And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write: These things saith he who is having the Seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars: I have known thy works, and that thou hast the name that thou dost live, and thou art dead;
become watching, and strengthen the rest of the things that are about to die, for I have not found thy works fulfilled before God.
`Remember, then, how thou hast received, and heard, and be keeping, and reform: if, then, thou mayest not watch, I will come upon thee as a thief, and thou mayest not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis who did not defile their garments, and they shall walk with me in white, because they are worthy.
He who is overcoming -- this one -- shall be arrayed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the scroll of the life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before His messengers.
He who is having an ear -- let him hear what the Spirit saith to the assemblies.
