    VERSE (21) -
    Ex 15:5 Ne 9:11 Jer 51:63,64

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:21

    Y un fuerte ngel tom una piedra como una gran muela de molino, y la ech en el mar, diciendo: Con tanto ímpetu ser derribada Babilonia, aquella gran ciudad, y nunca jams ser hallada.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 18:21

    Verse 21. Thus with
    violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down] This action is finely and forcibly expressed by the original words: outwv ormhmati blhqhsetai babulwn h megalh poliv. The millstone will in falling have not only an accelerated force from the law of gravitation, but that force will be greatly increased by the projectile force impressed upon it by the power of the destroying angel.

    Shall be found no more at all.] In her government, consequence, or influence. This is true of ancient Babylon; we are not certain even of the place where it stood. It is also true of Jerusalem; her government, consequence, and influence are gone. It is not true of Rome pagan; nor, as yet, of Rome papal: the latter still exists, and the former is most intimately blended with it; for in her religions service Rome papal has retained her language, and many of her heathen temples has she dedicated to saints real or reputed, and incorporated many of her superstitions and absurdities in a professedly Christian service. It is true also that many idols are now restored under the names of Christian saints!


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. And a mighty angel , etc.] Not Christ, nor one of the ministering spirits, but some man or set of men, perhaps the same with him in ( Revelation 18:1) took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea ; just as Jeremiah took a stone and bound it to his book after he had read it, and cast it into the river Euphrates, as a sign and token of the destruction of old Babylon, ( Jeremiah 51:63,64 Exodus 15:5 Nehemiah 9:11) saying, thus with violence shall that great city be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all ; which is expressive of the utter destruction of Rome, and of the violence, force, and power with which it will be destroyed, and of the suddenness and swiftness of its destruction, and of the irrecoverableness of its state and condition.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-24 - That which is matter of rejoicing to the
    servants of God on earth, i matter of rejoicing to the angels in heaven. The apostles, who ar honoured and daily worshipped at Rome in an idolatrous manner, wil rejoice in her fall. The fall of Babylon was an act of God's justice And because it was a final ruin, this enemy should never molest the any more; of this they were assured by a sign. Let us take warning from the things which brought others to destruction, and let us set ou affections on things above, when we consider the changeable nature of earthly things __________________________________________________________________
