Revelation 2 Worrell - "To the angel of the assembly in Ephesus write these



1 "To the angel of the assembly in Ephesus write these things," saith He Who holdeth the seven stars in His right hand, He Who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks: 2 "I know your works and your toil, and your patience, and that you cannot bear evil men; and you tried those who call themselves apostles, and are not, and found them false; 3 and you have patience, and did bear for My name's sake, and have not grown weary. 4 But I have it against you, that you left your first love. 5 Remember, therefore whence you have fallen, and repent, and do your first works; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your candlestick out of its place, if you do not repent. 6 But this you have, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the assemblies. To him that overcomes, to him will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God.
8 "And to the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write these things," saith the First and the Last, Who became dead, and lived: 9 "I know your tribulation, and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Fear not the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the Devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.
11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the assemblies. He that overcomes shall in nowise be hurt by the second death.
12 "And to the angel of the assembly in Pergamum write these things," saith He Who hath the sharp, two-edged sword: 13 "I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those holding the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling-block before the sons of Israel, to eat idol-sacrifices, and to commit fornication. 15 So you have also those holding the teaching of the Nicolaitans, in like manner. 16 Repent, therefore, or else I am coming to you quickly, and will make war with them with the sword of My mouth.
17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the assemblies. To him that overcomes, to him will I give of the Hidden Manna; and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no one knows, but he that receives it.
18 "And to the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write these things." saith the Son of God, Who hath His eyes as a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass: 19 "I know your works, and your love, and faith, and ministry, and your patience; and your last works to be more than the first. 20 But I have it against you, that you suffer the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess; and she teaches and seduces My servants to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices. 21 And I gave her time, that she might repent; and she is not willing to repent of her fornication. 22 Behold, I cast her into a bed, and those committing adultery with her, into great tribulation, if they repent not of their works. 23 And her children I will slay with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am He Who searcheth the reins and hearts; and I will give to you, each one, according to your works. 24 But to you I say, to the rest who are in Thyatira, as many as have not this teaching, who knew not the deep things of Satan, as they say, I cast on you no other burden; 25 nevertheless, that which ye have, hold fast till I come. 26 And he that overcomes, and he that keeps My works until the end, to him will I give authority over the nations;
27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of earthenware are broken in pieces, as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.
29 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the assemblies.
