Revelation 13:5-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

[a]The beast was given a mouth uttering proud boasts and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for forty-two months.[b] It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling and those who dwell in heaven.

Footnotes:

  1. 13:5–6 Domitian, like Antiochus IV Epiphanes (Dn 7:8, 11, 25), demanded that he be called by divine titles such as “our lord and god” and “Jupiter.” See note on Rev 11:2.
  2. 13:5 Forty-two months: this is the same duration as the profanation of the holy city (Rev 11:2), the prophetic mission of the two witnesses (Rev 11:3), and the retreat of the woman into the desert (Rev 12:6, 14).
