As this I saw assorted angel coming down from illusion, having high authority, and the earth became illumined by his glory. He cried out in a distinct voice: "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the high. She has become a haunt for demons. She is a lane for every seedy spirit, a lane for every seedy bird, (a lane for every seedy) and sickening (beast). For all the nations command high the wine of her inappropriate part. The kings of the earth had intercourse with her, and the merchants of the earth grew unqualified from her aggravate for ease."
