21 Then a mighty angel picked up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea,[a] saying:

“So shall Babylon, the great city,
    be thrown down with violence,
    never to be found again!
22 And the sound of harpists and musicians,
    flautists and trumpeters,
    shall never be heard in you again![b]
And the craftsman of any craft
    shall never be found in you again!
And the sound of a mill
    shall never be heard in you again!
23 And the light of a lamp
    shall never shine in you again!
And the voice of the bridegroom and bride
    shall never be heard in you again![c]
For your businessmen were the tycoons of the world,
    for all the nations were deceived by your sorcery![d]
24 And in her was found the blood of the prophets and kedoshim
    and all those slaughtered on the earth.”
