And there ap­peared a great won­der 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 was with child and cried tra­vail­ing in birth, and pained ready to be de­liv­ered. And there ap­peared an­other won­der in heaven, for be­hold a great red dragon, hav­ing seven heads, and ten horns and crowns upon his heads: and his tail drew the third part of the stars, and cast them to the earth.

And the dragon stood be­fore the woman which was ready to be de­liv­ered: for to de­vour her child as soon as it were born. And she brought forth a man child, which should rule all na­tions with a rod of iron. And her son was taken up unto God, and to his seat. And the woman fled into wilder­ness, where she had a place, pre­pared of God, that they should feed her there one thou­sand two hun­dred and sixty days.

And there was great bat­tle in heaven, Michael and his an­gels fought with the dragon and the dragon fought and his an­gels, and pre­vailed not: nei­ther was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon, that old ser­pent called the devil and Satan was cast out. Which de­ceiveth all the world. And he was cast into the earth, and his an­gels were cast out also.

And I heard a loud voice say­ing: in heaven is now made sal­va­tion and strength and the king­dom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which ac­cused them be­fore 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 unto the death. There­fore re­joice heav­ens, and ye that dwell in them.

Woe to the in­hab­iters of the earth, and of the sea: for the devil is come down unto you which hath great wrath, be­cause he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

And when the dragon saw, that he was cast unto the earth, he per­se­cuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great ea­gle, that she might fly into the wilder­ness, into her place, where she is nour­ished for a time, times, and half a time, from the pres­ence of the ser­pent. And the dragon cast out of his mouth water af­ter the woman as it had been a river be­cause she should have been caught of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swal­lowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman: and went and made war with the rem­nant of her seed, which keep the com­mand­ments of God, and have the tes­ti­mony of Je­sus Christ. And I stood on the sea sand.

“And I heard a loud voice say­ing: in heaven is now made sal­va­tion and strength and the king­dom of our God, and the power of his Christ. For he is cast down which ac­cused them be­fore 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 unto the death. There­fore re­joice heav­ens, and ye that dwell in them. . .” (Rev­e­la­tion 12:10-12)
