1 To the angel of the church which is in Ephesos, write: These saith the Holder of all, and of the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven candlesticks of gold.
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and (that) thou canst not bear evils; and hast tried those who say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.
3 And thou hast patience, and hast laboured on account of my name, and hast not fainted.
4 But I have against thee, because thy first love thou hast forsaken.
5 Remember, therefore, from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works. But if not, I will come to thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from its place, if thou convert not.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the works of the Nikolitu, which also I (hate).
7 He who hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him who overcometh I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of my God.
8 And to the angel of the church which is in Smurna, write: These saith the First and the Last, who was dead, and liveth.
9 I know thy works, and affliction, and poverty, but thou art rich; and the blasphemy of them who say of themselves that they are Jihudoyee, and are not, but the synagogue of Satana.
10 Fear not any thing of those that thou art to suffer; for, behold, it will be that the accuser will cast some of you into prison, so that you may be tried; and you will have affliction ten days. Be faithful unto the death, and I will give thee the crown of life.
11 He who hath ears, let him hear what saith the Spirit to the churches. He who overcometh shall not be injured by the second death.
12 And to the angel of the church which is in Pergamos, write: These saith he who hath the sharp sword with two edges.
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, where (is) the throne of Satana; and thou hast held my name, and not denied my faith in those days when my witness was exposed, my faithful one, who was killed with you where dwelleth Satana.
14 But I have against thee a little, because thou hast there those who hold the doctrine of Belam, who taught Balok to cast a stumbling-block before the sons of Israel, to eat that which the sons of idols (eat), and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou who hold the doctrine of the Nikolitu: of it,
16 in like (manner), repent; and if not, I will come to thee quickly, and will war against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He who hath ears, let him hear what saith the Spirit to the churches. To him who overcometh will I give to eat of the manna which is hidden; and I will give to him the white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth but he who receiveth.
18 And to the angel and church which is in Thiatiros, write: These saith the Son of Aloha, who hath his eyes as the flame of fire, and his feet like refined brass.
19 I know thy works, and thy love and faith and service; and also thy patience, and thy last works to be greater than the first.
20 But I have against thee that thou permittest thy wife Izabel, who calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat what the sons of idols (eat).
21 And I gave her time when she might convert, and she willed not to repent of her fornication.
22 Behold, I cast her into a bed, and those who have committed adultery with her into great affliction, if they repent not of their works.
23 And her sons will I kill with death, and all the churches shall know that I am he who searcheth the reins and the hearts: and I will give to you every one according to your works.
24 But to you I say, to those of the rest who are in Thiatiros, all them who have not this doctrine, the men who know not the depths Of Satana, as they speak; I will not throw upon you another burden;
25 but that which you have, hold, until I come.
26 And he who conquereth, and he who keepeth until the end my works, I will give to him power over the peoples,
27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, and as a vessel of the potter shall they be destroyed, as also I have received from my Father;
28 and I will give to him the morning star.
29 He who hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
