7 And war broke out in heaven: lMichael and his angels fought mwith 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 nthe great dragon was cast out, othat serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, pwho deceives the whole world; qhe was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, r“Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, swho accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And tthey overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, uand they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore vrejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! wWoe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, xbecause he knows that he has a short time.”
