b. The Beast out of the Earth -- The False Prophet
11 And I saw 1aanother beast coming up out of the 2earth, and he had two horns 3like a lamb, and he spoke like a bdragon.
12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast ain his sight, and he causes the earth and those who dwell in it to bworship the first beast, whose cdeath stroke was healed.
13 And he does great 1asigns, so that he even makes bfire come down out of heaven to the earth before men.
14 And he adeceives those who dwell on the earth on account of the signs which he was given power to do before the beast, 1commanding those who dwell on the earth to make an bimage to the beast, who had the cstroke of the sword and revived.
15 And power was given to him to give 1breath to the image of the beast that the image of the beast might even 2aspeak and cause whoever would bnot worship the image of the beast to be killed.
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the freemen and the slaves, to be given a amark on their right hand or on their bforehead,
17 And that no one may be able to buy or sell except him who has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the anumber of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has 1understanding calculate the 2number of the beast, for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred sixty-six.
