1After this I heard what sounded like a huge crowd in heaven. They said, "Hallelujah! The salvation and glory and power of our God! 2His judgments are true and just, because he judged the great prostitute, who ruined the earth by her whoring, and he exacted the penalty for the blood of his servants from her hand." 3Then they said a second time, "Hallelujah! Smoke goes up from her forever and always." 4The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God, who is seated on the throne, and they said, "Amen. Hallelujah!" 5Then a voice went out from the throne and said, "Praise our God, all you his servants, and you who fear him, both small and great." 6And I heard something that sounded like a huge crowd, like rushing water and powerful thunder. They said, "Hallelujah! The Lord our God, the Almighty, exercised his royal power! 7Let us rejoice and celebrate, and give him the glory, for the wedding day of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 8She was given fine, pure white linen to wear, for the fine linen is the saints’ acts of justice."
