The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
2 Then being with child, she cried out ain labor and in pain to give birth.
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, aa great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
4 aHis tail drew a third bof the stars of heaven cand threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood dbefore the woman who was ready to give birth, eto devour her Child as soon as it was born.
5 She bore a male Child awho was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was bcaught up to God and His throne.
6 Then athe woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there bone thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
7 And war broke out in heaven: aMichael and his angels fought bwith the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
8 but they 1did not prevail, nor was a place found for 2them in heaven any longer.
9 So athe great dragon was cast out, bthat serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, cwho deceives the whole world; dhe was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, a“Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, bwho accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.
11 “And athey overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, band they did not love their lives to the death.
12 “Therefore arejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! bWoe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, cbecause he knows that he has a short time.”
The Woman Persecuted
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted athe woman who gave birth to the male Child.
14 aBut the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, bthat she might fly cinto the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished dfor a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
15 So the serpent aspewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.
16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus 1Christ.
The Beast from the Sea
1 Then 1I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw aa beast rising up out of the sea, bhaving 2seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a cblasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The adragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads aas if

it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And ball the world marveled and followed the beast.
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, a“Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
5 And he was given aa mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to 1continue for bforty-two months.
6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, aHis tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was granted to him ato make war with the saints and to overcome them. And bauthority was given him over every 1tribe, tongue, and nation.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, awhose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain bfrom the foundation of the world.
9 aIf anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 aHe who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; bhe who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. cHere is the 1patience and the faith of the saints.
The Beast from the Earth
11 Then I saw another beast acoming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, awhose deadly wound was healed.
13 aHe performs great signs, bso that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 aAnd he deceives 1those who dwell on the earth bby those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword cand lived.
15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak aand cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, ato receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has 1the mark or athe name of the beast, bor the number of his name.
18 aHere is wisdom. Let him who has bunderstanding calculate cthe number of the beast, dfor it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
Redemption Remembered in Present Dishonor
To the Chief Musician. A aContemplation1 of the sons of Korah.
1 WE have heard with our ears, O God, aOur fathers have told us, The deeds You did in their days, In days of old:
2 aYou drove out the 1nations with Your hand, But them You planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.
3 For athey did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand,Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, bBecause You favored them.
4 aYou are my King, 1O God; 2Command victories for Jacob.
5 Through You awe will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.
6 For aI will not trust in my bow, Nor shall my sword save me.
7 But You have saved us from our enemies, And have put to shame those who hated us.
8 aIn God we boast all day long, And praise Your name forever. Selah
9 But aYou have cast us off and put us to shame, And You do not go out with our armies.
10 You make us aturn back from the enemy, And those who hate us have taken 1spoil for themselves.
11 aYou have given us up like sheep intended for food, And have bscattered us among the nations.
12 aYou sell Your people for next to nothing, And are not enriched by selling them.
