Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
18 "To the angel of the church in Thyatira write: "This is the message from the Son of God, whose eyes blaze like fire, whose feet shine like polished brass. 18 "To the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze.
19 I know what you do. I know your love, your faithfulness, your service, and your patience. I know that you are doing more now than you did at first. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.
20 But this is what I have against you: you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a messenger of God. By her teaching she misleads my servants into practicing sexual immorality and eating food that has been offered to idols. 20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.
21 I have given her time to repent of her sins, but she does not want to turn from her immorality. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling.
22 And so I will throw her on a bed where she and those who committed adultery with her will suffer terribly. I will do this now unless they repent of the wicked things they did with her. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.
23 I will also kill her followers, and then all the churches will know that I am the one who knows everyone's thoughts and wishes. I will repay each of you according to what you have done. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.
24 "But the rest of you in Thyatira have not followed this evil teaching; you have not learned what the others call "the deep secrets of Satan.' I say to you that I will not put any other burden on you. 24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan's so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any other burden on you):
25 But until I come, you must hold firmly to what you have. 25 Only hold on to what you have until I come.
26 To those who win the victory, who continue to the end to do what I want, I will give the same authority that I received from my Father: I will give them authority over the nations, to rule them with an iron rod and to break them to pieces like clay pots. I will also give them the morning star. 26 To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations--
29 "If you have ears, then, listen to what the Spirit says to the churches! 29 'He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery -- just as I have received authority from my Father.
28 28 I will also give him the morning star.
29 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
