that he was cast unto the earth,
he persecuted the woman which
brought forth the man-child.

The beast with seven Acads.
A.” I stood upon the sand of
the sea, and saw a beast rise
up out of the sea, having 3cven
heads and ten horns, and upon
his horns ten crowns, and upon
his heads the name of blasphe-
2 And the beast which I saw
was like unto a leopard, and his
feet were as the feet of a bear, and
his mouth as the mouth of a lion;
and the dragon gave him his pow-
er, and his seat, and great autho-
3 And I saw one of his heads
as it were wounded to death;
and his deadly wound was heal-
ed: and all the world wondered
after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the
dragon which gave power unto
the beast; and they worshipped
the beast, saying, Who is like
unto the beast who is able to
make war with him :
5 And there was given unto
him a mouth speaking great
things, and blasphemies; and
power was given unto him to con-
tinue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth
in blasphemy against God, to.
blaspheme his name, and his ta-
bernacle, and them that dweslin
heaven. - -
7 And it was given unto him.
to make war with the saints, and
to overcome them : and power
was given him over all kindreds,
and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the
earth shall worship him, whose
namesare not written in the book
of life of the Lamb slain from the
foundation of the world.

coming up out of the earth; and

of those miracles which he had wer to do in the sight of the t; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast, should be killed. 16 And he caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is
the number of a man; and his

2 And I heard a voice from
heaven, as the voice of many
waters, and as the voice of a great thunder : and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps : 3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song, but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which Rwere redeemed from the earth. 4. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. . These are they which follow the Lamb whither. soever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God, and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are withoutfault before the throne of God. 6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlastifig gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the Sea, and the fountains of waters. 8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9 And the third angel followed them, saying, with a loud voice, If any man worship the beastand his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation;
and he shall be tormented with
fire and brimstone in the pre-
sence of the holy angels, and in
the presence of the Lamb;
11 And the smoke of their tor-
ment ascendeth up for ever and
ever: and they have no rest day
nor night, who worship the beast
and his image, and whosoever re-
ceiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the
saints : here are they that keep
the commandments of God, and
the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from
heaven, saying unto me, Write,
Blessed are the dead which die in
the Lord, from henceforth : Yea,
saith the Spirit, that they may
rest from their labours; and their
works do follow them.
14 And I looked, and behold,
a white cloud, and upon the cloud
one sat like unto the Son of man,
having on his head a golden
crown, and in his hand a sharp

of the temple, crying with a loud
voice to him that sat on the cloud,

reap; for the harvest of the earth
16And he that sat on the cloud
thrust in his sickle on the earth;
and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came
out of the temple which is in hea-
ven, he also having a sharpsickle.
18 Andanother angel came out
from the altar, which had power
over fire; and cried with a loud
cry to him that had the sharp sic-
kle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp
sickle, and gather the clusters of

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great wine-press of the wrath of God. 20. And, the wine-press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the wine-press even unto the horse-bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

The song of Moses and the Lamb.
ND I saw another sign in
Seven angels having the seven last
plagues; for in them is filled up
the wrath of God. -
2 And I saw as it were a sea of
glass mingled withfire; and them
that had gotten the vićtory over
the beast, and over his image, and
over his mark, and over the num-
ber of his name, stand on the sea
of glass, having the harps of God,
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints!
4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thyjudgments are made manifest. -
5 And after that I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the Seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breastsgirded with goldengirdles.
