Apocalypsis (Revelation) 13:17Wrench

BACK NEXT
And [the beast-society arranges a comprehensive global commercial system in which] no man can buy nor sell, πŸ˜‡, except [citizen-subjects] who have the β€˜mark,’ or authority of the beast, or the [globally-unique I.D.]
number [assigned on the beast's authority and legally attached to their] name:
[their national I.D.
number, S.I.N, S.S.N.]

Note: The beast's mark begins with debased money:
a false weight and balance forbidden by the Scripture.
(For instance, a German β€˜Mark’ or U.S.
Dollar.)

The beast's name = delegated authority from the beast, a form of payment obtained by swearing an oath to the beast-system.

The word β€˜Name’ is #3686 onoma:
a literal or figurative β€˜name’:
authority, character.

β€˜Number of his/its name’ probably means a number which uniquely identifies a man, say, a national I.D.
number, a globally unique biometric number or algorithm, today tied to a mobile payment device.

Such closed payment systems have been the means of keeping scripture-followers out of trading networks at least as far back as the Roman Empire.
Michelangelo painted slaves with Charangma [Mark] placards bearing their I.D.
number on the Sistine Chapel!
The only difference today is that the system is globalized and absolute.
