Revelation of John 3

And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; The one having the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars, says these things; I know your works, that you have a name that you are living, and are dead. Be you watchful, and strengthen the remaining things, which are about to die. For I have not found your works perfect before my God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If you do not watch, I will come as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come upon you. But you have a few names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: because they are worthy. The one conquering shall thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not blot out his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and in the presence of his angels. Let the one having ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; The holy, true one, the one having the key of David, the one opening, and no one shall shut; and the one shutting, and no one shall open; says these things. I know your works; behold, I have given before you an open door, which no one is able to shut: and you have a little power, and you have kept my word, and not denied my name. Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are lying; behold, I will make them that they shall come and worship before thy feet, and may know that I have loved thee with divine love. 10 Because you have kept the word of my patience, and I will keep you from the hour of temptation, which is about to come upon the whole world, to try those dwelling upon the earth. 11 I am coming quickly: hold fast that which you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 The one conquering, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out no more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God: and my new name. 13 Let the one having ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write; The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God, says these things; 15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were either cold or hot. 16 Thus because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am about to spew you out of my mouth. 17 Because you are saying, That I am rich, and have increased in riches, and have need as to nothing, and do you not know that you are miserable, and pitiful, and poor, and blind, and naked? 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold which has been purified by the fire, in order that you may be rich; and white garments, in order that you may be clothed, and the shame of your nakedness may not be exposed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. 19 So many as I love, I rebuke and chastise; be zealous, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and am knocking: if any one may hear my voice, and may open the door, I will come in unto him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 The one conquering, I will give unto him to sit with me on my throne, as I indeed have conquered, and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Let the one having ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
