New Testament

Revelation Chapter 12


A great wonder - a woman clothed with the sun - was bred,
The moon under her feet, and twelve stars on her head.
She pained to birth he who'll rule with an iron rod
Who faced a red dragon, but was caught up to God.
That dragon, satan, and his angels, fought in heav'n
Against Michael and his angels, but they were cast down,
While "Woe to the earth's inhabitants!" was the retort
"For the devil's come down, knowing his time is short!"
He attacked the woman, who, with eagle's wings dressed,
Fled for three and a half years to the wilderness.
The devil cast, from mouth, water for her to drown,
But, to his fury, the earth's mouth swallowed it down!
