|<< Revelation 12 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And a great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman who was wearing the Sun, and the Moon was under her feet, and a crown of 12 stars on her head;
And she was pregnant and she cried out and was in labor; she was also in anguish to give birth.
3And another sign appeared in Heaven and, behold, a great fiery Dragon that has seven heads and 10 horns, and upon its heads seven diadems.
4And its tail dragged the third of the stars that are in the Heavens and cast them upon The Earth; and the Dragon was standing before the woman who was ready to give birth, that when she had delivered, it would devour her Son.
5And she delivered the Son, the Male who was to Shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron. And her Son was caught up to God and to his throne.
6And the woman fled to the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God where she would be sustained 1260 days.
7And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his Angels fighting with the Dragon; and the Dragon and its Angels fought
8And did not prevail, neither was a place found for them in Heaven.
9And the great Dragon was cast down, that Chief Serpent, which is called The Devil and Satan, which deceives all The Earth, and it was cast down unto The Earth and its Angels were cast down with it.
10And I heard a great voice from Heaven that said, “Now is the deliverance and the power and The Kingdom of our God, for The Accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them night and day before our God,”
11“And they were victorious by the blood of The Lamb and by the word of his testimony and they did not love their lives unto death.”
12“Therefore Heavens, celebrate, and those who dwell in them; woe to The Earth and to the Sea, for The Devil, who has great fury, has descended to them, as he knows that he has little time.”
13And when the Dragon saw that it had been cast down to The Earth, it persecuted the woman who had given birth to The Male.
14And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman to fly into the wilderness to her place, to be sustained there for a time, times, and half a time, from before the face of The Serpent.
15And The Serpent cast water like a river out of its mouth after the woman, to cause her to be taken by the waters.
16And The Earth helped the woman, and The Earth opened its mouth and swallowed that river which the Dragon had cast from its mouth.
17And the Dragon raged against the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her Seed, these who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yeshua.
