13:1 וָאֱהִי עֹמֵד עַל־חוֹל הַיָּם וָאֵרֶא חַיָּה עֹלָה מִן־הַיָּם וְלָהּ עֶשֶׂר קְרָנַיִם וְשִׁבְעָה רָאשִׁים וּבְקַרְנֶיהָ עֲשָׂרָה כְתָרִים וּבְרָאשֶׁיהָ שְׁמוֹת גִּדּוּפִים׃
Va'ehi omed al-chol hayam va'erei chayah olah min-hayam velah eser keranayim veshiv'ah rashim uvekarneiha asarah chetarim uverasheiha shemot gidufim.
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a Beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads blasphemous names.
13:2 And the beast which I saw was like to a leopard, 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.
13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like to the beast? who is able to make war with him?
13:5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty [and] two months.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against Elohim (אלהים), to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in Shamayim.
13:7 And it was given to him to make war with the Kiddishim, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
13:8 And all that dwell upon the land shall worship him, whose names are not written in the sefer of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
13:10 He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the Kiddishim.
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the land; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
13:12 And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the land and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13:13 And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from Shamayim on the land in the sight of men,
13:14 And deceives them that dwell on the land by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the land, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
13:15 And he had power to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
13:16 And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
13:18 בָּזֹאת חָכְמָה מִי שֶׁבִּינָה לוֹ יְחַשֵּׁב מִסְפַּר הַחַיָּה כִּי מִסְפַּר אָדָם הוּא וּמִסְפָּרוֹ שֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת וְשִׁשִּׁים וָשֵׁשׁ׃
B'azot chochmah mi s'hebinah lo yechashev mispar hachayah ki mispar adam hu u'misparo shesh me'ot veshishim vashesh
Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of man--his number is 666.
