Apocalypse 13:16-18, 14:11: "And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a mark [Greek charagma, or 'badge of servitude'] in their right hand [by deed], or on their foreheads [by intellectual agreement]. And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the mark [Greek charagma], or the name of [from] the beast, or the number of his name [that he got from the beast]. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred, three score, and six. ... And the smoke of their torments shall ascend up forever and ever: neither have they rest day nor night, who have adored the beast, and his image, and whoever receiveth the mark [Greek charagma] of his name."
