A Besta da Terra
And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like unto lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed.
And he doeth great signs, that he should even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men.
And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by reason of the signs which it was given him to do in the sight of the beast saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who hath the stroke of the sword and lived.
And it was given [unto him] to give breath to it, [even] to the image to the breast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead
and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, [even] the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six.
