1 And a great sign was seen in 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 with child she crieth, travailing in birth and pained to be delivered.
3 And another sign was seen in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
4 And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and casteth them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered, that when she had brought forth, he might devour the child.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who shall rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared by God, that they may feed her twelve hundred and sixty days.
7 And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels:
8 And he prevailed not, neither was his place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, the antient serpent, who is called the devil and satan, who deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out unto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come the salvation, and the might, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ, for the accuser of our brethren is cast out, who accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them: Wo to the earth and the sea; for the devil is come down to you, having great wrath; because he knoweth he hath but a little time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman that had brought forth the male child.
14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is fed for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream.
16 But the earth helped the woman, and opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river which the dragon had cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went forth to make war with the rest of her seed who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus.
