Revelation 18:9-10

Context

18:9 Then 1  the kings of the earth who committed immoral acts with her and lived in sensual luxury 2  with her will weep and wail for her when they see the smoke from the fire that burns her up. 3  18:10 They will stand a long way off because they are afraid of her torment, and will say,

“Woe, woe, O great city,

Babylon the powerful city!

For in a single hour your doom 4  has come!”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the vision.

2 tn On the term ἐστρηνίασεν (estrhniasen) BDAG 949 s.v. στρηνιάω states, “live in luxury, live sensually Rv 18:7. W. πορνεύειν vs. 9.”

3 tn Grk “from the burning of her.” For the translation “the smoke from the fire that burns her up,” see L&N 14.63.

4 tn Or “judgment,” condemnation,” “punishment.” BDAG 569 s.v. κρίσις 1.a.β states, “The word oft. means judgment that goes against a person, condemnation, and the sentence that follows…ἡ κ. σου your judgment Rv 18:10.”
