The Woman, Israel

1 A great sign R535 appeared in R536 heaven: a R537 woman clothed R538 with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; 2 and she was with child; and she cried R539 out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.

The Red Dragon, Satan

3 Then another R540 sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon R541 having seven R542 heads and ten R543 horns, and on his heads were seven R544 diadems. 4 And his tail swept away a third R545 of the stars of heaven and threw R546 them to the earth. And the dragon R547 stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he R548 might devour her child.

The Male Child, Christ

5 And she R549 gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule R550 F114 all the nations F115 with a rod of iron; and her child was caught R551 up to God and to His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she F116 would be nourished for one R552 thousand two hundred and sixty days.

The Angel, Michael

7 And there was war in heaven, Michael R553 and his angels waging war with the dragon. R554 The dragon and his R555 angels waged war, 8 and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon R556 was thrown down, the serpent R557 of old who is called the devil and Satan, R558 who deceives R559 the whole world; F117 he was thrown R560 down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. 10 Then I heard a R561 loud voice in heaven, saying,

"Now the salvation, R562 and the power, and the kingdom R561 of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser R563 of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 11 "And they overcame R564 him because of the R565 blood of the Lamb and because of the R566 word of their testimony, and they did R567 not love their life even when F118 faced with death. 12 "For this reason, rejoice, R568 O heavens and you R569 who dwell F119 in them. Woe R570 to the earth and the sea, because the R571 devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a R572 short time."

13 And when the dragon R573 saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the R574 woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two R575 wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into R576 the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a R577 time and times and half a time, from the presence F120 of the serpent. 15 And the serpent R578 poured F121 water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But F122 the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured F123 out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make R579 war with the rest of her children, R580 F124 who keep R581 the commandments of God and hold R582 to the testimony of Jesus.
