Revelation 12
Berean Literal Bible

The Woman and the Dragon

1And 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, 2and having in womb. And she cries out, being in travail, and being in pain to bring forth.

3And another sign was seen in heaven, and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads, seven diadems. 4And his tail drags a third of the stars of heaven, and he cast them to the earth. And the dragon stands before the woman being about to bring forth, so that when she should bring forth, he might devour her child.

5And she brought forth a male son, who is about to shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron;a and her child was caught up to God, and to His throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place having been prepared there by God, so that they should nourish her there one thousand two hundred sixty days.

The War in Heaven

7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels warred against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels warred back. 8And he did not have strength, nor was found a place for them any longer in heaven. 9And the great dragon was thrown out, the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, deceiving the whole inhabited world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

10And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying:

“Now the salvation, and the power,

and the kingdom of our God,

and the authority of His Christ have come,

because the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down,

the one accusing them before our God day and night.

11And they have overcome him by reason of the blood of the Lamb,

and by reason of the word of their testimony;

and they have not loved their life

unto death.

12Because of this, rejoice O heavens,

and those dwelling in them!

Woe to the earth and the sea,

because the devil has come down to you, having great fury,

knowing that he has a short time.”

The Woman Persecuted

13And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who had brought forth the male child. 14And the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly from the face of the serpent into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished there a time, and times, and half a time.

15And out of his mouth the serpent cast water as a river after the woman, so that he might cause her to be carried away by a flood. 16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river, which the dragon had cast out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was angry with the woman, and he went to make to war with the rest of her children keeping the commandments of God and holding the testimony of Jesus.

And he stood upon the sand of the sea.b

a 5 Psalm 2:9
b 17 BYZ and TR And I stood on the sand of the sea. Some texts number this sentence as verse 18, and others include it with 13:1.
