8 And to the angel of the church of Smyrna write thou, These things saith the first and the last, that was dead, and liveth.
9 I know thy tribulation, and thy poverty, but thou art rich; and thou art blasphemed of them, that say, that they be Jews, and be not, but be the synagogue of Satan.
10 Dread thou nothing of these things, which thou shalt suffer. Lo! the devil shall send some of you into prison, that ye be tempted [that ye be proved]; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful to the death [Be thou faithful unto the death], and I shall give to thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath ears, hear he, what the Spirit saith to the churches. He that overcometh, shall not be hurt of the second death.
