Revelation 13

Revelation 13

1A beast with seven heads and ten horns riseth out of the sea, to whom the dragon giveth his power, wherewith he blasphemeth God, and vexeth the saints. 11Another beast cometh up out of the earth, which supporteth the worship of the former beast. 18The number of the beast.

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a 1beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the aname of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw 1was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the 2dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw 1one of his heads as it were awounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and 2all the world wondered after the beast.

4 And they 1worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 1And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to acontinue 2forty and two months.

6 And 1he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his 2tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 1And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 1And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in 2the book of life of the 3Lamb slain 4from the foundation of the world.

9 1If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 1He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. 2Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And 1I beheld another beast coming up 2out of the earth; and he had 3two horns like a lamb, and he 4spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, 1and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 1And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And 1deceiveth them that dwell on the earth 2by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to 3them that dwell on the earth, 4that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 1And he had power to give alife unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and 2cause 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 areceive 1a 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 the name of the beast, or 1the number of his name.

18 1Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for 2it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
