Bible: Rev 17:8

17:8 The beast you saw was, and is not, but is about to come up from the abyss 1  and then go to destruction. The 2  inhabitants of the earth – all those whose names have not been written in the book of life since the foundation of the world – will be astounded when they see that 3  the beast was, and is not, but is to come.
