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 sawe a beaste ryse out of the sea, hauyng .vij. heades, and .x. hornes, and vpon his hornes ten crounes, and vpon his heade the name of blasphemye. Revelation 13:2 And the beaste whych I sawe, was lyke a cat of the mountayne, and hys fete were as the fete of a beare, and his mouth as the mouth of a Lyon. And the dragon gaue him hys power and hys seale, and great authorytye, Revelation 13:3 & I sawe one of his heades as it were wounded to death and his deadlye wounde was healed. And al the worlde wondred at the beaste, Revelation 13:4 & they worshipped the dragon, which gaue power vnto the beaste, and they worshipped the beast saiynge: who is lyke vnto the beast? who is able to warre with him? Revelation 13:5 And there was mouth geuen vnto hym, that spake greate thinges and blasphemies, and power was geuen vnto hym, to do .xlij. monethes. Revelation 13:6 And he opened hys mouth vnto blasphemy agaynste God, to blaspheme hys name, and his tabernacle and them that dwell in heauen. Revelation 13:7 And it was geuen vnto hym to make warre wyth the Saynctes, and to ouercome them. And power was geuen hym ouer al kynredes, tonges and nacions, Revelation 13:8 and al that dwel vpon þe earth worshipte him, whose names are not written in the boke of lyfe of þe lambe, which was killed from the beginning of the worlde. Revelation 13:9 Yf any man haue an eare, let hym heare. Revelation 13:10 He that leadeth into captiuitie shal go into captiuitie, he that kylleth wt a sweard, must be kylled wyth a sweard. Here is the pacience and the fayth of the sainctes.
Another beast cometh up out of the earth:
Revelation 13:11 And I behelde another beast commyng vp out of the earth, and he had two hornes lyke a lambe, and he spake as dyd the dragon. Revelation 13:12 And he, dyd al that the fyrste beast could do in his presence, and he caused the earth, and them which dwel therin, to worship the fyrst beast, whose deadly wounde was healed. Revelation 13:13 And he dyd greate wonders, so that he made fyre come doune from heauen in the syght of men.
causeth an image to be made of the former beast,
Revelation 13:14 And deceiued them that dwelt on the earth by the meanes of those sygnes, which he had power to do in the syght of the beaste, saying to them that dwelt on þe earth, that they should make an ymage vnto the beaste, whyche had the wounde of a swearde, and dyd lyue.
and that men should worship it,
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to geue a spyryte vnto the ymage of the beaste, and that þe ymage of the beast should speake, and shoulde cause that as manye as would not worshyppe the ymage of the beaste, shoulde be kylled.
and receive his mark.
Revelation 13:16 And he made al both smale and greate, ryche and poore, free and bonde, to receyue a marke in theyr ryght handes, or in theyr forheades. Revelation 13:17 And that no man myghte by or sell, saue he that had the marke, or the name of the beaste, other the numbre of his name. Revelation 13:18 Here is wysdom. Let him that hath wyt counte the numbre of the beaste. For it is the numbre of a man, and hys numbre is syxe hundred thre score and syxe.
