Revelation of John 2

To the angel who is in the church at Ephesus write; The one holding the seven stars in his right hand, the one walking about in the midst of the golden candlesticks, says these things; I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and that you are not able to bear the wicked; and you have tried those who say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them to be liars: and you have patience and have borne with them for my name's sake, and have not fainted. But I have something against you, because you have left your first love. Remember therefore whence you have fallen, and repent, and do your first works; lest I come to you, and shall move your candlestick out of its place, if you do not repent. But you have this, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Let the one having ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches; to him who conquers I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God. And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; The first and the last, who was dead, and is alive, says these things: I know your tribulations, and your poverty, but you are rich; and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and they are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10 Fear not those things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that you may be tested; and you shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you a crown of life. 11 Let the one having ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches; The one conquering can never be hurt by the second death. 12 To the angel of the church in Pergamum write; The one having the sharp, two-edged sword says these things; 13 I know where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is: and you are holding fast my name, and did not deny my faith, in the days when Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there those holding the teachings of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the sons of Israel, and to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication. 15 So you also have those in a similar manner holding the teaching of the Nicolaitans. 16 Repent; otherwise I am coming to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 Let the one having ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches; unto the one conquering will I give to him of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone my new name having been written, which no one knows but the one receiving it. 18 And to the angel of the church among the Thyatireans write; The Son of God, the one having eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet like burnished brass, says these things; 19 I know your works, and your divine love, and faith, and ministry, and patience, and your works: the last more than the first. 20 But I have it against you, that you suffer the woman Jezebel, who says herself to be a prophet, and teaches and deceives my servants to commit fornication, and to cat things sacrificed to idols. 21 And I gave her time that she might repent, and she does not wish to repent of her fornication. 22 Behold, I cast her on a bed, and those who commit fornication along with her into great tribulation, until they shall repent of her works. 23 And I will slay her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am the one searching the reins and the hearts: and I will give to you each according to your works. 24 But I say to you, the rest who are among the Thyatireans, so many as have not this teaching, whosoever have not known the depth of Satan, as they say; I cast upon you no other burden. 25 Moreover hold fast that which you have, until I shall come. 26 And the one conquering and holding my works until the end, I will give unto him authority over the nations: 27 and he will shepherdize them with an iron rod: as the potter's vessels are broken to pieces; as I have received of my Father: 28 and I will give unto him the morning star. 29 Let the one having ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
