1 And there was a great sign in the heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; 2 and being in gestation, she also cries, travailing in pain, and suffering to bring forth. 3 And there appeared another sign in the heaven; and behold the great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems: 4 and his tail draws the third of the stars of the heaven, and casts them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman about to bring forth, in order that he may eat up her child when she may bring it forth. 5 And she brought forth a male son, who is about to shepherdize all the nations with an iron rod: and her child was caught up to God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has there a place prepared of God, that they may there nourish her a thousand and two hundred and sixty days.
7 And there was war in the heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. 8 And the dragon and his angels fought, and they did not prevail; neither was their place found any more in the heaven. 9 And the great dragon, the old serpent, the one called the devil, and Satan, the one deceiving the whole world, was cast out: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a great voice in the heaven saying, Now has come salvation, and power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: because the accuser of our brethren, the one accusing them before our God day and night, is cast out. 11 And they conquered him through the blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony; and with divine love they love not their life unto death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O ye heavens, and those dwelling in them; woe unto the earth and the sea! because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast out into the earth, he persecuted the woman, who brought forth the male child. 14 And the two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly away into the wilderness, into her own place, where she is there nourished a time, and times, and a half time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. 16 And the earth helped the woman; and the earth opened her mouth, and drank up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged at the woman, and went away to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus.
