Now 1 when the dragon realized 2 that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.
Then 1 I saw another beast 2 coming up from the earth. He 3 had two horns like a lamb, 4 but 5 was speaking like a dragon.
Then 1 another sign appeared in heaven: a huge red dragon that had seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadem crowns. 2
Then 1 war broke out in heaven: Michael 2 and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
So 1 that huge dragon – the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world – was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.
but 1 the earth came to her rescue; 2 the ground opened up 3 and swallowed the river that the dragon had spewed from his mouth.
So 1 the dragon became enraged at the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, 2 those who keep 3 God’s commandments and hold to 4 the testimony about Jesus. 5 (12:18) And the dragon 6 stood 7 on the sand 8 of the seashore. 9
Now 1 the dragon’s 2 tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. Then 3 the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child as soon as it was born.
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
