Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
At the sound of the cry of your pilots the countryside shakes,
and down from their ships come all who handle the oar. The mariners and all the pilots of the sea stand on the land
But the centurion paid more attention to the pilot and to the owner of the ship than to what Paul said.
And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.
And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,
They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, "Alas! Alas! You great city, you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come."
And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and mourned, crying out, "Alas, alas, for the great city where all who had ships at sea grew rich by her wealth! For in a single hour she has been laid waste.
