Revelation of John 2

By the messenger of the in Ephesus congregation do thou write: These things says the one holding the seven stars in the right of himself, the one walking in midst of the seven lampstands the golden. I know the works of thee, and the toil of thee, and the patient endurance of thee, and that not thou art able to bear with bad ones; and thou hast tried those declaring themselves apostles to be, and not they are; and thou hast found them liars; and patient endurance thou hast, and thou hast suffered on account of the name of me, and not thou hast wearied. But I have against thee, because the love of thee the first thou hast relaxed. Do thou remember therefore whence thou hast fallen, and change thy mind, and the first works do thou; if but not, I am coming to thee speedily, and I will remove the lampstand of thee out of the place of itself, if not thou dost change thy mind. But that thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. The one having an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the congregations. To the one overcoming I will give to him to eat from the wood of life, which is in the paradise of the God of me. And by the messenger of the in Smyrna congregation do thou write: These things says the first and the last, who became dead, and lived; I know of thee the works, and the affliction, and the poverty, (but rich thou art,) and the blasphemy from those declaring Jews to be themselves, and not are, but an assembly of the adversary. 10 Not fear thou the things thou art about to suffer; lo, is about to cast the accuser from of you into prison, so that you may be tried; and you shall have affliction days ten. Be thou faithful till death, and I will give to thee the crown of the life. 11 The one having an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the congregations. The one overcoming not not he may be hurt by the death the second. 12 And by the messenger of the in Pergamos congregation do thou write: These things says the one having the broad sword that two-mouthed the sharp. 13 I know the works of thee, and where thou dwellest, where the throne of the adversary; and thou holdest fast the name of me, and not thou didst deny the faith of me, even in those days in which Antipas the witness of me the faithful, who was killed among you, where the adversary dwells. 14 But I have against thee a few things, because thou hast there some holding the teaching of Balaam, who instructed the Balak to cast a stumbling-block before the sons of Israel, to eat idol sacrifices and to fornicate. 15 So hast also thou some holding the teaching of the Nicolaitans in like manner. 16 Change thy mind therefore; if but not, I am coming to thee quickly, and I will war with them by the broadsword of the mouth of me. 17 The one having an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the congregations. To the one coming I will give to him of the manna of that having been hidden, and I will give to him a pebble white, and on the pebble a name new having been written, which no one knows if not the one receiving. 18 And by the messenger of the in Thyatira congregation write: These things says the son of the God, the one having the eyes of himself as a flame of fire, and the feet of him like to fine white brass. 19 I know of thee the works, and the love, and the faith, and the service, and the patient endurance of thee, and the works of thee the last more of the first. 20 But I have against thee, because thou lettest alone the wife of thee Jezebel, the one calling herself a prophetess, and she teaches and seduces the my bond-servants, to fornicate and to eat idol sacrifices. 21 And I gave to her time so that she might reform, and not she wills to reform from the fornication of herself; 22 lo, I cast her into a bed, and those committing adultery with her into affliction great, if not they should reform from the works of her, 23 and the children of her I will kill with death; and I shall know all the congregations, that I am the one searching reins and hearts; and I will give to you to each one according to the works of you. 24 To you but I say, to the remaining ones to those in Thyatira, as many as not hold the teaching this, who not knew the depths of the adversary (as they say). Not I will lay on you other burden; 25 but what you have, hold fast till of which I may have come. 26 And the one overcoming, and the one keeping till an end the works of me, I will give to him authority over the nations; 27 and he shall rule them with a rod made of iron, as the vessels those earthen ones it is breaking together, as also I received from of the Father of me; 28 and I will give to him thew star the morning. 29 The one having an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the congregations.
