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 saw, out of the sea, a wild-beast coming up; having ten horns, and seven heads, and, upon his horns, ten diadems, and, upon his head, names of blasphemy. Revelation 13:2 And, the beast which I saw, was like unto a leopard; and, his feet, as of a bear, and, his mouth, as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave unto him his power, and his throne, and great authority. Revelation 13:3 And [I saw] one of his heads, showing that it had been slain unto death, and, the stroke of his death, was healed. And the whole earth marveled after the wild-beast, Revelation 13:4 and did homage unto the dragon, because he gave his authority unto the wild-beast; and they did homage unto the wild-beast, sayingWho is like unto the wild-beast? and Who can make war with him? Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him, a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and it was given unto him to act, forty and two months. Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tent,them, who, in heaven were tabernacling. Revelation 13:7 [And it was given unto him, to make war with the saints, and to overcome them;] and there was given him, authority against every tribe and people and tongue and nation. Revelation 13:8 And all they who are dwelling upon the earth will do homage unto him,[every one] whose name is not written in the scroll of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:9 If any-one hath an ear: let him hear. Revelation 13:10 If anyone [carrieth] into captivity, into captivity, he goeth away. If anyone, with a sword, doth slay, he must, with a sword, be slain. Here, is the endurance and the faith of the saints.
Another beast cometh up out of the earth:
Revelation 13:11 And I saw another wild-beast, coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns, like unto a lamb, and began speaking as a dragon. Revelation 13:12 And, all the authority of the first wild-beast, he useth before him; and causeth the earth, and them who, therein, are dwelling, that they shall do homage unto the first wild-beast, whose stroke of death, was healed. Revelation 13:13 And he doeth great signs, so that, even fire, he causeth to be coming down unto the earth before men;
causeth an image to be made of the former beast,
Revelation 13:14 and he deceiveth them who are dwelling upon the earth, by reason of the signs which it was given him to do before the wild-beast,saying unto them who are dwelling upon the earth, that they should make an image unto the wild-beast who hath the stroke of the sword, and yet did live.
and that men should worship it,
Revelation 13:15 And it was given unto it, to give spirit unto the image of the wild-beast, in order that the image of the wild-beast should both speak and should cause that, as many as should not do homage unto the image of the wild-beast, should be slain.
and receive his mark.
Revelation 13:16 And he causeth allthe small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond,that they should give unto them a mark, upon their right hand or upon their forehead; Revelation 13:17 [and] that no one should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:18 Here, is, wisdom: he that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for it is, the number of a man; and, his number, is 666.
