Hallelujah! God has judged the great whore

1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

I heard voices in heaven saying,


2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

The great whore who corrupted the world

with her fornication has been judged by God.

3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

Again they said, "Hallelujah!",

and smoke rose up forever.

4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

And the 24 elders and four beasts

fell down and worshiped God, saying,

Amen. Hallelujah!
