Væ Babylon,
civitas magna
quædicit in corde suo:
Sede, o regina
et vidua non sum
et luctum non videbo.

Ideo in uno die venient,
plagæ multæ:
et mors et luctus et fames;
et igne comburetur.

Væ, civitas illa magna Babylon,
fortis quoniam una hora
veniet iudicium tuum.

Cecidit Babylon magna
et facta est habitatio dæmoniorum;
quia de vino iræ
fornicationis eius
biberunt omnes gentes,
et reges terræ
cum illa fornicati sunt.

Væ Babylon
civitas magna.
