51The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never 2blot his name out of 3the book of life. 4I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.65He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
7"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: 'The words of 6the holy one, 7the true one, 8who has the key of David, 9who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.8"'I know your works. Behold, I have set before you 10an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.9Behold, I will make those of 11the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie--behold, 12I will make them come and bow down before your feet and they will learn that 13I have loved you.1014Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try 15those who dwell on the earth.1116I am coming soon. 17Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize 18your crown.1219The one who conquers, I will make him 20a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him 21the name of my God, and 22the name of the city of my God, 23the new Jerusalem, 24which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own 25new name.1326He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
14"And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: 'The words of the 27Amen, 28the faithful and true witness, 29the beginning of God's creation.15"'I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. 30Would that you were either cold or hot!
