10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying:

“The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
    and the ·authority [power] of his ·Christ [Messiah; Anointed One] have now come [Dan. 7:14].

[L For] The accuser [C the name Satan means “Accuser” in Hebrew; Job 1:6–12; 2:1–6; Zech. 3:1–2] of our brothers and sisters,

    who accused them day and night before our God,
    has been ·thrown [cast; hurled] down.
11 And our brothers and sisters ·defeated [conquered] him
    by the blood of the ·Lamb’s death [L Lamb; C by means of Christ’s sacrificial death]
    and by the ·message they preached [L word of their witness/testimony].
[L And] They did not love their lives so much
    that they ·were afraid of [avoided] death.
12 So rejoice, you heavens
    and all who live there!
But ·it will be terrible for [L woe to] the earth and the sea,
    because the devil has come down to you!
He is filled with ·anger [wrath],
    because he knows he ·does not have much time [L has little time].”
