You have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and you have found them to be liars. NIV 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. CSB 3 You also possess endurance and have tolerated [many things] because of My name, and have not grown weary. NIV 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. CSB 4 But I have this against you: you have abandoned the love [you had] at first.

Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place-unless you repent. NIV 5 Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.

Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. NIV 10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer.

You have some there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to place a stumbling block in front of the sons of Israel: to eat meat sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality. NIV 14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality.

NIV 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. CSB 21 I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to repent of her sexual immorality. NIV 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. CSB 22 Look! I will throw her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her practices. NIV 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. CSB 23 I will kill her children with the plague.
