And the beastwhich I saw was 1like a leopard, and his feet were like those of 2a bear, and his mouthlike the mouth of 3a lion. And the 4dragongave him his power and his 5throne and greatauthority.
I saw one of his heads as if it had been aslain, and his 6fatalwound was healed. And the wholeearth7was amazed and followed after the beast;
they worshiped the 8dragonbecause he 9gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "10Who is like the beast, and who is able to wagewar with him?"
There was given to him a mouth11speakingbarrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for 12forty-twomonths was given to him.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemiesagainstGod, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, 13those who cdwell in heaven.
It was alsogiven to him to 14makewar with the dsaints and to overcome them, and authorityover15everytribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
8All who 16dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone 17whosename has not been ewritten18from the foundation of the world in the 19book of life of 20the Lamb who has been slain.
921Ifanyonehas an ear, let him hear.
1022Ifanyonefis destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; 23ifanyonekills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is 24the gperseverance and the faith of the hsaints.
11Then25I sawanotherbeastcoming up out of the earth; and he had26twohornslike a lamb and he spoke as a 27dragon.
He 28exercisesall the authority of the firstbeasti29in his presence. And he makes30the earth and those who dwell in it to 31worship the firstbeast, whose32fatalwound was healed.
