1 And there appeared a great sign in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. 2 And being with child, she cried out in travail, labouring to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another sign in heaven, and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns; and upon his heads seven crowns. 4 And his tail drew a third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman, who was ready to bring forth, that when she was delivered, he might devour her child. 5 And she brought forth a male child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they might nourish her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.
7 And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought against the dragon: and the dragon fought, and his angels; 8 but these prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil and Satan, who deceiveth the whole world: he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their life unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them: but wo to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea; for the devil is come down to you, in great rage, knowing that he hath but a short time.
13 Now when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the male-child: 14 and there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent threw water out of his mouth, like a river, after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and opened it's mouth, and swallowed up the flood, which the dragon threw out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged against the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
