The Woman and the Dragon
12
1 Something important appeared in the sky. It was a woman whose clothes were the sun. The moon was under her feet, and a crown made of twelve stars was on her head.
12 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
wonder: or, sign
2 She was about to give birth, and she was crying because of the great pain. 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 Something else appeared in the sky. It was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and a crown on each of its seven heads.
12.3 Dn 7.7.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
wonder: or, sign
4 With its tail, it dragged a third of the stars from the sky and threw them down to the earth. Then the dragon turned toward the woman, because it wanted to eat her child as soon as it was born.
12.4 Dn 8.10.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 The woman gave birth to a son, who would rule all nations with an iron rod. The boy was snatched away. He was taken to God and placed on his throne.
12.5 a Is 66.7; b Ps 2.9.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
6 The woman ran into the desert to a place that God had prepared for her. There she would be taken care of for one thousand two hundred sixty days. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Michael Fights the Dragon
7 A war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels were fighting against the dragon and its angels.
12.7 Dn 10.13
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 But the dragon lost the battle. It and its angels were forced out of their places in heaven 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 and were thrown down to the earth. Yes, that old snake and his angels were thrown out of heaven! That snake, who fools everyone on earth, is known as the devil and Satan.
12.9 a Gn 3.1; b Lk 10.18.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a voice from heaven shout,
12.10 Job 1.9

“Our God has shown
his saving power,
and his kingdom has come!
God's own Chosen One
has shown his authority.
Satan accused our people
in the presence of God
day and night.
Now he has been thrown out!
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 Our people defeated Satan
because of the blood
r 12.11 blood: Or “death.”
of the Lamb
and the message of God.
They were willing
to give up their lives.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 The heavens should rejoice,
together with everyone
who lives there.
But pity the earth
and the sea,
because the devil
was thrown down
to the earth.
He knows his time is short,
and he is very angry.”
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13 When the dragon realized that it had been thrown down to the earth, it tried to make trouble for the woman who had given birth to a son.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 But the woman was given two wings like those of a huge eagle, so that she could fly into the desert. There she would escape from the snake and be taken care of for a time, two times, and half a time.
12.14 Dn 7.25; 12.7.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15 The snake then spewed out water like a river to sweep the woman away.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 But the earth helped her and swallowed the water that had come from the dragon's mouth. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 This made the dragon terribly angry with the woman. So it started a war against the rest of her children. They are the people who obey God and are faithful to what Jesus did and taught. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
18 The dragon
s 12.18 The dragon: The text has “he,” and some manuscripts have “I.”
stood on the beach beside the sea.
