Revelation of John 2

CHAPTER 2

To the Assembly at Ephesus

To the angel of the assembly in Ephesus write! Thus says the one holding the seven stars in his right hand, the one walking in the midst of the seven [2lamp stands 1golden]. I know your works, and your toil, and your endurance, and that you are not able to bear evil ones; and you tested the ones calling themselves apostles, and are not, and found them liars; and you bore, and [2endurance 1have], because of my name, and you tired not. But I have against you, that the love of yours, the first, you have left. Remember then from what place you have fallen, and repent, and [2the 3first 4works 1do]! But if not, I come to you quickly, and I will move your lamp stand from out of its place, unless you should repent. But this you have, that you detest the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also detest. The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies! To the one overcoming, I will give to him to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of my God.

To the Assemby at Smyrna

And to the angel of the [2in 3Smyrna 1assembly] write! Thus says the first and the last, who became dead, and lived. I know your works, and affliction, and poorness, (but [2rich 1you are]) and the blasphemy of the ones calling [2to be Jews 1themselves], and are not, but a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear the things you are about to suffer! Behold indeed, [3is about 4to throw 1the 2devil] some of you in prison, that you should be tested. And you shall have affliction [2days 1ten]. Be trustworthy unto death! and I will give to you the crown of life. 11 The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies! The one overcoming, in no way should be injured by the [2death 1second].

To the Assemby at Pergamos

12 And to the angel of the [2in 3Pergamos 1assembly] write! Thus says the one having the [3broadsword 2double-edged 1sharp]. 13 I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is; and you hold my name, and denied not the belief of me in the days in which Antipas [3witness 1my 2trustworthy] was, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have against you a little. That you have there ones holding the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to throw an obstacle before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit harlotry. 15 So have also you ones holding the teaching of the Nicolaitans in like manner. 16 Repent! But if not, I come to you quickly. And I shall wage war with them by the broadsword of my mouth. 17 The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies! To the one overcoming I shall give to him to eat from the manna being hid; and I will give to him [2small stone 1a white], and upon the small stone [2name 1a new] being written, which no one knew except the one receiving.

To the Assembly of Thyatira

18 And to the angel of the [2in 3Thyatira 1assembly] write! Thus says the son of God, the one having his eyes as a flame of fire, and his feet likened to fine brass. 19 I know your works, and the love, and the belief, and the service, and your endurance, and your works -- the last more than the first. 20 But I have against you, that you allow your woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, and teaches and misleads my bondmen to commit harlotry, and to eat things sacrificed to an idol. 21 And I gave to her time that she should repent; and she wanted not to repent from her harlotry. 22 Behold, I throw her into a bed, and the ones committing adultery with her into [2affliction 1great], unless they should repent from her works. 23 And [2her children 1I will kill] by plague; and they shall know in all the assemblies that I am the one searching the kidneys and hearts; and I will give to you each according to your works. 24 And to you I say, to the rest, to the ones in Thyatira, As many as have not this teaching, and the ones who knew not the deeps of Satan, as they say, I will not throw upon you another load. 25 Only what you have, hold until of which ever time I shall come! 26 And the one overcoming, and the one giving heed unto the end of my works, I will give to him authority over the nations. 27 And he shall tend them with a rod of iron, as the vessels made of clay shall be broken; as I also have received from my father; 28 and I will give to him the [2star 1early morning]. 29 The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies!
