And say to Archippus: be taking heed unto the ministry which thou hast accepted in the Lord, - that, the same, thou fulfil.
And unto Apphia our sister. And unto Archippus our fellow-soldier, and unto the assembly which meeteth, at thy house:
And, unto the messenger of the assembly, in Laodicea, write: - These things, saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works; - that neither, cold, art thou, nor hot: I would that, cold, thou hadst been, or hot. read more. Thus, because, lukewarm, thou art, and neither hot nor cold, I am about to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, Rich, am I, and have become enriched, and, of nothing, have I need, and knowest not that, thou, art the wretched one, and pitiable, and destitute, and blind, and naked, I counsel thee to buy of me, gold refined by fire, that thou mayest become rich, - and white raiment, that thou mayest array thyself, and, the shame of thy nakedness, may not be made manifest, - and eye-salve, to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see. I, as many as I tenderly love, I convict and put under discipline: be zealous, therefore, and repent.
