THE NEW TESTAMENT2

THE REV­E­LA­TION OF ST JOHN THE DIVINE - CHAP­TER SEVENTEEN3

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

A And there came one of the seven an­gels, which had the seven vials, and talked with me, say­ing unto me: come I will shew thee the judge­ment of the great whore that sit­teth upon many wa­ters, with whom have com­mit­ted for­ni­ca­tion the kings of the earth, so that the in­hab­iters of the earth, are drunken with the wine of her for­ni­ca­tion. And he car­ried me away into the wilder­ness in the spirit.

And I saw a woman sit upon a rose-coloured beast full of names of blas­phemy which had ten horns. And the woman was ar­rayed in pur­ple and rose-colour, and decked with gold, pre­cious stone, and pearls, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abom­i­na­tions B and filth­i­ness of her for­ni­ca­tion. And in her forehead was a name written, a mystery, great Baby­lon the mother of whore­dom, and abom­i­na­tions of the earth. And I saw the wife drunk with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the wit­nesses of Je­sus. And when I saw her, I won­dered with great mar­vel.

And the angel said unto me: where­fore mar­vellest thou? I will shew thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that beareth her, which hath seven heads, and ten horns. The beast that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall as­cend out of the bot­tom­less pit, and shall go into perdi­tion, and they that dwell on the earth shall won­der (whose names are not written in the book of life from he be­gin­ning of the world) when they be­hold the beast that was, and is not. And here is a mind that hath wis­dom.

C The seven heads are seven moun­tains, on which the woman sit­teth: they are also seven kings. Five are fallen, and one is, and an­other is not yet come. When he cometh he must con­tinue a space. And the beast that was, and is not, is even the eighth, and is one of the seven, and shall go into de­struc­tion. And the ten horns which thou seest, are ten kings, which have re­ceived no king­dom, but shall re­ceive power as kings at one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall fight with the lamb, and the lamb shall over­come them: For he is lord of lords, and king of kings: and they that are on his side, are called, and cho­sen and faith­ful.

D And he said unto me: the wa­ters which thou sawest, where the whore sit­teth, are peo­ple, and folk, and na­tions, and tongues. And the ten horns, which thou sawest upon the beast, are they that shall hate the whore, and shall make her des­o­late, and naked, and shall eat their†† flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts, to ful­fil his will, and to do with one con­sent, for to give her king­dom unto the beast, un­til the words of God be ful­filled. And the woman which thou sawest, is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
