There were flashes of lightning, roars of thunder, and the worst earthquake in all of history takes place (v. 18). The great city of Babylon split into three parts, and the cities of other nations fell (v. 19). So God made Babylon drink from the wine cup that was filled with his anger. Every island and the mountains disappeared (v. 20). Hailstones, weighing about a hundred pounds each, fell from the sky on people (v. 21). Finally, the people cursed God, because the hail was so terrible.
