12 And there appeared a great ||wonder in heaven; a woman aclothed with bthe sun, and cthe moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of dtwelve stars: 2 And eshe being with child cried, ftravailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another ||wonder in heaven; and behold a great gred hdragon, ihaving seven heads and ijten horns, and seven kcrowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail ldrew mthe third part of the stars of heaven, and ndid cast them to the earth: and hthe dragon stood before othe woman which was ready to be delivered, pfor to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to qrule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was rcaught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And othe woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there sa thousand two hundred and threescore days.
7 And there was war in heaven: tMichael and his angels fought against hthe dragon; and the dragon fought and uhis angels, 8 And prevailed not; vneither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great hdragon wwas cast out, xthat old yserpent, called the Devil, and zSatan, yawhich deceiveth bthe whole world: che was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come dsalvation, and ddstrength, and ethe kingdom of our God, and the power of ehis Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, fwhich accused them before our God gday and night. 11 And hthey overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by ithe word of their testimony; and kthey loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore lrejoice, ye heavens, and ye that mdwell in them. nWoe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for othe devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, pbecause he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast qunto the earth, he persecuted rthe woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given stwo wings of a great eagle, tthat she might fly uinto the wilderness, tinto her place, where she is nourished vfor a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water was 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, and went xto make war with the remnant of her seed, ywhich keep the commandments of God, and zhave ithe testimony of Jesus Christ.
