17:1 Then one of the seven Messengers who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
17:2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the midbar: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with zahav and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
17:5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BAVEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE eretz.
17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the Kiddishim, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yeshua (ישוע): and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
17:7 But the messenger said to me, "Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Sefer haChayim from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
17:9 "Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
17:10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.
17:11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten melechim, which have received no malkut as yet; but receive power as melechim one hour with the beast.
17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast.
17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Adon ha adonim, and Melekh ha melechim: and they that are with Him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.
17:15 Then he said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
17:16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
17:17 For Elohim (אלהים) has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until Divrei Elohim (אלהים) are fulfilled.
17:18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth."
