Covered in the First Section
1. A Woman Who Brings Forth a Man-child,
and a Great Red Dragon -- Satan
a. The Woman in Travail
1 And a great asign was seen in heaven: a 1bwoman clothed with the csun, and the moon underneath her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
2 And she was with 1child, and she 2cried out, 3atravailing in birth and being in bpain to bring forth.
b. The Great Red Dragon against the Woman
3 And another sign was seen in heaven; and behold, there was a great red 1adragon, having 2bseven heads and ten horns, and on his heads 3seven cdiadems.
4 And his tail drags away the third part of the 1astars of heaven, and he cast them to the earth. And the 2dragon stood before the woman who was about to bring forth, so that when she brings forth he might bdevour her child.
c. The Man-child Born and Caught Up
to God and to His Throne
5 And she 1brought forth a son, a 2man-child, who is to ashepherd all the nations with an iron rod; and her child was 3caught up to God and to His throne.
d. The Woman Fleeing
6 And the woman fled into the 1wilderness, where she has a place there prepared by God so that they might nourish her there a athousand two hundred and sixty days.
e. War in Heaven
7 And there was 1war in heaven: 2aMichael and his angels went to war with the dragon. And the dragon warred and 3bhis angels.
8 And they did not prevail, neither was their place found any longer in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was 1cast down, the 2ancient aserpent, he who is called the 3bDevil and 4cSatan, he who ddeceives the whole inhabited earth; he was ecast to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him.
f. The Triumphant Shout in Heaven
10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now has come the salvation and the power and the 1akingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ, for the 2accuser of our brothers has been cast down, who baccuses them before our God day and night.
11 And 1they aovercame him because of the 2bblood of the cLamb and because of the 3word of their testimony, and they 4dloved not their soul-life even 5eunto death.
12 Therefore be glad, O heavens and athose who 1dwell in them. bWoe to the earth and the sea because the devil has come down to you and has 2great rage, knowing that he has only a 3short time.
g. The Dragon Persecuting the Woman
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he 1persecuted the woman who brought forth the man-child.
14 And to the woman there were given the two wings of the 1great aeagle that she might bfly into the wilderness into her place, where she is nourished for 2a ctime and times and half a time from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast 1awater as a river out of his mouth after the woman that he might cause her to be carried away by its current.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth 1opened its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
h. The Dragon Making War
with the Rest of the Woman's Seed
17 And the dragon became angry with the woman and went away to make awar with the 1rest of her seed, who bkeep the commandments of God and have the ctestimony of Jesus.
18 And 1he stood on the sand of the 2asea.
