Message to Ephesus

1 "To the angel of the church in Ephesus R75 write:

The One who holds the R76 seven stars in His right hand, the One who walks among R77 F13 the seven golden lampstands, says this:

2 `I R78 know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, F14 and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put R79 to the test those who call themselves apostles, R80 and they are not, and you found them to be false; 3 and you have perseverance F15 and have endured for R81 My name's sake, and have not grown weary. 4 `But I have this against you, that you have left R82 your first love. 5 `Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent R83 and do R84 the deeds F16 you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand R85 out of its place--unless you repent. 6 `Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, R86 which I also hate. 7 `He R87 who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To R88 him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the R89 tree of life which is in the Paradise R90 of God.'

Message to Smyrna

8 "And to the angel of the church in Smyrna R91 write:

The R92 first and the last, who was R93 F17 dead, and has come to life, says this:

9 `I know your tribulation R94 and your poverty R95 (but you are rich), R95 and the blasphemy by those who say R96 they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. R97 10 `Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, R98 and you will have tribulation for R99 ten days. Be F18 faithful R100 until death, and I will give you the R101 crown of life. 11 `He R102 who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He R103 who overcomes will not be hurt by the second R104 death.'

Message to Pergamum

12 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamum R105 write:

The One who has the R106 sharp two-edged sword says this:

13 `I know where you dwell, where Satan's R107 throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My R108 faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, R109 My faithful R110 one, who was killed among you, where R111 Satan dwells. 14 `But I R112 have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching R113 of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to R114 eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality. 15 `So you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans. R115 16 `Therefore repent; R116 or else I R117 am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the R118 sword of My mouth. 17 `He R119 who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To R119 him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, R120 and I will give him a white stone, and a new R121 name written on the stone which R122 no one knows but he who receives it.'

Message to Thyatira

18 "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira R123 write:

The R124 Son of God, who R125 has eyes F19 like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this:

19 `I R126 know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, F20 and that your deeds F21 of late are greater than at F22 first. 20 `But I R127 have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, R128 who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit R129 acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 `I R130 gave her time to repent, and she does R131 not want to repent of her immorality. 22 `Behold, I will throw her on F23 a bed of sickness, and those who commit R132 adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her F24 deeds. 23 `And I will kill her children with pestilence, F25 and all the churches will know that I am He who searches R133 the minds F26 and hearts; and I R134 will give to each one of you according to your deeds. 24 `But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, R135 who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep R136 things of Satan, as they call them--I place R137 no other burden on you. 25 `Nevertheless what R138 you have, hold fast until R139 I come. 26 `He R140 who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until R141 the end, TO R142 HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS F27 ; 27 AND HE SHALL RULE R143 F28 THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS R144 THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; 28 and I will give him the R145 morning star. 29 `He R146 who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
