King James VersionRevelation12


1 And there ap­peared a great won­der 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 she be­ing with child cried, tra­vail­ing in birth, and pained to be de­liv­ered. 3 And there ap­peared an­oth­er won­der in heav­en; and be­hold a great red drag­on, hav­ing sev­en heads and ten horns, and sev­en crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heav­en, and did cast them to the earth: and the drag­on stood be­fore the wom­an which was ready to be de­liv­ered, for to de­vour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man 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 should feed her there a thou­sand two hun­dred and three­score days. 7 And there was war in heav­en: Michael and his an­gels fought against the drag­on; and the drag­on fought and his an­gels, 8 And 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, which de­ceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his an­gels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice say­ing in heav­en, Now is come sal­va­tion, and strength, and the king­dom of our God, and the pow­er of his Christ: for the ac­cus­er of our brethren is cast down, which 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. Woe to the in­hab­iters of the earth and of the sea! for the dev­il is come down unto you, hav­ing great wrath, be­cause he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the drag­on saw that he was cast unto the earth, he per­se­cut­ed the wom­an which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the wom­an were giv­en two wings of a great ea­gle, that she might fly into the wilder­ness, into her place, where she is nour­ished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the ser­pent. 15 And the ser­pent cast out of his mouth wa­ter as a flood af­ter the wom­an, that he might cause her to be car­ried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the wom­an, and the earth opened her mouth, and swal­lowed up the flood which the drag­on cast out of his mouth. 17 And the drag­on was wroth with the wom­an, and went to make war with the rem­nant of her seed, which keep the com­mand­ments of God, and have the tes­ti­mo­ny of Je­sus Christ.
