9I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan,1 who claim to be Jews though they are not,2 but are liars--I will make them come and fall down at your feet3 and acknowledge that I have loved you.410Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you5 from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world6 to test7 those who live on the earth.811I am coming soon.9 Hold on to what you have,10 so that no one will take your crown.1112Him who overcomes12 I will make a pillar13 in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God14 and the name of the city of my God,15 the new Jerusalem,16 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 hear17 what the Spirit says to the churches.
14"To the angel of the church in Laodicea18 write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness,19 the ruler of God's creation.2015I know your deeds,21 that you are neither cold nor hot.22 I wish you were either one or the other!16So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth.17You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.'23 But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.2418I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire,25 so you can become rich; and white clothes26 to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness;27 and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline.28 So be earnest, and repent.29
