1 And to the agent of the congregation in Sardis write, These things says he who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou have a name that thou live, and thou are dead.
2 Become thou watchful, and strengthen the remaining things that thou were going to throw away, for I have not found thy works made complete before my God.
3 Remember therefore how thou have received and heard, and be on guard, and repent. If therefore thou will not watch, I will come upon thee as a thief, and thou will, no, not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 But thou have a few names in Sardis who did not defile their garments. And they will walk with me in white, because they are worthy.
5 He who overcomes, this man will be clothed in white garments, and I will, no, not erase his name out of the book of life. And I will acknowledge his name before my Father, and before his agents.
