Revelation Chapter 12

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 12

1-2 And there appeared a great sign in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she being with child she cried out travailing in birth, and in pain to deliver.

3-6 And there appeared another sign in heaven; behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads. And his tail drew a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a male child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.

7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought, and they did not prevail, neither was their place found in heaven for them anymore. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world: he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10-12 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives even to the death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.

13-17 When the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the male child. And to the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, away from the face of the serpent. And the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was furious with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
