Revelation Chapter 12

Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great sign in the heavens; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;

Rev 12:2 so she having in her womb cried out, travailing in labor, and being distressed to bring forth.

Rev 12:3 Then there appeared another sign in the heavens; and behold a great fiery red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads.

Rev 12:4 And his tail dragging the third of the stars of the heavens, and did hurl them into the land; and the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Rev 12:5 For she brought out a male son, who was about to shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron; and her son was caught up to God, and to His throne.

Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared of God that they should nurture her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Rev 12:7 So there was war in the heavens; Michael and His messengers fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his messengers,

Rev 12:8 and prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in the heavens.

Rev 12:9 For the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who is deceiving the Roman world; he was cast out into the land, and his messengers were cast out with him.

Rev 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in the heavens, now has come salvation, and power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ; for the accuser of our brothers was hurled down, who accused them before our God day and night.

Rev 12:11 So they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives until the death.

Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the land and of the sea! For the Devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short season.

Rev 12:13 When the dragon saw that he was cast to the land, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the manchild.

Rev 12:14 And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nurtured for a time, and times, and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman that he might cause her to be taken away by the flood.

Rev 12:16 But the land helped the woman, and the land opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Rev 12:17 And the dragon was very angry with the woman, and went to make war with those remaining of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
