Bible: Revelation 13:2-6
13:2 Now 1 the beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. The 2 dragon gave the beast 3 his power, his throne, and great authority to rule. 4 13:3 One of the beast’s 5 heads appeared to have been killed, 6 but the lethal wound had been healed. 7 And the whole world followed 8 the beast in amazement; 13:4 they worshiped the dragon because he had given ruling authority 9 to the beast, and they worshiped the beast too, saying: “Who is like the beast?” and “Who is able to make war against him?” 10 13:5 The beast 11 was given a mouth speaking proud words 12 and blasphemies, and he was permitted 13 to exercise ruling authority 14 for forty-two months. 13:6 So 15 the beast 16 opened his mouth to blaspheme against God – to blaspheme both his name and his dwelling place, 17 that is, those who dwell in heaven.
