Revelation of John 13

The Beast from the Sea

1And the dragon stood on the sand of the
Lit sea

Then I saw a b  beast coming up out of the sea, having c  ten horns and d  seven heads, and on his horns were e  ten diadems, and on his heads were f  blasphemous names.
2And the beast which I saw was g  like a leopard, and his feet were like those of h  a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of i  a lion. And the j  dragon gave him his power and his k  throne and great authority. 3I saw one of his heads as if it had been
Lit slaughtered to death
slain, and his m  fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth n  was amazed and followed after the beast;
4they worshiped the o  dragon because he p  gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying q  Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” 5There was given to him a mouth r  speaking
Lit great things
arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for t  forty-two months was given to him.
6And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is u  those who

7It was also given to him to w  make war with the

saints and to overcome them, and authority over y  every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.

The Beast from the Earth

11Then am  I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had an  two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a ao  dragon. 12He ap  exercises all the authority of the first beast
Or by his authority
ar  in his presence. And he makes as  the earth and those who dwell in it to at  worship the first beast, whose au  fatal wound was healed.
13He av  performs great signs, so that he even makes aw  fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14And he ax  deceives ay  those who dwell on the earth because of az  the signs which it was given him to perform
Or by the authority of
