Revelation 12

Revelation 12

1A woman clothed with the sun travaileth. 3A great red dragon standeth ready to devour her child. 5She is delivered, and fleeth into the wilderness. 7Michael and his angels fight with the dragon, who is cast out of heaven with his angels. 10The victory proclaimed in heaven. 13The dragon cast down to the earth persecuteth the woman.

1 And there appeared a great 1awonder in heaven; 2a woman 3clothed with the sun, and 4the moon under her feet, and upon her head 5a crown of twelve stars:

2 1And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another awonder in heaven; and behold 1a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his 1tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: 2and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, 3for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 And 1she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and 2her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And 1the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

7 1And there was war in heaven: 2Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and 3the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And 1prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And 1the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and 2Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: 3he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard 1a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for 2the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And 1they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by 2the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore 1rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. 2Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but 3a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, 1he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 1And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished 2for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth 1water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And 1the 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 1dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to 2make war with the remnant of her seed, 3which keep the commandments of God, and 4have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
