They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails.” – Revelation 9:7-10 ESV
- “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. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.” – Revelation 13:15-17 ESV
