12Then I witnessed in heaven an event of great significance. I saw a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head.G2532G3700G3173G4592G1722G3772G1135G4016G2246G2532G4582G5270G846G4228G2532G1909G846G2776G4735G1427G7922She was pregnant, and she cried out because of her labor pains and the agony of giving birth.G2532G2192G1722G1064G2896G5605G2532G928G50883Then I witnessed in heaven another significant event. I saw a large red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, with seven crowns on his heads.G2532G3700G243G4592G1722G3772G2532G2400G3173G4450G1404G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G2768G2532G2033G1238G1909G846G27764His tail swept away one-third of the stars in the sky, and he threw them to the earth. He stood in front of the woman as she was about to give birth, ready to devour her baby as soon as it was born.G2532G846G3769G4951G5154G792G3772G2532G906G846G1519G1093G2532G1404G2476G1799G1135G3588G3195G5088G2443G2719G846G5043G3752G50885She gave birth to a son who was to rule all nations with an iron rod. And her child was snatched away from the dragon and was caught up to God and to his throne.G2532G5088G730G5207G3739G3195G4165G3956G1484G1722G4464G4603G2532G846G5043G726G4314G2316G2532G846G23626And the woman fled into the wilderness, where God had prepared a place to care for her for 1,260 days.G2532G1135G5343G1519G2048G3699G2192G5117G2090G575G2316G2443G5142G846G1563G5507G1250G1835G22507Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels.G2532G1096G4171G1722G3772G3413G2532G846G32G4170G2596G1404G2532G1404G4170G2532G846G328And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven.G2532G2480G3756G3777G2147G846G5117G2147G2089G1722G37729This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.G2532G3173G1404G906G744G3789G2564G1228G2532G4567G3588G4105G3650G3625G906G1519G1093G2532G846G32G906G3326G84610Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, "It has come at last—salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth—the one who accuses them before our God day and night.G2532G191G3173G5456G3004G1722G3772G737G1096G4991G2532G1411G2532G932G2257G2316G2532G1849G846G5547G3754G2723G2257G80G2598G3588G2725G846G1799G2257G2316G2250G2532G357111And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.G2532G846G3528G846G1223G129G721G2532G1223G3056G846G3141G2532G25G3756G846G5590G891G228812Therefore, rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you in great anger, knowing that he has little time."G1223G5124G2165G3772G2532G4637G1722G846G3759G2730G1093G2532G2281G3754G1228G2597G4314G5209G2192G3173G2372G1492G3754G2192G3641G254013When the dragon realized that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.G2532G3753G1404G1492G3754G906G1519G1093G1377G1135G3748G5088G73014But she was given two wings like those of a great eagle so she could fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness. There she would be cared for and protected from the dragon for a time, times, and half a time.G2532G1135G1325G1417G4420G3173G105G2443G4072G1519G2048G1519G846G5117G3699G5142G1563G2540G2532G2540G2532G2255G2540G575G4383G378915Then the dragon tried to drown the woman with a flood of water that flowed from his mouth.G2532G3789G906G1537G846G4750G5204G5613G4215G3694G1135G2443G4160G5026G421616But the earth helped her by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that gushed out from the mouth of the dragon.G2532G1093G997G1135G2532G1093G455G846G4750G2532G2666G4215G3739G1404G906G1537G846G475017And the dragon was angry at the woman and declared war against the rest of her children—all who keep God's commandments and maintain their testimony for Jesus.G2532G1404G3710G1909G1135G2532G565G4160G4171G3326G3062G846G4690G3588G5083G1785G2316G2532G2192G3141G2424G554718Then the dragon took his stand on the shore beside the sea.
