10Then I heard1a loudvoice in heaven, saying, "Now the 2salvation, and the power, and the 3kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the 4accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our Godday and night.
"And they 5overcame him because of 6the blood of the Lamb and because of 7the word of their testimony, and they 8did not love their lifeevenawhen faced with death.
"For thisreason, 9rejoice, O heavens and 10you who bdwell in them. 11Woe to the earth and the sea, because12the devil has comedown to you, havinggreatwrath, knowing that he has only 13a shorttime."
And when the 14dragonsaw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted15the womanwhogavebirth to the male child.
But the 16twowings of the greateagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly17into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for 18a time and times and half a time, from the cpresence of the serpent.
And the 19serpentdpouredwaterlike a river out of his mouthafter the woman, so that he might cause her to be sweptaway with the flood.
16eBut the earthhelped the woman, and the earthopened its mouth and drank up the riverwhich the dragonfpoured out of his mouth.
17So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and wentoff to 20makewar with the rest of her g21children, who 22keep the commandments of God and 23hold to the testimony of Jesus.
