    VERSE (17) -
    :10 Isa 47:9 Jer 51:8 La 4:6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:17

    Porque, ¡en una hora han sido desoladas tantas riquezas! Y todo patrn, y todos los que viajan en naves, y marineros, y todos los que trabajan en el mar, se estuvieron lejos;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 18:17

    Verse 17. Every shipmaster]
    Captains of vessels; some think pilots are meant, and this is most likely to be the meaning of the original word kubernhthv. This description appears to be at least partly taken from Ezek. xxvii. 26-28.

    And all the company in ships] kai pav epi twn ploiwn o omilov? The crowd or passengers aboard. But the best MSS, and versions have kai pav o epi topon plewn, those who sail from place to place, or such as stop at particular places on the coast, without performing the whole voyage. This sufficiently marks the traffic on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Some might debark (in sailing from Rome) at the island of Sicily, others at different ports in Greece; some at Corinth, others at Crete, or the various islands of the AEgean Sea; some at Rhodes, Pamphylia, &c., &c.; as in those times in which the compass was unknown, every voyage was performed coastwise, always keeping, if possible, within sight of the land.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought , etc.] That is, in a very short time, expressing the suddenness and speediness of Rome's destruction, the quick dispatch and expedition that will be made in it, by the instruments of it, as in ( Revelation 18:10). Rome was always famous for its great wealth and riches; the Jews have a saying f420 , that if ten kabs of riches descend into the world, the ancient Romans take nine of them, and the other the whole world: and every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off ; the lamentation of the kings and merchants of the earth being ended, masters of ships, sailors, and seafaring men begin theirs: by ships are meant dioceses, abbeys, priories, and monasteries; and by the masters, or governors of them, bishops, abbots, priors, the heads of monasteries, and of the several orders of the Franciscans, Dominicans, etc. and by all the company in ships, or every shipmate, the fellows that belong to every religious house and order; and by sailors and traders at sea, all such who compass sea and land to make proselytes to the Romish religion, like the Pharisees of old, and who, as they, make them two fold more the children of hell than themselves; and, in general, these traders abroad may design the pope's legates, sent by him into various parts, to collect his revenues, and the Jesuits, who are everywhere sent abroad to sow sedition and false doctrine, and the priests that travel about to sell pardons and indulgences: these stood afar off ; as the kings and merchants before, for fear of sharing in the condemnation and punishment of Babylon; knowing full well that they deserved it, having been associates with her in her crimes.

    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.

    Acts xxvii. 11.

    All the company in ships (pav epi twn ploiwn o omilov). The best texts substitute oJ ejpi topon plewn, that saileth anywhere, lit., saileth to a place. So Rev.

    Trade by sea (thn qalassan ergazontai). Lit., work the sea, like the Latin mare exercent, live by seafaring. Rev., gain their living by sea.
