Revelation 13:3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
3 I saw that one of its heads seemed to have been mortally wounded, but this mortal wound was healed. Fascinated, the whole world followed after the beast. 4 They worshiped the dragon because it gave its authority to the beast; they also worshiped the beast and said, “Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it?”
5 The beast was given a mouth uttering proud boasts and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for forty-two months.
