Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 1 A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
2 She was with child. She cried out, laboring and in pain, giving birth. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.
4 His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the eretz. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child. 4 His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days. 6 The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
7 There was war in the sky. Mikha'el and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war. 7 And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
8 They didn't prevail, neither was a place found for him any more in heaven. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.
9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the Devil and Hasatan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was thrown down to the eretz, and his angels were thrown down with him. 9 The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
10 I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now is come the salvation, the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night. 10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.
11 They overcame him because of the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death. 11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
12 Therefore rejoice, heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe for the eretz and for the sea, because the devil has gone down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time." 12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short."
13 When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the eretz, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
14 Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.
15 The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.
16 The eretz helped the woman, and the eretz opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
17 The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's mitzvot and hold Yeshua' testimony. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring--those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
