Revelation 12
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And a great sign was seen in the sky: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars, 2and having [a child] in [her] womb she cries out, travailing and being in pain to bring forth.

3And there was seen another sign in the sky, and behold, a great fire-colored dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads, 4and his tail draws the third of the stars of the sky, and he cast them to the earth; and the dragon stood before the woman who is about to bring forth, that when she may bring forth, he may devour her child;

5and she brought forth a male son, who is about to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, and her child was snatched up to God and to His throne, 6and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place made ready from God, that there they may nourish her—one thousand, two hundred, sixty days.

7And there came war in Heaven: Michael and his messengers warred against the dragon, and the dragon and his messengers warred, 8and they did not prevail, nor was their place found anymore in Heaven; 9and the great dragon was cast forth—the old serpent, who is called “Devil,” and “Satan,” who is leading the whole world astray—he was cast forth to the earth, and his messengers were cast forth with him. 10And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, “Now came the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom, of our God, and the authority of His Christ, because the accuser of our brothers was cast down, who is accusing them before our God day and night; 11and they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life—to death; 12because of this be glad, you heavens, and those who dwell in them; woe to those inhabiting the earth and the sea, because the Devil went down to you, having great wrath, having known that he has [a] short time.”

13And when the dragon saw that he was cast forth to the earth, he pursued the woman who brought forth the male, 14and there were given to the woman two wings of the great eagle, that she may fly into the wilderness, to her place, where she is nourished a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent; 15and the serpent cast forth out of his mouth water as a river after the woman, that he may cause her to be carried away by the river, 16and the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river that the dragon cast forth out of his mouth; 17and the dragon was angry against the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, those keeping the commands of God, and having the testimony of Jesus.
