Revelation 13:7-17 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
7 It was also given to him to 1make war with the asaints and to overcome them, and authority over 2every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. 8 All who 3dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone 4whose name has not been bwritten 5from the foundation of the world in the 6book of life of 7the Lamb who has been slain. 9 8If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 9If anyone cis destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; 10if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is 11the dperseverance and the faith of the esaints.

The Beast from the Earth

11 Then 12I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had 13two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a 14dragon. 12 He 15exercises all the authority of the first beast f16in his presence. And he makes 17the earth and those who dwell in it to 18worship the first beast, whose 19fatal wound was healed. 13 He 20performs great signs, so that he even makes 21fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And he 22deceives 23those who dwell on the earth because of 24the signs which it was given him to perform g25in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the 26wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even hspeak and cause 27as many as do not 28worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, 29the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, ito be given a 30mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the 31mark, either 32the name of the beast or 33the number of his name.
