A great signa appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and a crown of 12 stars on her head.b2
She was pregnant and cried out in labor and agony to give birth.
Then another signc appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns,d and on his heads were seven diadems.e4
His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth.f And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child.
But she gave birth to a Son-a male who is going to shepherdg all nations with an iron scepterh-and her child was caught up to God and to His throne.
The woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God,i to be fed therej for 1,260 days.k
