“Babylon has fallen,(A) has fallen.
All the images of her gods
have been shattered on the ground.”(B)

Babylon was a gold cup in the Lord’s hand,(A)

It has fallen,[a]
Babylon the Great has fallen!(A)
She has become a dwelling for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
and a haunt[b] for every unclean and despicable beast.[c](B)
