THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The Apocalypse of St. John the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

17:12 Ten kings: Ten lesser kingdoms, enemies also of the church of Christ: which, nevertheless, shall be made instruments of the justice of God for the punishment of Babylon. Some understand this of the Goths, Vandals, Huns, and other barbarous nations, that destroyed the empire of Rome.
