21 Then a powerful angel picked up a stone that was like a large millstone. He threw it into the sea and said,

“The important city Babylon will be thrown down with the same force.
    It will never be found again.
22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters
    will never be heard in it again.
A skilled craftsman—regardless of the type of craft—
    will never be found in it again.
The sound of a millstone
    will never be heard in it again.
23 Light from lamps
    will never shine in it again.
Voices of brides and grooms
    will never be heard in it again.
Its merchants were the important people of the world,
    because all the nations were deceived by its witchcraft.
