New International Version
Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’[a](A)
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;(B)
5 for her sins are piled up to heaven,(C)
and God has remembered(D) her crimes.
6 Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back(E) double(F) for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.(G)
7 Give her as much torment and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.(H)
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;[b]
I will never mourn.’(I)
8 Therefore in one day(J) her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,(K)
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
