King James VersionRevelation13


1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, hav­ing sev­en heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blas­phe­my. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leop­ard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a li­on: and the drag­on gave him his pow­er, and his seat, and great au­thor­i­ty. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wound­ed to death; and his dead­ly wound was healed: and all the world won­dered af­ter the beast. 4 And they wor­shipped the drag­on which gave pow­er unto the beast: and they wor­shipped the beast, say­ing, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was giv­en unto him a mouth speak­ing great things and blas­phemies; and pow­er was giv­en unto him to con­tin­ue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blas­phe­my against God, to blas­pheme his name, and his taber­na­cle, and them that dwell in heav­en. 7 And it was giv­en unto him to make war with the saints, and to over­come them: and pow­er was giv­en him over all kin­dreds, and tongues, and na­tions. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall wor­ship him, whose names are not writ­ten in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foun­da­tion of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that lead­eth into cap­tiv­i­ty shall go into cap­tiv­i­ty: he that kil­leth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the pa­tience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I be­held an­oth­er beast com­ing up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a drag­on. 12 And he ex­er­ciseth all the pow­er of the first beast be­fore him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell there­in to wor­ship the first beast, whose dead­ly wound was healed. 13 And he doeth great won­ders, so that he maketh fire come down from heav­en on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And de­ceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those mir­a­cles which he had pow­er to do in the sight of the beast; say­ing to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an im­age to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had pow­er to give life unto the im­age of the beast, that the im­age of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not wor­ship the im­age of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to re­ceive a mark in their right hand, or in their fore­heads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the num­ber of his name. 18 Here is wis­dom. Let him that hath un­der­stand­ing count the num­ber of the beast: for it is the num­ber of a man; and his num­ber is Six hun­dred three­score and six.
