13 And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea.
And I saw a beast coming out of the sea.
He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns,
and on each head, a blasphemous name.
2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard but had feet like
those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.
The dragon gave the beast his power and
his throne and great authority.
3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a
fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.
The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.
4 Men worshiped the dragon because he had given
authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast
and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can
make war against him?”
