    King James Bible - Revelation 18:23

    And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

    World English Bible

    The
    light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 18:23

    And the
    light of the lamp shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for all nations have been deceived by thy enchantments.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And the
    light of a candle shall shine no more in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:23

    y luz de lmpara no alumbrar ms en ti; y voz de esposo y de esposa no ser ms oída en ti: cuyos mercaderes eran príncipes de la tierra: en cuyas hechicerías todos los gentiles han errado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 18:23

    Verse 23. By thy sorceries]
    Political arts, state tricks, counterfeit miracles, and deceptive manoeuvres of every kind. This may be spoken of many great cities of the world, which still continue to flourish!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. And the
    light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee , etc.] Either for common use, or at feasts, or at marriages, which being kept at night, required candies, lamps, or torches; this shows that Babylon, or Rome, shall be deprived of everything, even of the least thing that is comfortable in life; (see Jeremiah 25:10) this will be a just punishment upon her for her abuse of this blessing of life; so where wax candles in great numbers have been burning in the daytime, there will not be so much as a single candle to give light in the night; and where candles have been lighted up for the dead, there will not be one for the use of the living: and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee : there will be no marrying, nor giving in marriage; no procreation of children, or propagation of posterity, in this place; which denotes the utter extirpation of the inhabitants of it; the phrases are taken from ( Jeremiah 7:34 16:19) ( Jeremiah 25:10,11) and this will be in righteous retaliation for the prohibition of marriage; which God has instituted, and is honourable, ( 1 Timothy 4:2) the reasons of Babylon's destruction follow: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth : in allusion to the merchants of Tyre, said to be princes, ( Isaiah 23:8) for by trading and dealing in the wares and merchandise of Rome, persons of mean extract, and of very low circumstances of life, have grown exceeding rich, and have equalled the princes of the earth; as for instance, Cardinal Wolsey here in England, a butcher's son at Ipswich; and on the other hand, the princes and great men of the earth have become Rome's merchants, and have thought it an high honour to get a cardinal's hat, as the Cardinals Albertus duke of Austria, Bourbon, Pool, and others, mentioned by Brightman: for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived ; meaning her false doctrines, traditions, idolatry, superstition, and will worship, with which, as another Jezebel, she has bewitched, allured, and deceived the nations of the empire, and the kings thereof, ( Revelation 18:3).

    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 __________________________________________________________________
