Message to Thyatira

18 "And to the angel of the church in 1Thyatira write: 2The Son of God, 3who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this:
19 '4I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first.
20 'But 5I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman 6Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they 7commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
21 '8I gave her time to repent, and she 9does not want to repent of her immorality.
22 'Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who 10commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless * they repent of her deeds.
23 'And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who 11searches the minds and hearts; and 12I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.
24 'But I say to you, the rest who are in 13Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the 14deep things of Satan, as they call them-I 15place no other burden on you.
26 '18He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds 19until the end, 20TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS;
27 AND HE SHALL 21RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, 22AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father;
28 and I will give him 23the morning star.
29 '24He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
