Revelation 19:1-3


19:1 After these things I heard what sounded like the loud voice of a vast throng in heaven, saying,

“Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,

19:2 because his judgments are true and just. 1 

For he has judged 2  the great prostitute

who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality,

and has avenged the blood of his servants 3  poured out by her own hands!” 4 

19:3 Then 5  a second time the crowd shouted, “Hallelujah!” The smoke rises from her forever and ever. 6 

1 tn Compare the similar phrase in Rev 16:7.

2 tn Or “has punished.” See BDAG 568 s.v. κρίνω 5.b.α, describing the OT background which involves both the vindication of the innocent and the punishment of the guilty.

3 tn See the note on the word “servants” in 1:1.

4 tn Grk “from her hand” (referring to her responsibility in causing the blood of God’s followers to be shed).

5 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence within the narrative.

6 tn Or “her smoke ascends forever and ever.”
