So when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to her place where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
Then from his mouth the serpent poured water like a river after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood.
But the earth came to the help of the woman; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth.
Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus.
