And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw aa beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 bAnd the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and cthe dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and dall the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, eWho is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him ga mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue fforty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, hand his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him ito make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, kwhose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain jfrom the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 lHe that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: mhe that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. nHere is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And phe doeth great wonders, oso that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and qdid live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, rand cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or sthe name of the beast, tor the number of his name. 18 uHere is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
