A beast riseth out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns, to whom the dragon giveth his power.
Revelation 13:1 And I stoode on the sea sand. And I sawe a beast rise out of the sea, hauing seuen heads, and ten hornes, and vpon his hornes were ten crownes, and vpon his heads the name of blasphemie. Revelation 13:2 And the beast which I sawe, was like a Leopard, and his feete like a beares, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gaue him his power and his throne, and great authoritie. Revelation 13:3 And I sawe one of his heads as it were wounded to death, but his deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondred and folowed the beast. Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gaue power vnto the beast, & they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like vnto the beast! Who is able to warre with him! Revelation 13:5 And there was giuen vnto him a mouth, that spake great things and blasphemies, and power was giuen vnto him, to doe two and fourtie moneths. Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth vnto blasphemie against God, to blaspheme his Name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heauen. Revelation 13:7 And it was giuen vnto him to make warre with the Saints, and to ouercome them, & power was giuen him ouer euery kinred, and tongue, and nation. Revelation 13:8 Therefore all that dwell vpon the earth, shall worship him, whose names are not written in the booke of life of that Lambe, which was slaine from the beginning of the world. Revelation 13:9 If any man haue an eare, let him heare. Revelation 13:10 If any leade into captiuitie, hee shall go into captiuitie: if any kill with a sword, he must be killed by a sword: here is the patience and the faith of the Saints.
Another beast cometh up out of the earth:
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming vp out of the earth, which had two hornes like the Lambe, but he spake like the dragon. Revelation 13:12 And he did all that the first beast could doe before him, and he caused the earth, and them which dwell therein, to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Revelation 13:13 And he did great wonders, so that hee made fire to come downe from heauen on the earth, in the sight of men,
causeth an image to be made of the former beast,
Revelation 13:14 And deceiued them that dwell on the earth by the signes, which were permitted to him to doe in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound of a sword, and did liue.
and that men should worship it,
Revelation 13:15 And it was permitted to him to giue a spirit vnto the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast should speake, and should cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast, should be killed.
and receive his mark.
Revelation 13:16 And he made all, both small and great, rich and poore, free and bond, to receiue a marke in their right hand or in their foreheads, Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, saue hee that had the marke, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdome. Let him that hath wit, count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is sixe hundreth threescore and sixe.
