The Woman And Her Son Versus The Dragon

3 And there appeared another sign in heaven; and lo! a great red dragon, - having seven heads and ten horns, and, upon his heads, seven diadems; 4 and, his tail, draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth. And, the dragon, stood before the woman who was about to bring forth, that, as soon as she should bring forth, he might devour, her child. 5 And she brought forth a son, a manchild, who was about to shepherd all the nations with a sceptre of iron; and her child was caught away unto God and unto his throne.
