Of the beast with seven heads and of a second beast.

[1] And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.
Et vidi de mari bestiam ascendentem habentem capita septem, et cornua decem, et super cornua ejus decem diademata, et super capita ejus nomina blasphemiae.

[2] And the beast, which I saw, was like to a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength, and great power.
Et bestia, quam vidi, similis erat pardo, et pedes ejus sicut pedes ursi, et os ejus sicut os leonis. Et dedit illi draco virtutem suam, et potestatem magnam.

[3] And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death's wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast.
Et vidi unum de capitibus suis quasi occisum in mortem : et plaga mortis ejus curata est. Et admirata est universa terra post bestiam.

[4] And they adored the dragon, which gave power to the beast: and they adored the beast, saying: Who is like to the beast? and who shall be able to fight with him?
Et adoraverunt draconem, qui dedit potestatem bestiae : et adoraverunt bestiam, dicentes : Quis similis bestiae? et quis poterit pugnare cum ea?

[5] And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things, and blasphemies: and power was given to him to do two and forty months.
Et datum est ei os loquens magna et blasphemias : et data est ei potestas facere menses quadraginta duos.

[6] And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Et aperuit os suum in blasphemias ad Deum, blasphemare nomen ejus, et tabernaculum ejus, et eos qui in caelo habitant.

[7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation.
Et est datum illi bellum facere cum sanctis, et vincere eos. Et data est illi potestas in omnem tribum, et populum, et linguam, et gentem,

[8] And all that dwell upon the earth adored him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb, which was slain from the beginning of the world.
et adoraverunt eam omnes, qui inhabitant terram : quorum non sunt scripta nomina in libro vitae Agni, qui occisus est ab origine mundi.

[9] If any man have an ear, let him hear.
Si quis habet aurem, audiat.

[10] He that shall lead into captivity, shall go into captivity: he that shall kill by the sword, must be killed by the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Qui in captivitatem duxerit, in captivitatem vadet : qui in gladio occiderit, oportet eum gladio occidi. Hic est patientia, et fides sanctorum.

[11] And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
Et vidi aliam bestiam ascendentem de terra, et habebat cornua duo similia Agni, et loquebatur sicut draco.

[12] And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed.
Et potestatem prioris bestiae omnem faciebat in conspectu ejus : et fecit terram, et habitantes in ea, adorare bestiam primam, cujus curata est plaga mortis.

[13] And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth in the sight of men.
Et fecit signa magna, ut etiam ignem faceret de caelo descendere in terram in conspectu hominum.

[14] And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs, which were given him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and lived.
Et seduxit habitantes in terra propter signa, quae data sunt illi facere in conspectu bestiae, dicens habitantibus in terra, ut faciant imaginem bestiae, quae habet plagam gladii, et vixit.

[15] And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak; and should cause, that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast, should be slain.
Et datum est illi ut daret spiritum imagini bestiae, et ut loquatur imago bestiae : et faciat ut quicumque non adoraverint imaginem bestiae, occidantur.

[16] And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads.
Et faciet omnes pusillos, et magnos, et divites, et pauperes, et liberos, et servos habere caracterem in dextera manu sua, aut in frontibus suis :

[17] And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
et nequis possit emere, aut vendere, nisi qui habet caracterem, aut nomen bestiae, aut numerum nominis ejus.

[18] Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six.
Hic sapientia est. Qui habet intellectum, computet numerum bestiae. Numerus enim hominis est : et numerus ejus sexcenti sexaginta sex.
