21 Then a powerful angel picked up a stone like a large stone for grinding grain. The angel threw the stone into the sea and said:

“That is how the great city of Babylon will be thrown down.
    The city will never be found again.
22 The music of people playing harps and other instruments, flutes and trumpets,
    will never be heard in you again.
No workman doing any job
    will ever be found in you again.
The sound of grinding grain
    will never be heard in you again.
23 The light of a lamp
    will never shine in you again.
The voices of a bridegroom and bride
    will never be heard in you again.
Your businessmen were the world’s great men.
    All the nations were tricked by your magic.
