He thatleadeth into captivity shall gointocaptivity: he thatkillethwith the swordmust be killedwith the sword.Hereis the patienceand the faith of the saints.11And I beheldanotherbeast coming up out of the earth;and he hadtwohornslike a lamb,and he spakeas a dragon.12And he exercisethall the power of the firstbeastbeforehim,andcauseth the earthand them which dwellthereintoworship the firstbeast,whosedeadlywound was healed .
13And he doethgreatwonders,sothat he makethfire come downfromheavenon the earth in the sight of men,14Anddeceiveth them that dwellon the earthby the means of those miracleswhichhe had power to do in the sight of the beast;saying to them that dwellon the earth, that they should make an image to the beast,whichhad the wound by a sword,and did live .
15Andhe had power to givelifea unto the image of the beast,that the image of the beastshouldbothspeak , andcause that as many aswouldnotworship the image of the beast should be killed .
16Andhecausethall, both smallandgreat , richandpoor , freeandbond,toreceiveb a markintheir right hand , orintheirforeheads:17And that nomanmightbuyorsell , save he that had the mark,or the name of the beast,or the number of hisname.18Hereiswisdom. Let him that hathunderstandingcount the number of the beast:for it is the number of a man;andhisnumber is Six hundred threescore and six.
