King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 14 "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation.
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 16 So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest , I am rich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 17 You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed , and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear ; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see . 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
19 As many as I love , I rebuke and chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent . 19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.
20 Behold , I stand at the door, and knock : if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame , and am set down with my Father in his throne. 21 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
