a nation deceived 

A Candle Shines No More – 

A darkness cursed.  May your light shine in the darkness.  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.  That is history but it is happening again.
