“And here is the mind which hath wisedome. The seuen heads are seuen mountaines, on which the woman sitteth.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the Saints, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Iesus: and when I saw her, I wondred with great admiration. 7. And the Angel saide vnto mee, Wherefore didst thou marueile? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carieth her, which hath the seuen heads, and ten hornes. 8. The beast that thou sawest, was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomlesse pit, and goe into perdition, and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, (whose names were not written in the booke of life from the foundation of the world) when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9. And here is the mind which hath wisedome. The seuen heads are seuen mountaines, on which the woman sitteth. 10. And there are seuen Kings, fiue are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come: and when he commeth, he must continue a short space. 11. And the beast that was, and is not, euen he is the eighth, & is of the seuen, and goeth into perdition. 12. And the tenne hornes which thou sawest, are ten kings, which haue receiued no kingdom as yet: but receiue power as kings one houre with the beast.
