King James VersionRevelation3


1 And unto the an­gel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath 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 how thou hast re­ceived and heard, and hold fast, and re­pent. If there­fore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not de­filed their gar­ments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are wor­thy. 5 He that over­cometh, the same shall 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 hath 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, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shut­teth; and shut­teth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: be­hold, I have set be­fore thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a lit­tle strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not de­nied my name. 9 Be­hold, I will make them of the syn­a­gogue of Sa­tan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; be­hold, I will make 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 world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Be­hold, I come quick­ly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that over­cometh will I make a pil­lar in the tem­ple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heav­en from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spir­it saith unto the church­es. 14 And unto the an­gel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the 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 tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white rai­ment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy naked­ness do not ap­pear; and anoint thine eyes with eye­salve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I re­buke and chas­ten: be zeal­ous there­fore, and re­pent. 20 Be­hold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that over­cometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also over­came, and am set down with my Fa­ther in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spir­it saith unto the church­es.
