Abstract Apocalipsis 11,18 es un texto que se cita comúnmente en relación con el cuidado de la tierra y sus recursos naturales. Este artículo mostrará que, en su contexto apropiado, la destrucción de la tierra a la que se refiere Ap 11,18 no es la degradación del medio ambiente natural de la Tierra. Más bien, se refiere al derramamiento de las siete plagas, cuya responsabilidad última, aunque es una acción de Dios, se atribuye a la nación que está bajo el liderazgo de la bestia. Por lo tanto, es inadecuado exegéticamente usar Ap 11:18 como un texto prueba descontextualizado para instar a ser responsables con el medio ambiente.

Revelation 11,18 is a verse that is commonly cited specifically in connection with caring for the earth and its natural resources. This paper will argue that in its appropriate context, the destruction of the earth to which Rev 11,18 refers is not the degradation of the natural environment of the earth. Rather, it refers to the outpouring of the seven plagues, for which ultimate responsibility, although it is God’s action, is attributed to the nations under the leadership of the beast. It is therefore exegetically inappropriate to use Rev 11,18 as a de-contextualized prooftext to urge environmental responsibility.
