21 Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a great millstone, and hurled it into the sea, saying,

“With violence like this
will the great city Bavel
be hurled down,
never to be found again!

22 “The sound of harpists and musicians,
flute-players and trumpeters
    will never again be heard in you.
No worker of any trade
    will ever again be found in you,
the sound of a mill
    will never again be heard in you,
23 the light of a lamp
    will never again shine in you,
the voice of bridegroom and bride
    will never again be heard in you.

“For your businessmen were the most powerful on earth,
all the nations were deceived by your magic spell.
