"...that the image of the beast should speak..."

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon...And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Revelation 13:11,15

*"...Nebuchadnezzar endeavored to persuade Daniel by gentle means to worship an idol. He had the golden diadem of the high priest inserted in the mouth of an idol, and by reason of the wondrous power that resides in the Holy Name inscribed on the diadem, the idol gained the ability to speak, and it said the words: 'I am thy God.' Thus were many seduced to worship the image. But Daniel could not be misled so easily."

*"By means of magnetism he [Gehazi] made the golden calves at Beth-el float in the air, and many were brought to believe in the divinity of these idols. Moreover, he engraved the great and awful Name of God in their mouth. Thus they were enabled to speak, and they gave forth the same words God had proclaimed from Sinai: 'I am the Lord thy God--Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.'"
