“…and no craftsman, of whatever craft he be…”
We know already that Babylon is a large importer of the world´s goods and resources. One reason, along with their greed, is the craftsmanship and ingenuity of her people. Babylon is known for its ability to manufacture in mass quantities. The above verse also indicates there are many crafts, “…of whatever craft he be…,” which allows for so much variety in the goods she imports and produces. To be a craftsman requires a skill and proficiency with one´s hands and mind.
The large corporations of America are pictures of this verse. For it requires great skill and training to work the machines of these highly technical companies. What other nations on earth can compete with the technology, skill and financing of America?
