The Passion Translation
20 Rejoice over her, O heaven
You apostles and prophets and holy believers, rejoice!
For on your behalf
God pronounced the judgment against her
that she wanted to bring upon you!
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone, like a huge millstone, and threw it into the sea, saying:
“With this kind of sudden violence, the great city Babylon
will be thrown down and exist no more.
22 The music of harps, minstrels, flutes, and trumpets[a]
will never grace your city again.
No artisan of any trade will ever be found in you again,
and the noise of factories[b] falls silent.
