Revelation 18

The fall of the great city is sudden and complete. There are no workers, no children and no workers left. The smoke of her destruction ascends to heaven for all to see.

Three groups mourn over her, all related to their economic loss:
  • Kings, with whom she was adulterous.
  • Merchants, whom she had made rich.
  • Sailors.
They watch from a distance because of her torment. The export list of this city is long and impressive.
