And (kai) it makes (poiei) the (tēn) land (gēn), and (kai) the ones (tous) homing-down (katoikountas) in (en) her (autē), that (hina) they shall bow to4352 (proskunēsousin) the (to) wild animal (thērion), the (to) first one (prōton), the one (hē) whose (hou) plague (plēgē) of the (tou) death (thanatou) of it (autou) was given therapy (etherapeuthē).


13:13 And (kai) it does (poiei) great (megala) signs (sēmeia), in order that (hina) it may make (poiē) fire (pur) also (kai) come down (katabainein) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou) into (eis) the (tēn) land (gēn), in sight (enōpion) of the (tōn) mortals (anthrōpōn).


13:14 And (kai) [it caused] the ones (tous) homing-down (katoikountas) upon (epi) the (tēs) land (gēs) to wander (plana) through (dia) the (ta) signs (sēmeia) which (ha) were given (edothē) to it (autō) to do (poiēsai), in sight (enōpion) of the (tou) [first] wild animal (thēriou);


saying (legōn) to the ones (tois) homing-down (katoikousin) upon (epi) the (tēs) land (gēs), to make (poiēsai) an icon (eikona) to the (tō) wild animal (thēriō) which (hos) has (echei) the (tēn) plague (plēgēn) of the (tēs) knife (machairēs) and (kai) lived (ezēsen).


(For the devil, the *god of this cosmos, coming to steal, kill, and destroy the assembly (ekklēsia), the one body of Christ, and all mortalkind, to cause them to wander away from the one true God and His Word, see Mat. 6:13, 13:19; Mark 1:13a, 4:15, 13:5-6; Luke 13:16, 21:8, 22:3, 31; John 8:44, 10:10a, 13:27; Acts 5:3; 1 Cor. 7:5, 31b; 2 Cor. 2:11, *4:4, 11:13-15; Gal. 1:4; Eph. 4:11-14, 6:11-16; 1 Thes. 2:17-18; 2 Thes. 2:7-12; 1 Tim. 4:1-2, 5:13-15; 2 Tim. 3:13; 1 John 3:11-13, 4:1-6, 5:19; 2 John 1:7; Rev. 2:9, 12-15, 20, 12:7-17; 13:14, 18:21-23, 19:20, 20:3-10)


13:15 And (kai) there was given (edothē) to it (autō) to give (dounai) spirit (pneuma) to the (tē) icon (eikoni) of the (tou) [first] wild animal (thēriou);


in order that (hina) the (hē) icon (eikōn) of the (tou) [first] wild animal (thēriou) may speak (lalēsē) also (kai);


and (kai) in order that (hina) it may do (poiēsē) [to the ones], if perhaps (ean) as many as (hosoi) may not bow to4352 (mē proskunēsōsin) the (tē) icon (eikoni) of the (tou) [first] wild animal (thēriou), [that] they may be killed (apoktanthōsin).


13:16 And (kai) it makes (poiei) all (pantas), the (tous) micro ones (mikrous) and (kai) the (tous) great ones (megalous), and (kai) the (tous) wealthy ones (plousious) and (kai) the (tous) poor ones (ptōchous), and (kai) the (tous) free ones (eleutherous) and (kai) the (tous) slaves (doulous), that (hina) there may be given (dōsin) to them (autois) a character (charagma) upon (epi) the (tēs) hand (cheiros) of them (autōn), the (tēs) right (dexias) [hand], or (ē) upon (epi) the (to) forehead (metōpon) of them (autōn);


13:17 and (kai) in order that (hina) not (mē) anyone (tis) may cause himself to be inherently powered (dunētai) to go to market to buy (agorasai), or (ē) to sell (pōlēsai), if (ei) not (mē) the one (ho) having (echōn) the (to) character (charagma), the (to) name (onoma) of the (tou) [first] wild animal (thēriou), or (ē) the (ton) number (arithmon) of the (tou) name (onoma) of it (autou).


13:18 Here (hodē) is (estin) the (hē) wisdom (sophia):


the one (ho) holding (echōn) a mind (noun), count in pebbles (psēphisatō) the (ton) number (arithmon) of the (tou) wild animal (thēriou), because (gar) it is (estin) a number (arithmos) of a mortal (anthrōpou);


and (kai) the (ho) number (arithmos) of it (autou) [is] six hundred (hexakosioi) sixty (hexēkonta) six (hex).
