5He who overcomes1 will, like them, be dressed in white.2 I will never blot out his name from the book of life,3 but will acknowledge his name before my Father4 and his angels.6He who has an ear, let him hear5 what the Spirit says to the churches.
7"To the angel of the church in Philadelphia6 write: These are the words of him who is holy7 and true,8 who holds the key of David.9 What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.8I know your deeds.10 See, I have placed before you an open door11 that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.129I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan,13 who claim to be Jews though they are not,14 but are liars--I will make them come and fall down at your feet15 and acknowledge that I have loved you.1610Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you17 from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world18 to test19 those who live on the earth.2011I am coming soon.21 Hold on to what you have,22 so that no one will take your crown.2312Him who overcomes24 I will make a pillar25 in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God26 and the name of the city of my God,27 the new Jerusalem,28 which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name.13He who has an ear, let him hear29 what the Spirit says to the churches.
14"To the angel of the church in Laodicea30 write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness,31 the ruler of God's creation.3215I know your deeds,33 that you are neither cold nor hot.34 I wish you were either one or the other!
