“The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,”
King James Version (KJV)
Re 18:15-19 The merchants of these things . . . shall stand afar off. The lamentation of the kings over the fall of the city has been given in Re 18:9-14. The lamentation of the merchants is now given. They are also represented as standing afar off. With them join the shipmasters and mariners who have been engaged in her trade. These all mourn because their profits from her are brought to an end.
