1 After these [things] I heard [something] like the loud sound of a great crowd in heaven saying, "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, 2 because his judgments [are] true and righteous, because he has passed judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and has avenged the blood of his slaves {shed by} her hand!" 3 And a second time they said, "Hallelujah!" And her smoke goes up {forever and ever}.
