    VERSE (16) -
    :10,11; 17:4 Lu 16:19 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:16

    Y diciendo: ¡Ay, ay, aquella gran ciudad, que estaba vestida de lino finísimo, y de escarlata, y de grana, y estaba dorada con oro, y adornada de piedras preciosas y de perlas!

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 18:16

    Verse 16.
    Clothed in fine linen, and purple, &c.] The verb periballesqai, which we here translate clothed, signifies often to abound, be enriched, laden with, and is so used by the best Greek writers; see many examples in Kypke. These articles are not to be considered here as personal ornaments, but as articles of trade or merchandise, in which this city trafficked.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. And saying, alas, alas! that great city , etc.]. Using the same
    words the kings of the earth do, ( Revelation 18:10) only adding, suitable to their characters as merchants, and the things they traded in with her, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls ; (see Gill on Revelation 18:12) (see Gill on Revelation 17:4), see also ( Ezekiel 27:32).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-19 - The mourners had shared
    Babylon's sensual pleasures, and gained by he wealth and trade. The kings of the earth, whom she flattered int idolatry, allowing them to be tyrannical over their subjects, whil obedient to her; and the merchants, those who trafficked for he indulgences, pardons, and honours; these mourn. Babylon's friend partook her sinful pleasures and profits, but are not willing to shar her plagues. The spirit of antichrist is a worldly spirit, and tha sorrow is a mere worldly sorrow; they do not lament for the anger of God, but for the loss of outward comforts. The magnificence and riche of the ungodly will avail them nothing, but will render the vengeanc harder to be borne. The spiritual merchandise is here alluded to, when not only slaves, but the souls of men, are mentioned as articles of commerce, to the destroying the souls of millions. Nor has this bee peculiar to the Roman antichrist, and only her guilt. But le prosperous traders learn, with all their gains, to get the unsearchabl riches of Christ; otherwise; even in this life, they may have to mour that riches make to themselves wings and fly away, and that all the fruits their souls lusted after, are departed from them. Death, at an rate, will soon end their commerce, and all the riches of the ungodl will be exchanged, not only for the coffin and the worm, but for the fire that cannot be quenched.
