1 Et vidi de mari bestiam ascendentem, habentem cor nua decem et capita septem, et super cornua eius decem diademata, et super capita eius nomina blasphemiae.
2 Et bestia, quam vidi, similis erat pardo, et pedes eius sicut ursi, et os eius sicut os leonis. Et dedit illi draco virtutem suam et thronum suum et potestatem magnam.
3 Et unum de capitibus suis quasi occisum in mortem, et plaga mortis eius curata est. Et admirata est universa terra post bestiam,
4 et adoraverunt draconem, quia dedit potestatem bestiae, et adoraverunt bestiam dicentes: "Quis similis bestiae, et quis potest pugnare cum ea?".
5 Et datum est ei os loquens magna et blasphemias, et data est illi potestas facere menses quadraginta duos.
6 Et aperuit os suum in blasphemias ad Deum, blasphemare nomen eius et tabernaculum eius, eos, qui in caelo habitant.
7 Et datum est illi bellum facere cum sanctis et vincere illos, et data est ei potestas super omnem tribum et populum et linguam et gentem.
8 Et adorabunt eum omnes, qui inhabitant terram, cuiuscumque non est scriptum nomen in libro vitae Agni, qui occisus est, ab origine mundi.
9 Si quis habet aurem, audiat:
10 Si quis in captivitatem, in captivitatem vadit; si quis in gladio debet occidi, oportet eum in gladio occidi. Hic est patientia et fides sanctorum.
11 Et vidi aliam bestiam ascendentem de terra, et habebat cornua duo similia agni, et loquebatur sicut draco.
12 Et potestatem prioris bestiae omnem facit in conspectu eius. Et facit terram et inhabitantes in ea adorare bestiam primam, cuius curata est plaga mortis.
13 Et facit signa magna, ut etiam ignem faciat de caelo descendere in terram in conspectu hominum.
14 Et seducit habitantes terram propter signa, quae data sunt illi facere in conspectu bestiae, dicens habitantibus in terra, ut faciant imaginem bestiae, quae habet plagam gladii et vixit.
15 Et datum est illi, ut daret spiritum imagini bestiae, ut et loquatur imago bestiae; et faciat, ut quicumque non adoraverint imaginem bestiae, occidantur.
16 Et facit omnes pusillos et magnos et divites et pauperes et liberos et servos accipere characterem in dextera manu sua aut in frontibus suis,
17 et ne quis possit emere aut vendere, nisi qui habet characterem, nomen bestiae aut numerum nominis eius.
18 Hic sapientia est: qui habet intellectum, computet numerum bestiae; numerus enim hominis est: et numerus eius est sescenti sexaginta sex.
King James Version
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
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 power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: 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 continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in 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 names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; 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 causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And 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 number is Six hundred threescore and six.
