21 Then (A)a mighty angel (B)took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying,

“So will Babylon (C)the great city be thrown down with violence,
    and will be found no more;
22 and (D)the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters,
    will be heard in you no more,
and a craftsman of any craft
    will be found in you no more,
and (E)the sound of the mill
    will be heard in you no more,
23 and the light of a lamp
    will shine in you no more,
and (F)the voice of bridegroom and bride
    will be heard in you no more,
for (G)your merchants were the great ones of the earth,
    and all nations were deceived (H)by your sorcery.
