Revelation of John 2:1-7

To the Church in Ephesus

1“To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: ‘The words of ahim who holds the seven stars in his right hand bwho walks among the seven golden lampstands.

2 c“‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but dhave tested those ewho call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. 3I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up ffor my name’s sake, and you ghave not grown weary. 4But I have this against you, that you have abandoned hthe love you had at first. 5Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do ithe works you did at first. If not jI will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. 6Yet this you have: you hate the works of kthe Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 lHe who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. mTo the one who conquers I will grant to eat of nthe tree of life, which is in othe paradise of God.’
