    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:8

    Y otro ngel le sigui, diciendo: Ya es caída, ya es caída Babilonia, aquella gran ciudad, porque ella ha dado a beber a todos los gentiles del vino de la ira de su fornicacin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 14:8

    Verse 8.
    Babylon is fallen, is fallen] This is generally understood to be a prediction concerning Rome; and it is certain that Rome, in the rabbinical writings, is termed Babylon.

    That great city] Among the same writers this city is styled atbr atrq karta rabbetha, the great city; and atbr ymwr Romi rabbetha, the great Rome. But which Rome is meant? Pagan or Papal Rome? Some parts of the description apply best to the former.

    The wine of the wrath of her fornication.] There is an allusion here to a custom of impure women, who give philtres or love potions to those whom they wish to seduce and bind to their will; and these potions are generally of an intoxicating nature, greatly inflaming the blood, and disturbing the intellect.

    Fornication and adultery are frequently used in Scripture as emblems of idolatry and false worship.

    The wine of the wrath is another expression for the envenomed or poisoned cup given by such women.

    No nation of the earth spread their idolatries so far as the ancient Romans; they were as extensive as their conquests. And papal Rome has been not less active in disseminating her superstitions. She has given her rituals, but not the everlasting Gospel, to most nations of the earth.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. And there followed another angel , etc.] A second, as the Alexandrian copy, the Complutensian edition, and the Syriac version add; and the Arabic version reads, and the second angel followed; another set of Gospel ministers, who will immediately follow upon the former, proclaiming the fall of Babylon, which will be brought about through the preaching of the everlasting Gospel. Some think the Waldenses and Albigenses are here designed, who gave a great blow to Babylon, and laid a foundation for her ruin. Others have thought that Luther, and the reformers of his times, are intended, who gave a deadly blow to Babylon, and she has been falling ever since: but to me it appears, that a set of ministers in the spiritual reign of Christ are meant, who will not only signify the fall of Babylon to be certain, and near at hand, but will live to see and declare her actual fall, as follows: saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city ; which is to be understood not of the world in general, which will not now be come to an end, for all nations of the world are distinguished from this Babylon in the next clause, and is only represented as a city, though a great one; nor of Babylon in Chaldea, which was fallen many hundreds of years before this vision; nor is there any likelihood of its being restored, nor any reason to believe that it will ever more be the seat of empire over all the nations and kings of the earth, as the Babylon mentioned in this book is, ( Revelation 17:5,18) though undoubtedly the allusion is to that Babylon, and the very words are used which express the fall of it, and are taken from it; (see Isaiah 21:9) but this is to be understood of Rome, which all along in this book is called the great city; (see Revelation 11:8 16:19 17:18) and not of Rome Pagan, for that is fallen already; and the account of the fall of that is given before, at the opening of the sixth seal, and the casting the dragon out of heaven, upon the war there, between Michael and him, though Mr.

    Daubuz is of opinion that this is here meant; but of Rome Papal, called Babylon the great, ( Revelation 16:5) ( Revelation 18:2) and so the Alexandrian copy, the Vulgate Latin, Syriac and Arabic versions, read here; and the Romish antichrist is so called, because that city was famous for its pride and haughtiness, for its tyranny and cruelty, and for its idolatry; and indeed its name, which signifies confusion, well agrees with the Papacy, which is a confused mixture of Judaism, Paganism, and Christianity: so Rome is called Babel in some ancient writings of the Jews f351 , where some copies read Babel, others read Rome; and Tertullian, who wrote long before the appearance of the Romish antichrist, says f352 , with our John, Babylon is a figure of the Roman city: and of this it is said, that it is fallen, is fallen; which words are repeated for the certain confirmation of it, as matter of fact; for the fall of antichrist will certainly be in the spiritual reign of Christ, in the Philadelphian church state; (see Gill on Revelation 3:9) now will Babylon come in remembrance before God, and he will pour out the vials of his wrath upon her, and will give men an aversion to her; and through the preaching of the Gospel she will fall, just as the walls of Jericho fell at the sounding of the rams' horns: the reason of which fall will be, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication : by her fornication is meant the idolatry of the church of Rome; so the idolatry of Israel and Judah is often expressed in the Old Testament by fornication and whoredoms; (see Jeremiah 3:6 Ezekiel 23:2,3) and the wine of it designs the alluring methods used to draw into it; such as the riches and honours, and pleasures of this world, promised to men, and the great appearances of holiness and religion, the deceivableness of unrighteousness, the miracles, signs, and lying wonders done by them, by which men are made sottish and stupid, and induced to believe a lie; just as wine intoxicates, and inclines and excites to lust: and by the wrath of it is meant either the heat of lust unto it, or the wrath of God against them which is stirred up by it; and now the aggravation of her sin is, that she not only drinks of this wine herself, or commits idolatry, being instigated to it by the allurements of it, though she hereby incurs the displeasure and wrath of God, but she draws all nations into the same idolatrous practices.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-13 - The progress of the Reformation appears to be here set forth. The fou proclamations are plain in their meaning; that all Christians may be encouraged, in the time of trial, to be faithful to their Lord. The gospel is the great means whereby men are brought to fear God, and to give glory to him. The preaching of the everlasting gospel shakes the foundations of antichrist in the world, and hastens its downfall. If an persist in being subject to the beast, and in promoting his cause, the must expect to be for ever miserable in soul and body. The believer is to venture or suffer any thing in obeying the commandments of God, an professing the faith of Jesus. May God bestow this patience upon us Observe the description of those that are and shall be blessed: such a die in the Lord; die in the cause of Christ, in a state of union with Christ; such as are found in Christ when death comes. They rest from all sin, temptation, sorrow, and persecution; for there the wicke cease from troubling, there the weary are at rest. Their works follo them: do not go before as their title, or purchase, but follow them a proofs of their having lived and died in the Lord: the remembrance of them will be pleasant, and the reward far above all their services an sufferings. This is made sure by the testimony of the Spirit witnessing with their spirits, and the written word.
