1"And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: 'The words of him 1who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars."'I know your works. You have the reputation 2of being alive, 3but you are dead.
2Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works 4complete in the sight of my God.
35Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, 6I will come 7like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.
4Yet you have still a few names in Sardis, people who have not 8soiled their garments, and they will walk with me 9in white, for they are 10worthy.
511The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never 12blot his name out of 13the book of life. 14I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
615He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
