1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things, saith he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest and art dead.
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die; for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3 Remember, therefore, of that which thou hast received and heard and hold to it and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 Thou hast a few persons also in Sardis who have not defiled their garments, and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy.
5 He that overcomes shall likewise be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
6 He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things, saith he that is Holy and True, he who has the key of David, who opens and no one shuts and shuts, and no one opens;
8 I know thy works; behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no one can shut it, for thou hast a little strength and hast kept my word and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but do lie; behold, I will constrain them to come and worship before thy feet and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the entre world, to try those that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly; hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown.
12 He that overcomes I will make 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 [which is] the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from [and] with my God, and [I will write upon him] my new name.
13 He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; Behold, he who saith, Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God:
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing and knowest not that thou art wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined in the fire, that thou may be made rich; and clothed in white raiment, so that the shame of thy nakedness not be uncovered; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou may see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten; be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door and call; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame and have sat down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.:
