Revelation 13:7-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 He was given power to make war1 against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.2 8 All inhabitants of the earth3 will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the book of life4 belonging to the Lamb5 that was slain from the creation of the world.a6 9 He who has an ear, let him hear.7 10 If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killedb with the sword, with the sword he will be killed.8 This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness9 on the part of the saints.10

The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth.11 He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.12 12 He exercised all the authority13 of the first beast on his behalf,14 and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast,15 whose fatal wound had been healed.16 13 And he performed great and miraculous signs,17 even causing fire to come down from heaven18 to earth in full view of men. 14 Because of the signs19 he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived20 the inhabitants of the earth.21 He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.22 15 He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship23 the image to be killed.24 16 He also forced everyone, small and great,25 rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,26 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark,27 which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.28
