Revelation of John 3


To the Assembly at Sardis

1And to the angel of the [2in 3Sardis 1assembly] write! Thus says the one having the seven spirits of God, and the seven stars. I know your works, that [2a name 1you have], that you live -- but you are dead. 2Become being vigilant, and support the rest which you are about to throw off! for I have not found your works being fulfilled before my God. 3Remember then how you received and heard, and give heed, and repent! If then you should not be vigilant, I will come upon you as a thief, and in no way should you know what hour I will come upon you. 4But [2a few 1You have] names in Sardis which tainted not their garments; and they shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy. 5The one overcoming, this one shall be covered with [2garments 1white]; and in no way shall I wipe away his name from out of the book of life, and I will acknowledge his name before my father, even in the presence of his angels. 6The one having an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the assemblies!

To the Assembly at Philadelphia

7And to the angel of the [2in 3Philadelphia 1assembly] write! Thus says the holy one, the true, the one having the key of David; the one opening, and no one locks, and locks, and no one opens. 8I know your works. Behold, I have put before you a door being opened, which no one is able to lock it; for [2a little 1you have] power, and you gave heed to my word, and denied not my name. 9Behold, I give from out of the synagogue of Satan of the ones saying themselves to be Jews, and are not, but lie. Behold, I will make them that they shall come and do obeisance before the feet of you, and they should know that I love you; 10for you kept the word of my endurance, and I will keep you from the hour of the test, of the one about to come upon the [2world 1entire], to test the ones dwelling upon the earth. 11I come quickly. Hold what you have, that no one should take your crown! 12The one overcoming, I will make him a column in the temple of my God, and outside in no way should he go forth any longer. And I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God -- of the new Jerusalem, which comes down from out of the heaven from my God, and [3name 1my 2new]. 13The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies!

To the Assembly at Laodicea

14And to the angel of the [2in Laodicea 1assembly] write! Thus says the amen, the [4witness 1trustworthy 2and 3true], the source of the creation of God. 15I know your works, that [2neither 3cold 1you are] nor boiling hot; ought [2cold 1you should be] or boiling hot. 16Thus, because you are lukewarm, and not boiling hot nor cold, I am about to vomit you from out of my mouth. 17For you say that, I am rich and am enriched, and [2no 3need 1have]. And you do not know that you are the miserable, and the pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. 18I advise you to buy gold from me purified by fire, that you should be rich, and [4garments 3with white 1that 2you should be covered], and [4should not 5be made manifest 1the 2shame 3of your nakedness]; and [2collyrium 1rub] upon your eyes, that you should see! 19I, as many as I should be fond of, I reprove and I correct. Be zealous then and repent! 20Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any should hear my voice, and should open the door, even I will enter to him, and have supper with him, and he with me. 21The one overcoming I will give to him to sit with me on my throne, as even I overcame and sat with my father on his throne. 22The one having an ear, hear what the spirit says to the assemblies!
