CLV(i) 1 And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon underneath her feet, and on her head a wreath of twelve stars." 2 And being pregnant, she is crying, travailing and tormented to be bringing forth." 3 And seen was another sign in heaven, and lo! a great fiery-red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads seven diadems." 4 And its tail is dragging a third of the stars of heaven, and casts them into the earth. And the dragon stands before the woman who is about to be bringing forth, that it may be devouring her child whenever she may be bringing forth" 5 And she brought forth a son, a male, who is about to be shepherding all the nations with an iron club. And her child is snatched away to God and to His throne." 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, there where she has a place made ready by God, that there they may be nourishing her a thousand two hundred sixty days." 7 And a battle occurred in heaven. Michael and his messengers battle with the dragon, and the dragon battles, and its messengers." 8 And they are not strong enough for him, neither was their place still found in heaven." 9 And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent called Adversary and Satan, who is deceiving the whole inhabited earth. It was cast into the earth, and its messengers were cast with it." 10 And I hear a loud voice in heaven saying, "Just now came the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ, for the accuser of our brethren was cast out, who was accusing them before our God day and night." 11 And they conquer him through the blood of the Lambkin, and through the word of their testimony, and they love not their soul, until death." 12 Therefore, make merry, ye heavens, and those tabernacling in them! Woe to the land and the sea, for the Adversary descended to you having great fury, being aware that brief is the season that he has." 13 And when the dragon perceived that it was cast into the earth, it persecutes the woman who brought forth the male." 14 And given to the woman were the two wings of a large vulture, that she may be flying into the wilderness into her place, there where she is nourished a season, and seasons, and half a season, from the face of the serpent." 15 And the serpent casts water as a river out of its mouth after the woman, that she should be carried away by its current." 16 And the earth helps the woman, and the earth opens its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon casts out of its mouth." 17 And the dragon is angry with the woman, and came away to do battle with the rest of her seed, who are keeping the precepts of God and who have the testimony of Jesus."
