The vision of the woman clothed with the sun and of the great dragon her persecutor.
1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
Et signum magnum apparuit in caelo : mulier amicta sole, et luna sub pedibus ejus, et in capite ejus corona stellarum duodecim :
2 And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.
et in utero habens, clamabat parturiens, et cruciabatur ut pariat.
3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his heads seven diadems:
Et visum est aliud signum in caelo : et ecce draco magnus rufus habens capita septem, et cornua decem : et in capitibus ejus diademata septem,
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
et cauda ejus trahebat tertiam partem stellarum caeli, et misit eas in terram : et draco stetit ante mulierem, quae erat paritura, ut cum peperisset, filium ejus devoraret.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne.
Et peperit filium masculum, qui recturus erat omnes gentes in virga ferrea : et raptus est filius ejus ad Deum, et ad thronum ejus,
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days.
et mulier fugit in solitudinem ubi habebat locum paratum a Deo, ut ibi pascant eam diebus mille ducentis sexaginta.
7 And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels:
Et factum est praelium magnum in caelo : Michael et angeli ejus praeliabantur cum dracone, et draco pugnabat, et angeli ejus :
8 And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven.
et non valuerunt, neque locus inventus est eorum amplius in caelo.
9 And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Et projectus est draco ille magnus, serpens antiquus, qui vocatur diabolus, et Satanas, qui seducit universum orbem : et projectus est in terram, et angeli ejus cum illo missi sunt.
10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: because the accuser of our brethren is cast forth, who accused them before our God day and night.
Et audivi vocem magnam in caelo dicentem : Nunc facta est salus, et virtus, et regnum Dei nostri, et potestas Christi ejus : quia projectus est accusator fratrum nostrorum, qui accusabat illos ante conspectum Dei nostri die ac nocte.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of the testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death.
Et ipsi vicerunt eum propter sanguinem Agni, et propter verbum testimonii sui, et non dilexerunt animas suas usque ad mortem.
12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you that dwell therein. Woe to the earth, and to the sea, because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.
Propterea laetamini caeli, et qui habitatis in eis. Vae terrae, et mari, quia descendit diabolus ad vos habens iram magnam, sciens quod modicum tempus habet.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, who brought forth the man child:
Et postquam vidit draco quod projectus esset in terram, persecutus est mulierem, quae peperit masculum :
14 And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
et datae sunt mulieri alae duae aquilae magnae ut volaret in desertum in locum suum, ubi alitur per tempus et tempora, et dimidium temporis a facie serpentis.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the river.
Et misit serpens ex ore suo post mulierem, aquam tamquam flumen, ut eam faceret trahi a flumine.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
Et adjuvit terra mulierem, et aperuit terra os suum, et absorbuit flumen, quod misit draco de ore suo.
17 And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Et iratus est draco in mulierem : et abiit facere praelium cum reliquis de semine ejus, qui custodiunt mandata Dei, et habent testimonium Jesu Christi.
18 And he stood upon the sand of the sea.
Et stetit supra arenam maris.
