Revelation of John 2

To the angel of the church which is at Ephesus write: These things saith he who holdeth all things, and the seven stars, in his right hand; he that walketh in the midst of the seven candlesticks of gold; I know thy works, and thy toil, and thy patience, and that thou canst not endure the wicked; and thou hast tried them who say they are legates, and are not; and thou hast found them liars. And thou hast had patience, and hast borne the burden, on account of my name, and hast not fainted. Yet I have a charge against thee, on account of thy former love, which thou hast left. Therefore remember whence thou hast fallen; and repent, and do the former works: or if not, I will come to thee quickly, and I will remove thy candlestick from its place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him who is victorious, will I give to eat of the tree of life which is in the paradise of my God. And to the angel of the church which is at Smyrna, write: These things saith the First and the Last, he who was dead, and liveth. I know thy works, and the affliction, and the poverty, (yet thou art rich ;) and the railing which is from them who say they are Jews, and they are not, but are of the congregation of Satan. 10 Be not terrified at any of the things thou art to suffer. For lo, the Accuser will throw some of you into custody, that ye may be tried; and there will be trouble to you ten days. Be faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life. 11 He that hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. He that is victorious, shall not be harmed by the second death. 12 And to the angel of the church at Pergamos, write: Thus saith he who hath the sharp two-edged sword; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where the throne of Satan is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied the faith of me, in those days when my faithful witness, who was slain among you, was made a spectacle where Satan dwelleth. 14 Yet I have a small charge against thee. Thou hast there them who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to throw a stumbling-block before the children of Israel, that they might eat the sacrifices of idols, and might commit whoredom. 15 So also thou hast them who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. In like manner, repent thou. 16 Or if not, I will come to thee quickly, and I will war upon them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that is victorious, will I give to eat of the hidden manna; and I will give him a white counter, and upon the counter a new name written, which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it. 18 And to the angel of the church at Thyatira, write: These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet like fine brass: 19 I know thy works, and love, and faith, and service, and also thy patience; and that these thy latter works are more than the former. 20 But I have a charge against thee, because thou sufferest thy woman Jezabel, who saith she is a prophetess, and teacheth, and seduceth my servants to whoredom, and to eating of the sacrifices of idols. 21 And I gave her a season for repentance, and she is not disposed to repent of her whoredom. 22 Behold, I will cast her upon a bed, and them who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their deeds. 23 And her children will I slay with death: and all the churches shall know, that I am he who searcheth reins and hearts; and I will render to each of you according to your works. 24 And I say to you, to the rest that are in Thyatira, to all them who have not received this doctrine, the men who have not known the profound things of Satan, as they say; I lay no other burden upon you: 25 but, what ye have, hold fast until I come. 26 And to him that is victorious, and to him that observeth my works unto the end, to him will I give authority, over the nations; 27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and like vessels of pottery, shall they be broken: as I also have received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
