A great and miraculous sign appeared in heaven. It was a woman wearing the sun like clothes. The moon was under her feet. On her head she wore a crown of 12 stars.
She was pregnant. She cried out in pain because she was about to have a baby.
Then another sign appeared in heaven. It was a huge red dragon. He had seven heads and ten horns. On his seven heads he wore seven crowns.
His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky. It threw them down to earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to have a baby. He wanted to eat her child the moment it was born.
She gave birth to a son. He will rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was taken up to God and to his throne.
The woman escaped into the desert where God had a place prepared for her. There she would be taken care of for 1,260 days.
