Revelation Chapter 13

Rev 13:1 So I stood on the sand of the sea, and saw a wild beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev 13:2 For the wild beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority.

Rev 13:3 Then I saw one of his heads that it had been slaughtered to death; and his death blow was healed; and the whole land wondered after the wild beast.

Rev 13:4 So they worshiped the dragon which gave authority to the wild beast; and they worshiped the wild beast, saying, who is like the wild beast? Who is able to make war with him?

Rev 13:5 For there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and authority was given to him to continue forty-two months.

Rev 13:6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and those that tabernacle in the heavens.

Rev 13:7 And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and authority was given him over all tribes, and tongues, and nations.

Rev 13:8 So all that dwell on the land will worship him, whose names are not written in the book of the life of the Lamb slain because of the downfall of the world.

Rev 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

Rev 13:10 He that leads into captivity will go into captivity; he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the land; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.

Rev 13:12 And he exercises all the authority of the first wild beast before him, and causes those who dwell in the land to worship the first wild beast, whose death blow was healed.

Rev 13:13 And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from the heavens on the land in the sight of men,

Rev 13:14 but deceives them that dwell on the land by means of those signs which he had been given to do in front of the wild beast; saying to them that dwell on the land, that they should make an image to the wild beast, who was struck by the sword, and is alive.

Rev 13:15 For he had been granted to give breath to the image of the wild beast, that the image of the wild beast would both speak, and cause as many as would not worship the image of the wild beast would be killed.

Rev 13:16 So he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads;

Rev 13:17 So that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the wild beast, or the number of his name.

Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding calculate the number of the wild beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred sixty-six.
