 Revised Standard Version<< Revelation:17 >>Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters, The Great Harlot and the Beast Re.17.1-18Καὶ ἦλθεν εἷς ἐκ τῶν ἑπτὰ ἀγγέλων τῶν ἐχόντων τὰς ἑπτὰ φιάλας, καὶ ἐλάλησεν μετ' ἐμοῦ λέγων, Δεῦρο, δείξω σοι τὸ κρίμα τῆς πόρνης τῆς μεγάλης τῆς καθημένης ἐπὶ ὑδάτω ν πολλῶν,
2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk."  μεθ' ἧς ἐπόρνευσαν οἱ βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς, καὶ ἐμεθύσθησαν οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν ἐκ τοῦ οἰνου τῆς πορνείας αὐτῆς.
3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns.  καὶ ἀπήνεγκέν με εἰς ἐρημον ἐν πνεύματι. καὶ εἶδον γυναῖκα καθημένην ἐπὶ θηρίον κόκκινον, γέμον[τα] ὀνόματα βλασφημίας, ἐχων κεφαλὰς ἑπτὰ καὶ κέρατα δέκα.
4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication;  καὶ ἡ γυνὴ ἦν περιβεβλημένη πορφυροῦν καὶ κόκκινον, καὶ κεχρυσωμένη χρυσίῳ καὶ λίθῳ τιμίῳ καὶ μαργαρίταις, ἐχουσα ποτήριον χρυσοῦν ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτῆς γέμον βδελυγμάτων καὶ τὰ ἀκάθαρτα τῆς πορνείας αὐτῆς,
5 and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth's abominations."  καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ μέτωπον αὐτῆς ὀνομα γεγραμμένον, μυστήριον, Βαβυλὼν ἡ μεγάλη, ἡ μήτηρ τῶν πορνῶν καὶ τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῆς γῆς.
6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.

When I saw her I marveled greatly.

 καὶ εἶδον τὴν γυναῖκα μεθύουσαν ἐκ τοῦ αἱματος τῶν ἀγίων καὶ ἐκ τοῦ αἱματος τῶν μαρΤύρων Ἰησοῦ.

Καὶ ἐθαύμασα ἰδὼν αὐτὴν θαῦμα μέγα.

7 But the angel said to me, "Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her.  καὶ εἶπέν μοι ὁ ἀγγελος, Διὰ τί ἐθαύμασας; ἐγὼ ἐρῶ σοι τὸ μυστήριον τῆς γυναικὸς καὶ τοῦ θηρίου τοῦ βαστάζοντος αὐτήν, τοῦ ἐχοντος τὰς ἑπτὰ κεφαλὰς καὶ τὰ δέκα κέρατα·
8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will marvel to behold the beast, becaus  τὸ θηρίον ὃ εἶδες ἦν καὶ οὐκ ἐστιν, καὶ μέλλει ἀναβαίνειν ἐκ τῆς ἀβύσσου, καὶ εἰς ἀπώλειαν ὑπάγει· καὶ θαυμασθήσονται οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὧν οὐ γέγραπται το ; ὀνομα ἐπὶ τὸ βιβλίον τῆς ζωῆς ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου, βλεπόντων τὸ θηρίον ὅτι ἦν καὶ οὐκ
9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;  ὧδε ὁ νοῦς ὁ ἐχων σοφίαν. αἱ ἑπτὰ κεφαλαὶ ἑπτὰ ὀρη εἰσίν, ὁπου ἡ γυνὴ κάθηται ἐπ' αὐτῶν. καὶ βασιλεῖς ἑπτά εἰσιν·
10 they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he comes he must remain only a little while.  οἱ πέντε ἐπεσαν, ὁ εἷς ἐστιν, ὁ ἀλλος οὐπω ἦλθεν, καὶ ὁταν ἐλθῃ ὀλίγον αὐτὸν δεῖ μεῖναι.
11 As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to perdition.  καὶ τὸ θηρίον ὃ ἦν καὶ οὐκ ἐστιν, καὶ αὐτὸς ὀγδοός ἐστιν καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἑπτά ἐστιν, καὶ εἰς ἀπώλειαν ὑπάγει.
12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.  καὶ τὰ δέκα κέρατα ἂ εἶδες δέκα βασιλεῖς εἰσιν, οἱτινες βασιλείαν οὐπω ἐλαβον, ἀλλὰ ἐξουσίαν ὡς βασιλεῖς μίαν ὡραν λαμβάνουσιν μετὰ τοῦ θηρίου.
13 These are of one mind and give over their power and authority to the beast;  οὗτοι μίαν γνώμην ἐχουσιν, καὶ τὴν δύναμιν καὶ ἐξουσίαν αὐτῶν τῷ θηρίῳ διδόασιν.
14 they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful."  οὗτοι μετὰ τοῦ ἀρνίου πολεμήσουσιν, καὶ τὸ ἀρνίον νικήσει αὐτούς, ὅτι κύριος κυρίων ἐστὶν καὶ βασιλεὺς βασιλέων, καὶ οἱ μετ' αὐτοῦ κλητοὶ καὶ ἐκλεκτοὶ καὶ πιστοί.
15 And he said to me, "The waters that you saw, where the harlot is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.  Καὶ λέγει μοι, Τὰ ὑδατα ἂ εἶδες, οὗ ἡ πόρνη κάθηται, λαοὶ καὶ ὀχλοι εἰσὶν καὶ ἐθνη καὶ γλῶσσαι.
16 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the harlot; they will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,  καὶ τὰ δέκα κέρατα ἂ εἶδες καὶ τὸ θηρίον, οὗτοι μισήσουσιν τὴν πόρνην, καὶ ἠρημωμένην ποιήσουσιν αὐτὴν καὶ γυμνήν, καὶ τὰς σάρκας αὐτῆς φάγονται, καὶ αὐτὴν κατακαύσουσιν ἐν πυρί·
17 for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and giving over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.  ὁ γὰρ θεὸς ἐδωκεν εἰς τὰς καρδίας αὐτῶν ποιῆσαι τὴν γνώμην αὐτοῦ, καὶ ποιῆσαι μίαν γνώμην καὶ δοῦναι τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτῶν τῷ θηρίῳ, ἀχρι τελεσθήσονται οἱ λόγοι τοῦ θεοῦ.
18 And the woman that you saw is the great city which has dominion over the kings of the earth."  καὶ ἡ γυνὴ ἣν εἶδες ἐστιν ἡ πόλις ἡ μεγάλη ἡ ἐχουσα βασιλείαν ἐπὶ τῶν βασιλέων τῆς γῆς.
