I saw one of his heads as if it had been aslain, and his 1fatalwound was healed. And the wholeearth2was amazed and followed after the beast;
they worshiped the 3dragonbecause he 4gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "5Who is like the beast, and who is able to wagewar with him?"
There was given to him a mouth6speakingbarrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for 7forty-twomonths was given to him.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemiesagainstGod, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, 8those who cdwell in heaven.
It was alsogiven to him to 9makewar with the dsaints and to overcome them, and authorityover10everytribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
8All who 11dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone 12whosename has not been ewritten13from the foundation of the world in the 14book of life of 15the Lamb who has been slain.
916Ifanyonehas an ear, let him hear.
1017Ifanyonefis destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; 18ifanyonekills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is 19the gperseverance and the faith of the hsaints.
11Then20I sawanotherbeastcoming up out of the earth; and he had21twohornslike a lamb and he spoke as a 22dragon.
He 23exercisesall the authority of the firstbeasti24in his presence. And he makes25the earth and those who dwell in it to 26worship the firstbeast, whose27fatalwound was healed.
He 28performsgreatsigns, so that he evenmakes29firecomedown out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.
