|Revelation 13:1,11,17:3 |
1 Then I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads blasphemous names. [The Greek word for the beast in this verse and chapter, is "yhrion," which means: 1) an animal, 2) a wild animal, wild beast, beast, 3)metaphor: a brutal, bestial man, savage, ferocious.]
11 Then I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet colored beast, full of many names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.3
