Revelation of John 12

CHAPTER 12

Signs in Heaven

And [2sign 1a great] appeared in the heaven; a woman wearing the sun, and the moon underneath her feet, and upon her head a crown [2stars 1of twelve]. And [2in 3the womb 1having one], she cried out travailing, and being tormented to give birth. And appeared another sign in the heaven. And behold, [3dragon 1there was a great 2fiery] having [2heads 1seven], and [2horns 1ten]; and upon his heads seven diadems. And his tail drags the third of the stars of the heaven, and he casts them to the earth. And the dragon stands before the woman about to give birth, that whenever she should give birth [3child 2her 1he should devour]. And she bore [2son 1a male] who is about to tend all the nations with a rod of iron; and [2was snatched away 1her child] to God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place being prepared by God, that there she should be nourished [4days 1a thousand 2two hundred 3sixty].

War in Heaven

And there was war in the heaven; Michael and his angels to wage war with the dragon, and the dragon waged war and his angels; and it did not prevail, nor was a place found for him any longer in the heaven. And [4was cast out 1the 3dragon 2great], the [2serpent 1ancient], the one being called the devil and Satan; the one misleading the [2inhabitable world 1entire] was cast unto the earth, and his angels [2with 3him 1were cast]. 10 And I heard [2voice 1a great] in the heaven, saying, Now is come the deliverance, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ; for [4was cast down 1the 2accuser 3of our brethren], the one accusing them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him through the blood of the lamb, and through the word of their testimony, and they loved not their life until death.

The Devil on the Earth -- 3rd Woe

12 Because of this be glad, O heavens, and O ones [2in 3them 1encamping]! Woe to the earth, and the sea, for [3is come down 1the 2devil] to you, having [2rage 1great], knowing that [2a short 3time 1he has]. 13 And when [3saw 1the 2dragon] that he was cast to earth, he pursued the woman who gave birth to the male. 14 And were given to the woman two wings of the [2eagle 1great], that she should fly into the wilderness, to her place, where she should be nourished there a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And [3shot 1the 2serpent] from out of his mouth [4after 5the 6woman 1water 2as 3a river], that [2her 3river borne 1he should make]. 16 And [3helped 1the 2earth] the woman, and [3opened 1the 2earth] her mouth, and swallowed down the river which [3shot 1the 2dragon] from out of its mouth. 17 And [3was provoked to anger 1the 2dragon] against the woman, and it went forth to make war with the rest of her seed, of the ones giving heed to the commandments of God, and having the testimony of Jesus.
