Revelation 13:11–16

The Second Beast

11 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence,1 and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. 13 It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, 14 and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of2 the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave,3 to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,

Hymn: TLH 261: Lord, Keep us Steadfast in Thy Word

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Lord, keep us steadfast in Thy Word; 
Curb those who fain by craft and sword 
Would wrest the Kingdom from Thy Son 
And set at naught all He hath done. 


2. Lord Jesus Christ, Thy power make known, 
For Thou art Lord of lords alone; 
Defend Thy Christendom that we 
May evermore sing praise to Thee. 


3. O Comforter of priceless worth. 
Send peace and unity on earth. 
Support us in our final strife 
And lead us out of death to life.
