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.
