And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a awoman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, btravailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a cgreat red dragon, dhaving seven heads and ten horns, eand seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And ihis tail drew the third part hof the stars of heaven, gand did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, ffor to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, jwho was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there ka thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in heaven: lMichael and his angels fought magainst the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And pthe great dragon was cast out, othat old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: nhe was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, qNow is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, rwhich accused them before our God day and night. 11 And sthey overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; tand they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. vWoe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, ubecause he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14 wAnd to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly xinto the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished yfor a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent zcast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, aand went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have bthe testimony of Jesus Christ.
