And when the dragon saw that he’d been thrown down to the earth, he persued the woman who had borne the male child. But the woman was given the wings of a great eagle, that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, where she is to be nourished for 3 1/2 years.
The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth, to sweep the woman away with the flood. But the earth came to the aid of the woman, and swallowed the river which the dragon had poured from his mouth.
Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep God’s commandments and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.
