A great1signappeared2in heaven: 3a woman4clothed with the sun, and the moonunder her feet, and on her head a crown of twelvestars;
and she was with child ; and she 5cried out, being in labor and in pain to givebirth.
3Then6anothersignappeared in heaven: and behold, a greatred7dragonhaving8sevenheads and 9tenhorns, and on his heads were 10sevendiadems.
And his tailsweptaway a 11third of the stars of heaven and 12threw them to the earth. And the 13dragonstoodbefore the woman who was about to givebirth, so that when she gavebirth14he might devour her child.
And 15she gavebirth to a son, a male child, who is to a16ruleall the bnations with a rod of iron; and her child was 17caught up to God and to His throne.
6Then the womanfled into the wildernesswhere she had a placeprepared by God, so that therecshe would be nourished for 18onethousandtwohundred and sixtydays.
And there was war in heaven, 19Michael and his angelswagingwar with the 20dragon. The dragon and 21his angelswagedwar,
and they were not strongenough, and there was nolonger a placefound for them in heaven.
And the great22dragon was thrown down, the 23serpent of old who is called the devil and 24Satan, who 25deceives the wholedworld; he was 26thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
