Fugite de medio Babylonis et salvet unusquisque animam suam; nolitetacere super iniquitatem eius,quoniam tempus ultionis est a Domino, vicissitudinem ipse retribuetei. Calix aureus Babylon in manu Domini inebrians omnem terram; de vino eius biberunt gentes et ido commotae sunt. Subito cecidit Babylon et contrita est. Ulutate super eam; tol[l]ite resinam ad dolorem eius si forte sanetur.Curavimus Babylonem et non est sanata, derelinquamus eam et eamus unusquisque in terram suam, quoniam pervenit usque ad caelos judicium eius, et elevatum est usque ad numbes.

Flee yet from the midst of Babylon, and let every one save his own life: be not silent upon her iniquity: for it is the time of revenge from the Lord, he will render unto her what she hath deserved. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the hand of the Lord, that made all the earth drunk: the nations have drunk of her wine, and therefore they have staggered. Babylon is suddenly fallen, and destroyed: howl for her, take balm for her pain, if so she may be healed. We would have cured Babylon, but she is not healed: let us forsake her, and let us go every man to his own land: because her judgment hath reached even to the heavens, and is lifted up to the clouds.

Jerem. 51. [69]
