Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:3 - I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name’s sake, and you have not grown weary.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:4 - But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:5 - Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:6 - Yet this you have: you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:7 - He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.’

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:8 - “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:9 - “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander[fn] of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:10 - Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:11 - He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:14 - But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:15 - So also you have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:16 - Therefore repent. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:17 - He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:18 - “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:19 - “‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:20 - But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants[fn] to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:21 - I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:22 - Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works,

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:23 - and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:24 - But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:25 - Only hold fast what you have until I come.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:26 - The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations,

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:27 - and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:28 - And I will give him the morning star.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 2:29 - He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
