"For thisreason, 1rejoice, O heavens and 2you who adwell in them. 3Woe to the earth and the sea, because4the devil has comedown to you, havinggreatwrath, knowing that he has only 5a shorttime."
And when the 6dragonsaw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted7the womanwhogavebirth to the male child.
But the 8twowings of the greateagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly9into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for 10a time and times and half a time, from the bpresence of the serpent.
And the 11serpentcpouredwaterlike a river out of his mouthafter the woman, so that he might cause her to be sweptaway with the flood.
16dBut the earthhelped the woman, and the earthopened its mouth and drank up the riverwhich the dragonepoured out of his mouth.
17So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and wentoff to 12makewar with the rest of her f13children, who 14keep the commandments of God and 15hold to the testimony of Jesus.
