11They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.11And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.11"And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.11They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.

But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”12"For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time."12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.12Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them!

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
13When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.13And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.13And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.13When the dragon saw that he had been thrown to earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
14The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.14But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.14But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.14The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, so that she could fly from the serpent's presence to her place in the wilderness, where she was fed for a time, times, and half a time.
15Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.15The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood.15And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.15From his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river flowing after the woman, to sweep her away in a torrent.
16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.16But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth.16But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth.16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.16But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river that the dragon had spewed from his mouth.
17Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring--those who keep God's commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.17Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.17So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.17So the dragon was furious with the woman and left to wage war against the rest of her offspring--those who keep God's commands and have the testimony about Jesus. [18] He stood on the sand of the sea.
