并没有得胜,天上再没有他们的地方。

我听见在天上有大声音说,我神的救恩,能力,国度,并他基督的权柄,现在都来到了。因为那在我们神面前昼夜控告我们弟兄的,已经被摔下去了。
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

第11段

弟兄胜过他,是因羔羊的血,和自己所见证的道。他们虽至于死,也不爱惜性命。
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

第12段

所以诸天和住在其中的,你们都快乐吧。只是地与海有祸了,因为魔鬼知道自己的时候不多,就气忿忿的下到你们那里去了。
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

龙见自己被摔在地上,就逼迫那生男孩子的妇人。
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

第17段

龙向妇人发怒,去与他其馀的儿女争战,这儿女就是那守神诫命,为耶稣作见证的。那时龙就站在海边的沙上。
