12Therefore #Ps. 96:11; Is. 44:23; Rev. 18:20rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! #Rev. 8:13Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, #Rev. 10:6because he knows that he has a short time.” 13Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted #Rev. 12:5the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14#Ex. 19:4; Deut. 32:11; Is. 40:31But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, #Rev. 12:6that she might fly #Rev. 17:3into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished #Dan. 7:25; 12:7for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15So the serpent #Is. 59:19spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
