And to the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write: These things says the first and the last, who became a dead, and lived: b9
I know thy tribulation and thy poverty; but thou art rich; and the railing of those who say that they themselves are Jews, and are not, but a synagogue of Satan.
Fear nothing [of] what thou art about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give to thee the crown of life.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He that overcomes shall in no wise c be injured of the second death.
