The Beast from the Sea

1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the Iseashore.

¶ Then I saw a abeast coming up out of the sea, having bten horns and bseven heads, and on his horns [were] cten diadems, and on his heads [were] dblasphemous names. 2 And the beast which I saw was alike a leopard, and his feet were like [those] of ba bear, and his mouth like the mouth of ca lion. And the ddragon gave him his power and his ethrone and great authority. 3 [I saw] one of his heads as if it had been Islain, and his afatal wound was healed. And the whole earth bwas amazed [and followed] after the beast; 4 they worshiped the adragon because he agave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “bWho is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” 5 There was given to him a mouth aspeaking Iarrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for bforty-two months was given to him. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, [that is], athose who Idwell in heaven.

The Beast from the Earth

11 ¶ Then aI saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had btwo horns like a lamb and he spoke as a cdragon. 12 He aexercises all the authority of the first beast Ibin his presence. And he makes cthe earth and those who dwell in it to dworship the first beast, whose efatal wound was healed. 13 He aperforms great signs, so that he even makes bfire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And he adeceives bthose who dwell on the earth because of cthe signs which it was given him to perform Idin the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who *had the ewound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even Ispeak and cause aas many as do not bworship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, athe small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, Ito be given a bmark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and [he provides] that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the amark, [either] bthe name of the beast or cthe number of his name. 18 aHere is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that bof a man; and his number is Isix hundred and sixty-six.

A beast riseth out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns, to whom the dragon giveth his power.

1 ¶ And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto 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 seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Another beast cometh up out of the earth:

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

causeth an image to be made of the former beast,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom.
