Revelation 18:16


16 And [kai] saying, [lego] Alas, [ouai] alas, [ouai] that great [megas] city, [polis] that was clothed in [periballo] fine linen, [bussinos] and [kai] purple, [porphurous] and [kai] scarlet, [kokkinos] and [kai] decked [chrusoo] with [en] gold, [chrusos] and [kai] precious [timios] stones, [lithos] and [kai] pearls [margarites]! KJV-Interlinear


16 saying,' Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; NASB


The weeping and mourning are not for Babylon, but for themselves. The merchants, the consumers, the leadership, all people great and small, will be thinking only of themselves, of their loss, of the way things were, but are now no more.

But their idea of the way things were is a short memory version of how things were (how they wanted things to be for their own benefit) during the reign of the anti-christ, earlier on, but lacking the reality of how things really were as the economies of the world declined.

Babylon is described from their perspective. They see the outer presentation of Babylon. Earlier the bible described the inner Babylon.

The outer is clothed in all manner of enticements and things of beauty and desirable.

The inner is the working of the prostitute, and totally corrupt.

The outer is made up of things that people strive for, fine clothes, jewelry, expressions of riches and wealth. And from those things, the idea of security and happiness.

But surrounded by those things, is an inner soul of corruption. You can wrap fine things around a rotten piece of meat, but they will not keep it fresh nor make it fresh. The rot continues and eventually even the wrappings fall to the ground.

In contrast, Bible doctrine, a thing which you cannot see, but is manifested in words and thought, is able to accomplish everything that the world cannot accomplish.

Doctrine can make pure that which was impure, can make secure that which was insecure, can make wealthy that which was poor, can make fulfilling that which was empty.
