The Sinai GOG of Satan, is just that, the synagogue of the Blasphemous, Murdering, Thieving, Pillaging, devil worshipper’s of the earth and their Proselytes made two fold the Children of Hell. Here are what the anti-Christ Chabad Lubavitch of Sanhedrin have in store for America and the rest of the True Christ faithful of earth, unto their god of flesh, Lucifer. After all, it is written.
First Law is Courts
One of the most interesting things coming to mind when thinking about unveiling of righteous Mashiach (Messiah – Biblical language translation; may it happen soon, in our days) is definitely all-over-the-world reigning of Seven Laws Code of the peoples of the world – Noah Descendants – with establishment of courts and appointment of judges accompanying it.
It should be done in strict accordance with all nuances of Scripture and they are a lot. Let’s see what’s written about that in corresponding sources, such as RAMBAM‘s “Mishne Tora”, for example. It’s written there (“Mishne Tora” Religious Code, Laws of Kings and Their Wars 9:14):
(Freemason’s of American Bar Association, the Bar Mitzvah ……RP)
“How is establishment of courts and appointment of judges Law observed? The peoples of the world must appoint judges and deans for each region and each town so that they judged on the basis of Six undermentioned Laws and warned people from infringement upon them. And the one who breaks one of those Seven Laws is to be sentenced to thedeath penalty with sword.
(KJV REV 20:8
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years…..)
That is the one who worshipped idols, and the one who cursed the name of G-d, and the one who deliberately killed somebody, and the one who had banned sexual affair by one of six appropriate ways, and the one who robbed, even at the rate of fewer than the smallest coin value, and the one who ate flesh of any size from living creature, and the one who saw another infringe upon one of these Laws but didn’t bring him to the court – those are to be sentenced to the death penalty with sword. The capital sentence can be passed on the testimony of a single witness, by a single judge, and without the warning about punishment, and even on the testimony of relatives; only not by the testimony of woman, and woman may not be judge.”
This is a brief description of the only imperative Law – an attentive reader could already notice the other Six Laws have a prohibitive character. It’s not occasionally that Courts take first position among Seven Laws, coz without Courts’ establishment it’s just impossible to create an appropriate system of control for observation of the other Six Laws.
Now let’s approach Biblical source of all practical laws – Babylonian Talmud. It’s written there (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 56b):
“As it’s commanded to Israel to establish Batei-Dinin (courts – Biblical language translation) in each region and in each town, as it’s commanded to the peoples of the world to establish courts in each region and in each town.”
RASHI‘s comment explains Talmud means appointment of judges when speaking about establishment of courts for Israel. Tora‘s verses are adduced as a proof (Dvarim 16:18): “You shall set up judges and law enforcement officials for yourself in all your gateways.” Then RASHI says this Law refers to the peoples of the world as well since it’s written in Scripture (there): “…and they shall judge the people with righteous judgement.” But how is it commanded to Israel to appoint judges? RAMBAM writes (Sefer Hamitzvot, Imperative Commandment 176): “This is an imperative to appoint judges and law enforcement officials who will ensure observation of Tora’s laws, returning those stumbled into true way, directing people to good deeds and warning them from bad deeds. And they will set up fences guarding against infringements, so that following after Tora’s imperatives and prohibitions would not be defined by world-outlook of each separate person. And also law enforcement officials and inspectors who accomplish supervision in public places and control over financial operations so that there would be no lawlessness in the smallest deals.”
According to RAMBAM, the Law is being observed if judges are appointed and can judge on the basis of Six Laws. But Nahmanides (RAMBAN) writes in his comment on weekly Tora’s section Vayishlach, that, besides very judges, peoples of the world must establish courts by law branches – that is courts which will be occupied with hearing of cases referred to theft, fraud, oppression of hired worker, his wages, taking property for keeping, sexual violence and seduction, causing of property damage, arguments between lender and debtor, buying-selling deals and the like – in accordance with how it’s commanded to Israel about those courts. And the death penalty follows for such infringements like if one stole or delayed another’s wages, raped or seduced his neighbor’s daughter, set his sheaf on fire or damaged it.
Why death sentence may be passed by a single judge, and on the testimony of a single witness, without the warning about punishment, and even on the testimony of relatives? And why woman may be neither judge nor witness? The answer can be found in Talmud (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 57b):
“Rav Yehuda said it’s written in Scripture (Bereshit 9:5): But your blood, of your souls, I will demand – that is even by a single judge. From the hand of every beast – that is even without the warning about punishment – I will demand it. And from the hand of man – that is on the testimony of a single witness. From the hand of male – but not from the hand of female. His brother – that is even on the testimony of relatives, as far as rabbiIshmael said – even for fetus. What did he mean? It’s written (Bereshit 9:6): One who sheds the blood of man in man, shall his blood be shed. What is that man who is in man? He said – it’s fetus in mother’s womb.”
Further “Mishne Tora” says (“Mishne Tora” Religious Code, Laws of Kings and Their Wars 10:11 – Maimonides (RAMBAM)):
“Beit-Din (court – Biblical language translation) of Israel is bound to prepare judges for “settlers” (Noah Descendants who have right to live in the Land of Israel – Author’s note), so that they judged according to those Laws and so that world did not perverted. If court of Israel found possible to appoint judges for them from them – appointed. But if it found necessary to appoint judges for them from Israel – done like this.”
RADBEZ‘s comment explains that if they themselves didn’t establish court for themselves, or there appeared to be no person among them who possessed necessary knowledge, then court of Israel must prepare judges for them. Let’s stop here for some more details.
Appointment of Judges
The claimant for the post of judge is taught and then carefully examined for competence in three spheres: Tora’s knowledge in sections corresponding to Bnei Noah, resourcefulness and ability to judge. If he possesses necessary abilities and level of knowledge, then he who before got appointment from the other judge declares to him: “You are appointed judge”.
The man who appointed unqualified judge is equated to him who planted Ashera (a special kind of tree planted by idolaters next to their temples). Coz, like idolatry, infringement upon justice leads to Shechina‘s (G-d’s presence – Biblical language translation) removal. And as the idol is false interpretation of Divine entity, as unexperienced or dishonest judge is some type of caricature on the concept of justice.
Six steps led the throne of king Solomon. They represented six prohibitions:
1. Not to pervert justice;
2. Not to display benevolence to any of litigants;
3. Not to take bribe;
4. Not to plant Ashera – that is not to appoint unworthy judges, coz he who appoints unqualified judge is equated to him who plants Ashera;
5. Not to set up Matzeva (a building for holding of idolatry rites) – that is not to appoint deans who are not G-dfearing people;
6. Not to bring sacrifices of animals with defects – that is to pray with full concentration and learn Tora with diligence. Read here about this.
General Prescriptions for Judges
Judge must imagine there’s a sword over him and Gehinom (hell – Biblical language translation) under him. If he is to judge fairly, neither a sword nor Gehinom will overtake him. But if not – both of them will overtake him.
Judge must not fear to pass wrong sentence coz of scarcity of facts. He is responsible only for the information he was given.
Judge is considered to be G-d’s associate in the act of creation and he is compared to firmament.
Judge can not base his opinion on the opinion of more authoritative judge or majority of judges, asserting: “Their decision is undoubtedly fair”. Judge is bound to understand the case on his own and to decide by conscience even if his decision doesn’t coincide with the decision of majority of judges. And if majority doesn’t agree with his opinion – he’s not responsible for consequences. One may freely act contrary to majority, coz “majority of people go after advice of Yetzer Hara (wicked origin)” (r. Itzhak Petersburger).
When holding trial, the defendant must be approached: “Stand up, so-and-so! And standing listen to the testimony of witnesses. You’re standing not in front of us but in front of Him Who created universe.”
Shotrim (law enforcement officials – Biblical language translation) help judges. They look after the execution of judges’ decisions.
(Reason for 6 pointed Star of Molech on Sheriff’s baliffs….RP)
It’s written in Tora (Shemot 23:7): “Distance yourself from a false matter”. It’s prescribed for the judge to avoid everything that may distort the correct way of his judgement.
It’s very important to prevent unfair judgement. If judge (or witness) is sure one of his colleagues is not honest, then he must refuse from cooperating with him.
If judge has an impression the witnesses lies but he can not prove it, he must leave judicial sitting but not to pass the sentence. He may not say: “I’m not responsible for that, it’s witnesses’ fault”.
Judge who understood he made a mistake must not aspire to find proofs to confirm false statements he made. He must not aspire to avoid confession of his fault.
If he who represents one of litigants is dressed elegant way and the other is dressed in rags, then both of them should be ordered to dress themselves similar way for trial. The objectivity of judge shouldn’t be influenced by their clothes.
The same way they both should be given with the equal quantity of time to give an account of their arguments and objections. It must not happen the way when, G-d forbid, important person is not interrupted and simple person is said: “OK, be shorter”.
It’s written in Tora (Shemot 23:8; Dvarim 16:19): “You shall not accept a bribe”. Judge is prohibited to take gifts from any of litigants. He’s bound to refuse even if the gift was presented with understanding he’s going to judge fairly and even if he has firm intention to judge true inspite of gift. Besides a tangible gift, bribery also includes any service or flattering word, judge can get or hear from any of litigants.
One must be careful and beware of judging the cases in which, according to the Sages’ opinion, judge may be even a little not objective. The nature of bribery is of such kind that it makes judge identify himself with him who gives bribe. Bribe-taker gets one of the following punishments: he either loses clarity of knowledge, or gets poor till he has to become a beggar, or fails eyesight.
Judge must prevent lawlessness in the community, or at least to protest against it. But if he keeps silence when he should protest, he will get Heavens’ punishment.
Judge is prohibited to be cursed or abused.
Report of Witness
Judge is prohibited to hear out the arguments of one of litigants when the other one is absent. Both litigants must be present simultaneously.
Tora says (Shemot 23:7): “Do not kill a truly innocent person or one who has been declared innocent”. If court passed death sentence and then somebody found new arguments in convict’s favour, or if he himself presented some new arguments in his defence – the trial is to be renewed even if sentenced person is already brought to execution’s site. The case is going to be reviewed as many times as essential arguments appear. But if some person is justified by court, his case is not renewed even if new proofs of his guilt are found.
It’s prohibited to execute death sentence based on indirect testimony, even if they are obvious and absolutely undoubted. According to Tora’s law, the sentence can be passed only on the basis of report of witness who watched the crime with his own eyes.
Judge must hear the direct testimony of single person. The testimony of mediators or indirect testimony can not be accepted. If, after careful learning of testimony, judge defines it is truthful, the sentence follows.
The court may not hear out the testimony of villain. That is, for example, someone who lets his cattle graze at someone else’s field, and someone who is professional player of games of chance – according to the list assembled by the Sages.
One may not lay indirect testimony, rumours or written report into the basis of his decision – only oral testimony of eye-witness who came into the court.
The witness is carefully interrogated by the judge. Halacha (practical law) means clear procedure of cross-examination. But if the witness gives false testimony so convincingly that even interrogation can find no deceit, then Tora doesn’t make the judge responsible for hidden facts he didn’t manage to unveil. And if finally the person was sentenced to the death penalty, it means there was some different sin upon him, and G-d deprived him of life this way.
If there are two witnesses who give contrary testimonies about happened event, then no testimony is accepted. But if the second one can prove the first one wasn’t present at locus delicti despite he states like that, then testimony of second witness is accepted providing he satisfactorily passed judicial verification. The witness may not give testimony about himself, thus first witness can not make such statement. But he may protect him by bringing a third witness who can confirm his presence at locus delicti.
False witness can be declared Ed Zomem (witness-malefactor – Biblical language translation). He is to be sentenced to the same punishment he wanted his victim to be done to. But it’s if witness’ malefactory was unveiled before the victim was put to death. If malefactory was unveiled after the execution of court’s sentence – he gets forty hits with knotted rope for false testimony. Tora says (Dvarim 19:19): “You shall do to him a he plotted to do to his brother” – that is he’s punished for his plot but not post factum

Second Law is No Blasphemy
The prohibition to curse the name of G-d is meant by No Blasphemy Law. That means any name used to call G-d in any language. The meaning of the prohibition refers to man who must accept humbly and thankfully everything that happens in his life and remember Hashem is merciful and long-patient. His providence never leaves any of us. He’s the One Who leads and supports us. And each detail in our life is a part of His special plan regarding each of us. And if something’s going wrong and not the way we’d like it to be – it’s necessary to clearly understand this is Hashem’s will. He sure has some serious reasons why everything should be like this, not different way. And that all is for our sake.
This is the second one from Seven Laws, but in fact this is the very first prohibition. It is exactly what Talmud starts to discuss Seven Laws of Noah Descendants with, placing it in before all other Laws. Probably, coz the Law means not only recognition of G-d (as it is meant by No Idolatry Law), but human’s full and absolute obedience to the will of G-d, as it can be understood from the previous paragraph. Then it becomes clear why No Blasphemy Law precedes much more actual, on the face of it, Law – No Idolatry. And even RAMBAM in his monumental work “Mishne Tora” places Blasphemy laws into Idolatry column, saying that both of them embody denial of universe and life foundations.
Now let’s approach Babylonian Talmud. What does it tell us about that fundamental prohibition (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 56a):
“The Sages teach: why is it written in Scripture – any man (written regarding No Blasphemy (Vayikra 24:15): Any man who blasphemes his G-d shall bear his sin –RASHI‘s comment)? To include the peoples of the world who should beware of Blasphemy the way Israel is commanded about that.”
How is Israel commanded about that (“Mishne Tora” Religious Code, Laws of Idolatry 2:8 – Maimonides (RAMBAM)):
“The warning about Blasphemy follows from Tora, as it’s written (Shemot 22:27): You shall not curse G-d. Each time Blasphemy case is brought before the court – the parable “May Yose strike Yose” is used (one of curse examples, where “Yose” substitutes for G-d’s names pronounced by a blasphemer – Author’s note). When the inquiry is over, all those present are asked to leave, and the most respected one from witnesses is asked to literally pronounce what he heard. He pronounces […], the second witness says: I heard the same he heard. And if there are many witnesses, each of them must say: I heard the same.”
RAMBAM writes the paragraph before (“Mishne Tora” Religious Code, Laws of Idolatry 2:7):
“A blasphemer is sentenced to the death penalty through throwing down onto stones only providing he pronounced the unique four-lettered Name of G-d and cursed it with one of non-erasable names, as it’s written (Vayikra 24:16): And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name of the L-rd shall be put to death, the entire community shall stone him, Ger (a person converted into Judaism – Biblical language translation) and resident (a Jew – Author’s note) alike if he pronounces the Name, he shall be put to death. For special Name – death penalty, for nick-names – only the warning that it’s prohibited.”
Now it is necessary to do some digression. The matter is one can find in Bible the great number of names used to call G-d. All them are subdivided into two groups. So called special four-lettered Name consists from letters הויה and has the highest holiness. It was allowed to pronounce only in Jerusalem Temple. Now when there’s no Temple, its pronunciation is strictly prohibited. In English it is usually translated as the L-rd. Nick-names are seven special names of G-d in Biblical language, which are allowed to say only during the prayer and Tora’s studies, and which are prohibited to erase from any place they were written at, and all the rest names of G-d that can be met in TaNaCh, like Kindful, Merciful etc.
All that – regarding Israel. However regarding the peoples of the world, RAMBAM writes (“Mishne Tora” Religious Code, Laws of Kings and Their Wars 9:3):
“Noah Descendant who cursed G-d – either he cursed the special four-lettered Name or he cursed the nick-name in any language – is to be sentenced to the death penalty. What is not like that as for Israel.”
But why is the law severer to the peoples of the world? Talmud explains (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 56a):
“Rabbi Itzhak Napaha said: it’s said to include the nick-names (regarding written in Scripture (Vayikra 24:15): Any man who blasphemes his G-d – it’s written to include the nick-names into No Blasphemy, so that the peoples of the world would beware of Blasphemy the way Israel is commanded about that; coz where all Seven Laws are taken from, there only prohibition to curse the special four-lettered Name follows, for it’s written the L-rd, and G-d is interpreted as No Idolatry Law – RASHI‘s comment). But according to rabbi Meir‘s opinion, the teaching (Vayikra 24:15): Any man who blasphemes his G-d shall bear his sin – what does Tora’s text speak about? For it’s already said (Vayikra 24:16): And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name of the L-rd shall be put to the death. As far as it’s written: And one who blasphemously pronounces the Name shall be put to the death – there can be understood that the human (both Israel and peoples of the world – Author’s note) is to be sentenced to the death only for special four-lettered Name. Where from can it be seen the nick-names are included? Tora’s text teaches: Any man who blasphemes his G-d – that is at any case. And this is rabbi Meir‘s opinion but the Sages said: for the special four-lettered Name – capital punishment, and for the nick-names – the warning. And that differs with rabbi Meisha‘s opinion. For rabbi Meisha told the Sages: Noah Descendant who cursed G-d with one of the nick-names is to be sentenced to the death. What Tora’s lines does his opinion leans on? (Vayikra 24:16): Ger and resident alike if he pronounces the Name, he shall be put to death. It can be seen from here that Ger and resident are sentenced to the death only for the special four-lettered Name, but Noah Descendant – even for the nick-name. But for rabbi Meir the line “Ger and resident alike” serves only to mark the difference in punishment. Ger and resident – by the death penalty through throwing down onto stones, but Noah Descendant – by the death penalty with sword (that is, according to rabbi Meir, both Ger and resident and Noah Descendant are to be sentenced to the death for the nick-names; they all were included by phrase “any man”, that is Ger and resident are equalized with Noah Descendants – RASHI‘s comment). It can come to your head to say that as far as they were included (in this section, all of them as those to be sentenced to the death for the nick-names – RASHI‘s comment), then they were included (also into everything written in the section, with the death penalty through throwing down onto stones – RASHI‘s comment). That’s why it was explained to you! And for rabbi Itzhak Napaha and the Sages, whom his opinion is conformed with, the line “Ger and resident alike” is adduced coz Ger and resident need the special four-lettered Name, but Noah Descendant doesn’t need it. Why then it’s written “any man”? This expression in Tora is spoken and it doesn’t carry any special semantic load.”
All names used to call G-d in all languages except for Biblical are the nick-names, according to Tora’s law. Thus, as for English, No Blasphemy strictly prohibits pronouncing the phrases like “G-d damn it” and using the nick-names mixed with really bad words and their combinations. It is also prohibited to curse G-d with names of idols, to take names “G-d” and “L-rd” in vain, and in general to speak scornfully about Creator of all existing, Who supports and refreshes the life in every one of us each single moment.

What about abuse of the Noahide Pledge?
Question: What about abuse of the Noahide Pledge
Recently, the beis din has heard objections on the part of Noahides concerning the potential abuse of the declaration by missionaries and those who might take the oath for ulterior motives. The suggestion was made to cross-examine applicants as the their beliefs.
Answer. The functions of a beis din does not include investigation. Evidence is to be brought to the court by the sides to a dispute, and related to by the court – very much like a court in the anglo-saxon tradition. The court does not investigate. It has no means of investigation.
The tradition is that a beis din hears claims, witnesses, reviews documents, issues decisions, presents documents to the sides in a case and a few other documents of the courts decision. In the classical case of convert a beis din makes the decision if to accept the convert after talking with the convert and being convinced in one or more face to face meetings that the convert is not lying. In the case of converts as a rule the strength of the motivation of the candidate is tried by refusing to convert him or her at the first request, although this is often waived if there is good reason to believe that the request to convert is Bona-Fide.
In an attempt to provide the most minimal bona-fide test of a applicant, it was decided by the court of Rabbi Schwartz in Jerusalem to include in the declaration which our beis din will require for a person with christian background, that “that person” is not and was not any part of a divinity, and was not a messiah.
This however is not a halachic statement concerning these beliefs. The beis din of Rabbi Schwartz in Jerusalem has issued no ruling on these issues.
What about those who hold “that person” is messiah?
Question: What about those who hold “that person” is messiah?
People who hold that he is not and was not any part of a divinity, but still holds that he was a messiah.
Answer: It is the opinion of Rabbi Schwartz that a person who believes that “that man” was a messiah is not transgressing any prohibition. However the issue is as follows: someone who believes that “that man” was a messiah seems to be only partly disassociating himself from full christianity, and there is a problem of what is meant by the term “messiah”. Is the messiah a “divine messenger” to “save” the world. Now when I say “a divine messenger” I mean someone – otherwise normal human being – sent by “the divinity” as a messenger. It seems that some people mean “a person with divine attributes”!
An issue which could be seen as semantic becomes of major consequence.
The decision of Rabbi Schwartz is therefore that in the beis din over which he presides he will not accept declarations of people with christian background if they think that “that man” was a messiah. This DOES NOT MEAN that the declaration of such a person before any [other] beis din is valueless. Perhaps another beis din will be satisfied that the person before them is bona fide in acceptance of the totally non-divinity of “that man”. They may accept the declaration, and it will be fully valid.
ACTS 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

KJV REvelation 18:
Revelation 18 KJV)
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
