Bible: Rev 12:12-17

12:12 Therefore you heavens rejoice, and all who reside in them!

But 1  woe to the earth and the sea

because the devil has come down to you!

He 2  is filled with terrible anger,

for he knows that he only has a little time!

12:13 Now 3  when the dragon realized 4  that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 12:14 But 5  the woman was given the two wings of a giant eagle so that she could fly out into the wilderness, 6  to the place God 7  prepared for her, where she is taken care of – away from the presence of the serpent – for a time, times, and half a time. 8  12:15 Then 9  the serpent spouted water like a river out of his mouth after the woman in an attempt to 10  sweep her away by a flood, 12:16 but 11  the earth came to her rescue; 12  the ground opened up 13  and swallowed the river that the dragon had spewed from his mouth. 12:17 So 14  the dragon became enraged at the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, 15  those who keep 16  God’s commandments and hold to 17  the testimony about Jesus. 18  And the dragon 19  stood 20  on the sand 21  of the seashore. 22
