Rev. 17:4

And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, [NASB]

My Translation
[my translatio]
καὶ ἡ γυνὴ ἦν περιβεβλημένη πορφυροῦν καὶ κόκκινον καὶ κεχρυσωμένη χρυσίῳ καὶ λίθῳ τιμίῳ καὶ μαργαρίταις ἔχουσα ποτήριον χρυσοῦν ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτῆς γέμον βδελυγμάτων καὶ τὰ ἀκάθαρτα τῆς πορνείας αὐτῆς


adorned with luxury, but full of filth --

On the outside, she looks refined and regal, but her cup is full of abominations and immorality. We who are on the outside have no idea of the filth and depravity that the wealthy and rulers engage in. All of it is kept secret. The reports that became public about Jeffrey Epstein and his friends and the depraved acts they engaged in were just a peek into a much larger, pervasive problem that is hidden from the public: Sexual orgies and perversions of every kind, drugs, satanic and demonic activities, and acts and beliefs that would shock the conscience of outsiders.
