A beast with seven heads and ten horns rises out of the sea. Another beast with two horns comes out of the earth.

13 And I saw a beast rise out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his head the name of blasphemy. And the beast that I saw was like a cat of the mountain, 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 power and his seat, and great authority.

And I saw one of his heads, as it were wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered at the beast. And they worshipped the dragon that gave power to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to war with him?

And there was given to him a mouth that spoke great things, and blasphemies, and power was given to him to continue 42 months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every kindred, tongue, and nation. And all who dwell upon the earth worshipped him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb, who was killed from the beginning of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity will go into captivity; he who kills with a sword must be killed with a sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as did the dragon. 12 And he did all that the first beast could do in his presence. And he caused the earth and those who dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he did great wonders, so that he made fire come down from heaven in the sight of men, 14 and deceived those who dwelt on the earth by means of those signs that he had power to do in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwelt on the earth that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound of a sword and did live.

15 And he had power to give a spirit to the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak, and should cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he made all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, receive a mark in their right hands or in their foreheads. 17 And no one could buy or sell except one who had the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
