Revelation 17:5-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

And in her forehead a name was written: a mystery – great babylon, the mother of whoredom and of the abominations of the earth. And I saw the wife drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered with great marvel.

And the angel said to me, Why do you marvel? I will show you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that bears her, which has seven heads and ten horns.
