"And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: 'The words of the Son of God, 1who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.
2"'I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first.
But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman 3Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants4to practice sexual immorality and 5to eat food sacrificed to idols.
I gave her time to repent, but 6she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.
Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works,
and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he 7who searches mind and heart, and 8I will give to each of you according to your works.
But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call 9the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I 10do not lay on you any other burden.
Only hold fast 11what you have until I come.
12The one who conquers and who keeps my works 13until the end, 14to him I will give authority over the nations,
and 15he will 16rule them with a rod of iron, 17as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father.
And I will give him 18the morning star.
19He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
