Revelation 12:1-6View Full Chapter
The Woman and the Dragon
1A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
2She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
3Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.
4Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
5She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”
6The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
