Ezekiel 43:2

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory.

14:3

 

3 and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.

 

4 It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb,

 

5 and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless.

 

The Messages of the Three Angels

 

6 Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people.

 

Psalm 144:9

​​​​​​​​I will sing a new song to you, O God; ​​​​​​​upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you, ​​​

14:7

7 And he said with a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.

Exodus 20:11

but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.

14:8

8 Another angel, a second, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.

Isaiah 21:9

And behold, here come riders, ​​​​​​​horsemen in pairs!” ​​​​​​​And he answered, ​​​​​​​“Fallen, fallen is Babylon; ​​​​​​​and all the carved images of her gods ​​​​​​​he has shattered to the ground.”

 

Jeremiah 51:7-8

​​​​​​​​Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD's hand, ​​​​​​​making all the earth drunken; ​​​​​​​the nations drank of her wine; ​​​​​​​therefore the nations went mad. ​​​ 8 ​​​​​​​​Suddenly Babylon has fallen and been broken; ​​​​​​​wail for her! ​​​​​​​Take balm for her pain; ​​​​​​​perhaps she may be healed.

14:10

9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,

 

10 he also will drink the wine of God's wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.

Genesis 19:24

Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulfur and fire from the LORD out of heaven.

 

Psalm 75:8

​​​​​​​​For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup ​​​​​​​with foaming wine, well mixed, ​​​​​​​and he pours out from it, ​​​​​​​and all the wicked of the earth ​​​​​​​shall drain it down to the dregs.

 

Isaiah 51:17

​​​​​​​​Wake yourself, wake yourself, ​​​​​​​stand up, O Jerusalem, ​​​​​​​you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD ​​​​​​​the cup of his wrath, ​​​​​​​who have drunk to the dregs ​​​​​​​the bowl, the cup of staggering.

14:11

11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.

 

12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

 

13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

Isaiah 34:10

10 ​​​​​​​​Night and day it shall not be quenched; ​​​​​​​its smoke shall go up forever. ​​​​​​​From generation to generation it shall lie waste; ​​​​​​​none shall pass through it forever and ever.

 

Isaiah 66:24

And they shall go out and look on the dead bodies of the men who have rebelled against me. For their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.

14:14

The Harvest of the Earth

 

14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.

 

15 And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.”

 

16 So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the earth, and the earth was reaped.

 

17 Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.

Daniel 7:13

I saw in the night visions, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​and behold, with the clouds of heaven ​​​​​​​there came one like a son of man, ​​​​​​​and he came to the Ancient of Days ​​​​​​​and was presented before him.

14:18

18 And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.”

Joel 3:13

​​​​​​​Put in the sickle, ​​​​​​​for the harvest is ripe. ​​​​​​​Go in, tread, ​​​​​​​for the winepress is full. ​​​​​​​The vats overflow, ​​​​​​​for their evil is great.

14:19

19 So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Isaiah 63:1-6

1 ​​​​​​​​Who is this who comes from Edom, ​​​​​​​in crimsoned garments from Bozrah, ​​​​​​​he who is splendid in his apparel, ​​​​​​​marching in the greatness of his strength? ​​​​​​​“It is I, speaking in righteousness, ​​​​​​​mighty to save.” ​​​ 2 ​​​​​​​​Why is your apparel red, ​​​​​​​and your garments like his who treads in the winepress? ​​​ 3 ​​​​​​​​“I have trodden the winepress alone, ​​​​​​​and from the peoples no one was with me; ​​​​​​​I trod them in my anger ​​​​​​​and trampled them in my wrath; ​​​​​​​their lifeblood spattered on my garments, ​​​​​​​and stained all my apparel. ​​​ 4 ​​​​​​​​For the day of vengeance was in my heart, ​​​​​​​and my year of redemption had come. ​​​ 5 ​​​​​​​​I looked, but there was no one to help; ​​​​​​​I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold; ​​​​​​​so my own arm brought me salvation, ​​​​​​​and my wrath upheld me. ​​​ 6 ​​​​​​​​I trampled down the peoples in my anger; ​​​​​​​I made them drunk in my wrath, ​​​​​​​and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

14:20

20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse's bridle, for 1,600 stadia.

Joel 3:13

​​​​​​​Put in the sickle, ​​​​​​​for the harvest is ripe. ​​​​​​​Go in, tread, ​​​​​​​for the winepress is full. ​​​​​​​The vats overflow, ​​​​​​​for their evil is great.

 

 

The Seven Angels with Seven Plagues

 

15:1

 

1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished.

 

2 And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire-and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.

Leviticus 26:21

Then if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will continue striking you, sevenfold for your sins.

15:3

3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Great and amazing are your deeds, ​​​​​​​O Lord God the Almighty! ​​​​​​​Just and true are your ways, ​​​​​​​O King of the nations!

Exodus 15:1-18

Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the LORD, saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; ​​​​​​​the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea. ​​​ 2 ​​​​​​​​The LORD is my strength and my song, ​​​​​​​and he has become my salvation; ​​​​​​​this is my God, and I will praise him, ​​​​​​​my father's God, and I will exalt him. ​​​ 3 ​​​​​​​​The LORD is a man of war; ​​​​​​​the LORD is his name. ​​​ 4 ​​​​​​​​“Pharaoh's chariots and his host he cast into the sea, ​​​​​​​and his chosen officers were sunk in the Red Sea. ​​​ 5 ​​​​​​​​The floods covered them; ​​​​​​​they went down into the depths like a stone. ​​​ 6 ​​​​​​​​Your right hand, O LORD, glorious in power, ​​​​​​​your right hand, O LORD, shatters the enemy. ​​​ 7 ​​​​​​​​In the greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries; ​​​​​​​you send out your fury; it consumes them like stubble. ​​​ 8 ​​​​​​​​At the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up; ​​​​​​​the floods stood up in a heap; ​​​​​​​the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea. ​​​ 9 ​​​​​​​​The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, ​​​​​​​I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them. ​​​​​​​I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.’ ​​​ 10 ​​​​​​​​You blew with your wind; the sea covered them; ​​​​​​​they sank like lead in the mighty waters. ​​​ 11 ​​​​​​​​“Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? ​​​​​​​Who is like you, majestic in holiness, ​​​​​​​awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders? ​​​ 12 ​​​​​​​​You stretched out your right hand; ​​​​​​​the earth swallowed them. ​​​ 13 ​​​​​​​​“You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed; ​​​​​​​you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode. ​​​ 14 ​​​​​​​​The peoples have heard; they tremble; ​​​​​​​pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia. ​​​ 15 ​​​​​​​​Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed; ​​​​​​​trembling seizes the leaders of Moab; ​​​​​​​all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away. ​​​ 16 ​​​​​​​​Terror and dread fall upon them; ​​​​​​​because of the greatness of your arm, they are still as a stone, ​​​​​​​till your people, O LORD, pass by, ​​​​​​​till the people pass by whom you have purchased. ​​​ 17 ​​​​​​​​You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain, ​​​​​​​the place, O LORD, which you have made for your abode, ​​​​​​​the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established. ​​​ 18 ​​​​​​​​The LORD will reign forever and ever.” ​​​

 

Psalm 92:5

​​​​​​​​How great are your works, O LORD! ​​​​​​​Your thoughts are very deep!

 

Psalm 111:2

​​​​​​​​Great are the works of the LORD, ​​​​​​​studied by all who delight in them.

 

Psalm 139:14

​​​​​​​​I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. ​​​​​​​Wonderful are your works; ​​​​​​​my soul knows it very well.

15:4

4 ​​​​​​​​Who will not fear, O Lord, ​​​​​​​and glorify your name? ​​​​​​​For you alone are holy. ​​​​​​​All nations will come ​​​​​​​and worship you, ​​​​​​​for your righteous acts have been revealed.​

Psalm 86:9

​​​​​​​​All the nations you have made shall come ​​​​​​​and worship before you, O Lord, ​​​​​​​and shall glorify your name. ​​​

 

Isaiah 66:23

23 ​​​​​​​​From new moon to new moon, ​​​​​​​and from Sabbath to Sabbath, ​​​​​​​all flesh shall come to worship before me, ​​​​​​​declares the LORD.

 

Jeremiah 10:7

​​​​​​​Who would not fear you, O King of the nations? ​​​​​​​For this is your due; ​​​​​​​for among all the wise ones of the nations ​​​​​​​and in all their kingdoms ​​​​​​​there is none like you.

15:5

5 After this I looked, and the sanctuary of the tent of witness in heaven was opened,

Exodus 38:21

These are the records of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, as they were recorded at the commandment of Moses, the responsibility of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

15:6

6 and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues, clothed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes around their chests.

Leviticus 26:21

Then if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will continue striking you, sevenfold for your sins.

15:7

7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever,

Jeremiah 25:15

Thus the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup of the wine of wrath, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it.

15:8

8 and the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.

Exod. 40:34-35

Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled on it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

 

Lev. 26:21

Then if you walk contrary to me and will not listen to me, I will continue striking you, sevenfold for your sins.

 

I Kings 8:10-11

And when the priests came out of the Holy Place, a cloud filled the house of the LORD, 11 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.

 

II Chron. 5:13-14

and it was the duty of the trumpeters and singers to make themselves heard in unison in praise and thanksgiving to the LORD), and when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals and other musical instruments, in praise to the LORD, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“For he is good, ​​​​​​​for his steadfast love endures forever,” ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, ​​​ 14 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God.

 

Isaiah 6:1-4

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; ​​​​​​​the whole earth is full of his glory!” ​​​ 4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.

 

 

The Seven Bowls of God's Wrath | The Seventh Bowl

 

16:1

The Seven Bowls of God's Wrath

 

1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.

Psalm 79:6

​​​​​​​​Pour out your anger on the nations ​​​​​​​that do not know you, ​​​​​​​and on the kingdoms ​​​​​​​that do not call upon your name!

 

Jeremiah 10:25

Pour out your wrath on the nations that know you not, ​​​​​​​and on the peoples that call not on your name, ​​​​​​​for they have devoured Jacob; ​​​​​​​they have devoured him and consumed him, ​​​​​​​and have laid waste his habitation. ​​​

 

Ezekiel 22:31

Therefore I have poured out my indignation upon them. I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath. I have returned their way upon their heads, declares the Lord GOD.

16:2

2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful sores came upon the people who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

Exodus 9:9-11

It shall become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and become boils breaking out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt.” 10 So they took soot from the kiln and stood before Pharaoh. And Moses threw it in the air, and it became boils breaking out in sores on man and beast. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils came upon the magicians and upon all the Egyptians.

 

Deuteronomy 28:35

The LORD will strike you on the knees and on the legs with grievous boils of which you cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the crown of your head.

16:3

3 The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse, and every living thing died that was in the sea.

Exodus 7:17-25

Thus says the LORD, "By this you shall know that I am the LORD: behold, with the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water that is in the Nile, and it shall turn into blood. 18 The fish in the Nile shall die, and the Nile will stink, and the Egyptians will grow weary of drinking water from the Nile."’” 19 And the LORD said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, their canals, and their ponds, and all their pools of water, so that they may become blood, and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, even in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.’” 20 Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water in the Nile turned into blood. 21 And the fish in the Nile died, and the Nile stank, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. There was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts. So Pharaoh's heart remained hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the LORD had said. 23 Pharaoh turned and went into his house, and he did not take even this to heart. 24 And all the Egyptians dug along the Nile for water to drink, for they could not drink the water of the Nile. 25 Seven full days passed after the LORD had struck the Nile.

16:4

4 The third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water, and they became blood.

Exodus 7:17-21

Thus says the LORD, "By this you shall know that I am the LORD: behold, with the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water that is in the Nile, and it shall turn into blood. 18 The fish in the Nile shall die, and the Nile will stink, and the Egyptians will grow weary of drinking water from the Nile."’” 19 And the LORD said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, their canals, and their ponds, and all their pools of water, so that they may become blood, and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, even in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.’” 20 Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water in the Nile turned into blood. 21 And the fish in the Nile died, and the Nile stank, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. There was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

 

Psalm 78:44

​​​​​​​​He turned their rivers to blood, ​​​​​​​so that they could not drink of their streams.

16:5

5 And I heard the angel in charge of the waters say, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Just are you, O Holy One, who is and who was, ​​​​​​​for you brought these judgments. ​​​

Psalm 145:17

​​​​​​​​The LORD is righteous in all his ways ​​​​​​​and kind in all his works.

16:6

6 ​​​​​​​​For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, ​​​​​​​and you have given them blood to drink. ​​​​​​​It is what they deserve!

Isaiah 49:26

I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, ​​​​​​​and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine. ​​​​​​​Then all flesh shall know ​​​​​​​that I am the LORD your Savior, ​​​​​​​and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

16:7

7 And I heard the altar saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Yes, Lord God the Almighty, ​​​​​​​true and just are your judgments! ​​​

 

8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire.

 

9 They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give him glory.

Psalm 19:9

​​​​​​​​the fear of the LORD is clean, ​​​​​​​enduring forever; ​​​​​​​the rules of the LORD are true, ​​​​​​​and righteous altogether.

​​​​​​​​The LORD is righteous in all his ways ​​​​​​​and kind in all his works.

16:10

10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in anguish

 

11 and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores. They did not repent of their deeds.

Exodus 10:21-23

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness to be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was pitch darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. 23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, but all the people of Israel had light where they lived.

And the LORD will utterly destroy ​​​​​​​the tongue of the Sea of Egypt, ​​​​​​​and will wave his hand over the River ​​​​​​​with his scorching breath, ​​​​​​​and strike it into seven channels, ​​​​​​​and he will lead people across in sandals. ​​​ 16 ​​​​​​​​And there will be a highway from Assyria ​​​​​​​for the remnant that remains of his people, ​​​​​​​as there was for Israel ​​​​​​​when they came up from the land of Egypt. ​​​

 

Isaih 41:2

​​​​​​​​Who stirred up one from the east ​​​​​​​whom victory meets at every step? ​​​​​​​He gives up nations before him, ​​​​​​​so that he tramples kings underfoot; ​​​​​​​he makes them like dust with his sword, ​​​​​​​like driven stubble with his bow.

 

Isaiah 41:25

I stirred up one from the north, and he has come, ​​​​​​​from the rising of the sun, and he shall call upon my name; ​​​​​​​he shall trample on rulers as on mortar, ​​​​​​​as the potter treads clay. ​​​

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 like frogs.

So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.

16:14

14 For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.

 

15 (“Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”)

Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, saying, ‘I will entice him.’ 22 And the LORD said to him, ‘By what means?’ And he said, ‘I will go out, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And he said, ‘You are to entice him, and you shall succeed; go out and do so.’ 23 Now therefore behold, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; the LORD has declared disaster for you.

16:16

16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

 

The Seventh Bowl

 

17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

 

18 And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake

Judges 5:19

II Kings 23:29-30

In his days Pharaoh Neco king of Egypt went up to the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates. King Josiah went to meet him, and Pharaoh Neco killed him at Megiddo, as soon as he saw him. 30 And his servants carried him dead in a chariot from Megiddo and brought him to Jerusalem and buried him in his own tomb. And the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and anointed him, and made him king in his father's place.

 

II Chronicles 35:22

Nevertheless, Josiah did not turn away from him, but disguised himself in order to fight with him. He did not listen to the words of Neco from the mouth of God, but came to fight in the plain of Megiddo.

 

Zechariah 12:11

On that day the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.

16:19

19 The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.

 

20 And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found

16:21

21 And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.

Behold, about this time tomorrow I will cause very heavy hail to fall, such as never has been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now. 19 Now therefore send, get your livestock and all that you have in the field into safe shelter, for every man and beast that is in the field and is not brought home will die when the hail falls on them."’” 20 Then whoever feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh hurried his slaves and his livestock into the houses, 21 but whoever did not pay attention to the word of the LORD left his slaves and his livestock in the field. 22 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, so that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man and beast and every plant of the field, in the land of Egypt.” 23 Then Moses stretched out his staff toward heaven, and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. 24 There was hail and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very heavy hail, such as had never been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 25 The hail struck down everything that was in the field in all the land of Egypt, both man and beast. And the hail struck down every plant of the field and broke every tree of the field.

 

The Great Prostitute and the Beast

 

17:1

1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters,

Jeremiah 51:13

​​​​​​​​O you who dwell by many waters, ​​​​​​​rich in treasures, ​​​​​​​your end has come; ​​​​​​​the thread of your life is cut.

 

Nahum 3:4

​​​​​​​​And all for the countless whorings of the prostitute, ​​​​​​​graceful and of deadly charms, ​​​​​​​who betrays nations with her whorings, ​​​​​​​and peoples with her charms.

17:2

2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.

Isaiah 23:17

At the end of seventy years, the LORD will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages and will prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth.

17:3

3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns.

Daniel 7:7

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.

17:4

4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality.

 

5 And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth's abominations.”

 

6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. ​​​​​​​​​​​When I saw her, I marveled greatly. ​​​

 

7 But the angel said to me, “Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her.

Jeremiah 51:7

​​​​​​​​Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD's hand, ​​​​​​​making all the earth drunken; ​​​​​​​the nations drank of her wine; ​​​​​​​therefore the nations went mad.

 

Ezekiel 28:13

You were in Eden, the garden of God; ​​​​​​​every precious stone was your covering, ​​​​​​​sardius, topaz, and diamond, ​​​​​​​beryl, onyx, and jasper, ​​​​​​​sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; ​​​​​​​and crafted in gold were your settings ​​​​​​​and your engravings. ​​​​​​​On the day that you were created ​​​​​​​they were prepared.

17:8

8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.

 

9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;

 

10 they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he does come he must remain only a little while.

 

11 As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction.

Exodus 32:32-33

But now, if you will forgive their sin-but if not, please blot me out of your book that you have written. 33 But the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, I will blot out of my book.

 

Daniel 12:1

At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.

17:12

12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.

 

13 These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast.

 

14 They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”

 

15 And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.

Daniel 7:24-25

As for the ten horns, ​​​​​​​out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, ​​​​​​​and another shall arise after them; ​​​​​​​he shall be different from the former ones, ​​​​​​​and shall put down three kings. ​​​ 25 ​​​​​​​​He shall speak words against the Most High, ​​​​​​​and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, ​​​​​​​and shall think to change the times and the law; ​​​​​​​and they shall be given into his hand ​​​​​​​for a time, times, and half a time. ​​​

17:16

16 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,

 

17 for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.

 

18 And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth.”

 

Leviticus 21:9

And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by whoring, profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire.

 

The Fall of Babylon

 

18:1

 

1 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory.

 

Ezekiel 43:2

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory.

18:2

2 And he called out with a mighty voice, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! ​​​​​​​She has become a dwelling place for demons, ​​​​​​​a haunt for every unclean spirit, ​​​​​​​a haunt for every unclean bird, ​​​​​​​a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.

Isaiah 21:9

9 ​​​​​​​​And behold, here come riders, ​​​​​​​horsemen in pairs!” ​​​​​​​And he answered, ​​​​​​​“Fallen, fallen is Babylon; ​​​​​​​and all the carved images of her gods ​​​​​​​he has shattered to the ground.

 

Isaih 34:13-15

​​​​​​​Thorns shall grow over its strongholds, ​​​​​​​nettles and thistles in its fortresses. ​​​​​​​It shall be the haunt of jackals, ​​​​​​​an abode for ostriches. ​​​ 14 ​​​​​​​​And wild animals shall meet with hyenas; ​​​​​​​the wild goat shall cry to his fellow; ​​​​​​​indeed, there the night bird settles ​​​​​​​and finds for herself a resting place. ​​​ 15 ​​​​​​​​There the owl nests and lays ​​​​​​​and hatches and gathers her young in her shadow; ​​​​​​​indeed, there the hawks are gathered, ​​​​​​​each one with her mate.

 

Jeremiah 50:30

herefore her young men shall fall in her squares, and all her soldiers shall be destroyed on that day, declares the LORD.

 

Jeremiah 51:37

​​​​​​​​and Babylon shall become a heap of ruins, ​​​​​​​the haunt of jackals, ​​​​​​​a horror and a hissing, ​​​​​​​without inhabitant.

18:3

3 ​​​​​​​​For all nations have drunk ​​​​​​​the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, ​​​​​​​and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, ​​​​​​​and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.

Jeremiah 51:7

​​​​​​​​Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD's hand, ​​​​​​​making all the earth drunken; ​​​​​​​the nations drank of her wine; ​​​​​​​therefore the nations went mad.

18:4

​​​4 Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Come out of her, my people, ​​​​​​​lest you take part in her sins, ​​​​​​​lest you share in her plagues;

Isaiah 52:11

​​​​​​​​Depart, depart, go out from there; ​​​​​​​touch no unclean thing; ​​​​​​​go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves, ​​​​​​​you who bear the vessels of the LORD.

 

Jeremiah 50:8

Flee from the midst of Babylon, and go out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as male goats before the flock.

 

Jeremiah 51:6

Flee from the midst of Babylon; ​​​​​​​let every one save his life! ​​​​​​​Be not cut off in her punishment, ​​​​​​​for this is the time of the LORD's vengeance, ​​​​​​​the repayment he is rendering her. ​​​

 

Jeremiah 51:45

Go out of the midst of her, my people! ​​​​​​​Let every one save his life ​​​​​​​from the fierce anger of the LORD!

18:5

​​​5 ​​​​​​​​for her sins are heaped high as heaven, ​​​​​​​and God has remembered her iniquities. ​​​

Jeremiah 41:9

Now the cistern into which Ishmael had thrown all the bodies of the men whom he had struck down along with Gedaliah was the large cistern that King Asa had made for defense against Baasha king of Israel; Ishmael the son of Nethaniah filled it with the slain.

18:6

6 ​​​​​​​​Pay her back as she herself has paid back others, ​​​​​​​and repay her double for her deeds; ​​​​​​​mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed. ​​​

Psalm 137:8

​​​​​​​​O daughter of Babylon, doomed to be destroyed, ​​​​​​​blessed shall he be who repays you ​​​​​​​with what you have done to us! ​​​

 

Jeremiah 50:15

​​​​​​​​Raise a shout against her all around; ​​​​​​​she has surrendered; ​​​​​​​her bulwarks have fallen; ​​​​​​​her walls are thrown down. ​​​​​​​For this is the vengeance of the LORD: ​​​​​​​take vengeance on her; ​​​​​​​do to her as she has done. ​​​

 

Jeremiah 50:29

Summon archers against Babylon, all those who bend the bow. Encamp around her; let no one escape. Repay her according to her deeds; do to her according to all that she has done. For she has proudly defied the LORD, the Holy One of Israel.

18:7

7 ​​​​​​​​As she glorified herself and lived in luxury, ​​​​​​​so give her a like measure of torment and mourning, ​​​​​​​since in her heart she says, ​​​​​​​‘I sit as a queen, ​​​​​​​I am no widow, ​​​​​​​and mourning I shall never see.’ ​​​

Isaiah 47:7-8

​​​​​​​​You said, “I shall be mistress forever,” ​​​​​​​so that you did not lay these things to heart ​​​​​​​or remember their end. ​​​ 8 ​​​​​​​​Now therefore hear this, you lover of pleasures, ​​​​​​​who sit securely, ​​​​​​​who say in your heart, ​​​​​​​“I am, and there is no one besides me; ​​​​​​​I shall not sit as a widow ​​​​​​​or know the loss of children”: ​​​

 

Zephaniah 2:15

​​​​​​​​This is the exultant city ​​​​​​​that lived securely, ​​​​​​​that said in her heart, ​​​​​​​“I am, and there is no one else.” ​​​​​​​What a desolation she has become, ​​​​​​​a lair for wild beasts! ​​​​​​​Everyone who passes by her ​​​​​​​hisses and shakes his fist. ​​​

18:8

8 ​​​​​​​​For this reason her plagues will come in a single day, ​​​​​​​death and mourning and famine, ​​​​​​​and she will be burned up with fire; ​​​​​​​for mighty is the Lord God who has judged her.

Isaiah 47:9

​​​​​​​​These two things shall come to you ​​​​​​​in a moment, in one day; ​​​​​​​the loss of children and widowhood ​​​​​​​shall come upon you in full measure, ​​​​​​​in spite of your many sorceries ​​​​​​​and the great power of your enchantments.

 

Jeremiah 50:31-32

Behold, I am against you, O proud one, ​​​​​​​declares the Lord GOD of hosts, ​​​​​​​for your day has come, ​​​​​​​the time when I will punish you. ​​​ 32 ​​​​​​​​The proud one shall stumble and fall, ​​​​​​​with none to raise him up, ​​​​​​​and I will kindle a fire in his cities, ​​​​​​​and it will devour all that is around him.

18:9

9 And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning.

Jeremiah 50:46

At the sound of the capture of Babylon the earth shall tremble, and her cry shall be heard among the nations.

18:10

10 They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Alas! Alas! You great city, ​​​​​​​you mighty city, Babylon! ​​​​​​​For in a single hour your judgment has come.

 

11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo anymore,

Isaiah 13:1

The oracle concerning Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.

18:12

12 cargo of gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, scarlet cloth, all kinds of scented wood, all kinds of articles of ivory, all kinds of articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,

Ezekiel 27:12-25

Tarshish did business with you because of your great wealth of every kind; silver, iron, tin, and lead they exchanged for your wares. 13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech traded with you; they exchanged human beings and vessels of bronze for your merchandise. 14 From Beth-togarmah they exchanged horses, war horses, and mules for your wares. 15 The men of Dedan traded with you. Many coastlands were your own special markets; they brought you in payment ivory tusks and ebony. 16 Syria did business with you because of your abundant goods; they exchanged for your wares emeralds, purple, embroidered work, fine linen, coral, and ruby. 17 Judah and the land of Israel traded with you; they exchanged for your merchandise wheat of Minnith, meal, honey, oil, and balm. 18 Damascus did business with you for your abundant goods, because of your great wealth of every kind; wine of Helbon and wool of Sahar 19 and casks of wine from Uzal they exchanged for your wares; wrought iron, cassia, and calamus were bartered for your merchandise. 20 Dedan traded with you in saddlecloths for riding. 21 Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were your favored dealers in lambs, rams, and goats; in these they did business with you. 22 The traders of Sheba and Raamah traded with you; they exchanged for your wares the best of all kinds of spices and all precious stones and gold. 23 Haran, Canneh, Eden, traders of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad traded with you. 24 In your market these traded with you in choice garments, in clothes of blue and embroidered work, and in carpets of colored material, bound with cords and made secure. 25 The ships of Tarshish traveled for you with your merchandise. So you were filled and heavily laden in the heart of the seas.

18:9-19

9 And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning.

 

10 They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Alas! Alas! You great city, ​​​​​​​you mighty city, Babylon! ​​​​​​​For in a single hour your judgment has come.” ​​​

 

11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo anymore,

 

12 cargo of gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, scarlet cloth, all kinds of scented wood, all kinds of articles of ivory, all kinds of articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,

 

13 cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, that is, human souls.

 

14 ​​​​​​​​“The fruit for which your soul longed ​​​​​​​has gone from you, ​​​​​​​and all your delicacies and your splendors ​​​​​​​are lost to you, ​​​​​​​never to be found again!” ​​​

 

15 The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her, will stand far off, in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning aloud,

 

16 ​​​​​​​​“Alas, alas, for the great city ​​​​​​​that was clothed in fine linen, ​​​​​​​in purple and scarlet, ​​​​​​​adorned with gold, ​​​​​​​with jewels, and with pearls! ​​​

 

17 ​​​​​​​​For in a single hour all this wealth has been laid waste.” ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​And all shipmasters and seafaring men, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea, stood far off ​​​

 

18 and cried out as they saw the smoke of her burning, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“What city was like the great city?” ​​​

 

19 And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and mourned, crying out, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“Alas, alas, for the great city ​​​​​​​where all who had ships at sea ​​​​​​​grew rich by her wealth! ​​​​​​​For in a single hour she has been laid waste. ​​​

Ezekiel 26:16-18

Then all the princes of the sea will step down from their thrones and remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground and tremble every moment and be appalled at you. 17 And they will raise a lamentation over you and say to you, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“‘How you have perished, ​​​​​​​you who were inhabited from the seas, ​​​​​​​O city renowned, ​​​​​​​who was mighty on the sea; ​​​​​​​she and her inhabitants imposed their terror ​​​​​​​on all her inhabitants! ​​​ 18 ​​​​​​​​Now the coastlands tremble ​​​​​​​on the day of your fall, ​​​​​​​and the coastlands that are on the sea ​​​​​​​are dismayed at your passing.

 

Ezekiel 27:26-31

Your rowers have brought you out ​​​​​​​into the high seas. ​​​​​​​The east wind has wrecked you ​​​​​​​in the heart of the seas. ​​​ 27 ​​​​​​​​Your riches, your wares, your merchandise, ​​​​​​​your mariners and your pilots, ​​​​​​​your caulkers, your dealers in merchandise, ​​​​​​​and all your men of war who are in you, ​​​​​​​with all your crew ​​​​​​​that is in your midst, ​​​​​​​sink into the heart of the seas ​​​​​​​on the day of your fall. ​​​ 28 ​​​​​​​​At the sound of the cry of your pilots ​​​​​​​the countryside shakes, ​​​ 29 ​​​​​​​​and down from their ships ​​​​​​​come all who handle the oar. ​​​​​​​The mariners and all the pilots of the sea ​​​​​​​stand on the land ​​​ 30 ​​​​​​​​and shout aloud over you ​​​​​​​and cry out bitterly. ​​​​​​​They cast dust on their heads ​​​​​​​and wallow in ashes; ​​​ 31 ​​​​​​​​they make themselves bald for you ​​​​​​​and put sackcloth on their waist, ​​​​​​​and they weep over you in bitterness of soul, ​​​​​​​with bitter mourning.

18:20

20 ​​​​​​​​Rejoice over her, O heaven, ​​​​​​​and you saints and apostles and prophets, ​​​​​​​for God has given judgment for you against her!

Jeremiah 51:48

​​​​​​​​Then the heavens and the earth, ​​​​​​​and all that is in them, ​​​​​​​shall sing for joy over Babylon, ​​​​​​​for the destroyers shall come against them out of the north, ​​​​​​​declares the LORD. ​​​

18:21

21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​“So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, ​​​​​​​and will be found no more;

Jeremiah 51:63-64

When you finish reading this book, tie a stone to it and cast it into the midst of the Euphrates, 64 and say, ‘Thus shall Babylon sink, to rise no more, because of the disaster that I am bringing upon her, and they shall become exhausted.’” ​​​​​​​​​​​Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. ​​​

18:22

22 ​​​​​​​​and the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters, ​​​​​​​will be heard in you no more, ​​​​​​​and a craftsman of any craft ​​​​​​​will be found in you no more, ​​​​​​​and the sound of the mill ​​​​​​​will be heard in you no more,

Isaiah 24:8

he mirth of the tambourines is stilled, ​​​​​​​the noise of the jubilant has ceased, ​​​​​​​the mirth of the lyre is stilled.

Moreover, I will banish from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the grinding of the millstones and the light of the lamp.

 

Ezekiel 26:13

And I will stop the music of your songs, and the sound of your lyres shall be heard no more.

18:23

23 ​​​​​​​​and the light of a lamp ​​​​​​​will shine in you no more, ​​​​​​​and the voice of bridegroom and bride ​​​​​​​will be heard in you no more, ​​​​​​​for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, ​​​​​​​and all nations were deceived by your sorcery. ​​​

 

24 ​​​​​​​​And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, ​​​​​​​and of all who have been slain on earth.” ​​​

Jeremiah 7:34

And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.

For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will silence in this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.

 

Jeremiah 25:10

Moreover, I will banish from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the grinding of the millstones and the light of the lamp.

 

Nahum 3:4

​​​​​​​​And all for the countless whorings of the prostitute, ​​​​​​​graceful and of deadly charms, ​​​​​​​who betrays nations with her whorings, ​​​​​​​and peoples with her charms. ​​​
