    :9

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:18

    y viendo el humo de su incendio, dieron voces, diciendo: ¿Cul era semejante a esta gran ciudad?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 18:18

    Verse 18. What city is like unto this great city!] Viz. in magnitude,
    power, and luxury.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And
    cried when they saw the smoke of her burning , etc.] (See Gill on Revelation 18:9) saying, what city is like unto this great city ? as before for magnificence and grandeur, so now for sorrow, desolation, and ruin; nor was any city like it for power and authority, for pride and luxury, for idolatry and superstition, blasphemy and impenitence; the like the sailors say of Tyre, ( Ezekiel 27:30) from whence this and other expressions are borrowed in this lamentation.

    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.
