Revelation 13:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A leopard (παρδάλει)

The ancients do not seem to have distinguished between the leopard, the panther, and the ounce. The word stands for either. Leopard is leo-pard, the lion-pard, which was supposed to be a mongrel between a panther and a lioness. Compare Daniel 7:6.

Bear

Compare Daniel 7:5.

Lion

Compare Daniel 7:4.
