To the Church in Smyrna

8 "To the angel of the church in Smyrna5 write: These are the words of him who is the First and the Last,6 who died and came to life again.7 9 I know your afflictions and your poverty--yet you are rich!8 I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not,9 but are a synagogue of Satan.10 10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you,11 and you will suffer persecution for ten days.12 Be faithful,13 even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.14 11 He who has an ear, let him hear15 what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death.16

To the Church in Pergamum

12 "To the angel of the church in Pergamum17 write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword.18 13 I know where you live--where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me,19 even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness,20 who was put to death in your city--where Satan lives.21 14 Nevertheless, I have a few things against you:22 You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam,23 who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols24 and by committing sexual immorality.25 15 Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.26 16 Repent27 therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.28 17 He who has an ear, let him hear29 what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes,30 I will give some of the hidden manna.31 I will also give him a white stone with a new name32 written on it, known only to him who receives it.33
