Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 18:17

_ _ is come to naughtGreek, “is desolated.”

_ _ shipmasterGreek, “steersman,” or “pilot.”

_ _ all the company in ships — A, C, Vulgate, and Syriac read, “Every one who saileth to a place” (B has “... to the place”), every voyager. Vessels were freighted with pilgrims to various shrines, so that in one month (a.d. 1300) two hundred thousand pilgrims were counted in Rome [D’aaubigne, Histoire de la Reformation]: a source of gain, not only to the Papal see, but to shipmasters, merchants, pilots, etc. These latter, however, are not restricted to those literally “shipmasters,” etc., but mainly refer, in the mystical sense, to all who share in the spiritual traffic of apostate Christendom.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
