21 Then a powerful angel picked up a large stone, like one used for grinding grain, and threw it into the sea. He said:

“In the same way, the great city of Babylon will be thrown down,
    and it will never be found again.
22 The music of people playing harps and other instruments, flutes, and trumpets,
    will never be heard in you again.
No workman doing any job
    will ever be found in you again.
The sound of grinding grain
    will never be heard in you again.
23 The light of a lamp
    will never shine in you again,
and the voices of a bridegroom and bride
    will never be heard in you again.
Your merchants were the world’s great people,
    and all the nations were tricked by your magic.
