What is commanded to be written to the angels, that is, the ministers of the Churches of Ephesus,
Revelation 2:1 Vnto the Angel of the Churche at Ephesus, write: these thynges sayth he that holdeth the seuen starres in his ryght hande, and that walketh in the middes of the seuen golden candlestickes: Revelation 2:2 I knowe thy workes, and thy labour, and thy patience, and howe thou canst not forbeare them which are euyll: and hast examined them which say they are Apostles, and are not, and hast founde them lyers: Revelation 2:3 And hast suffred, and hast patience, and for my names sake hast laboured, and hast not faynted. Revelation 2:4 Neuertheles, I haue [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first loue. Revelation 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first workes: Or els I wyll come vnto thee shortly, & wyll remoue thy candlesticke out of his place, except thou repet. Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, because thou hatest the deedes of the Nicolaitans, which (deedes) I also hate. Revelation 2:7 Let hym that hath an eare, heare what ye spirite sayth vnto the Churches. To hym that ouercommeth, wyll I geue to eate of the tree of lyfe, which is in the middes of the paradise of God.
Revelation 2:8 And vnto the Angel of the Churche of Smyrna, write: These thynges sayth he that is first and the last, which was dead, and is alyue. Revelation 2:9 I knowe thy workes, and tribulation, and pouertie: but thou art riche. And I know the blasphemie of them which cal them selues Iewes, and are not, but (are) the synagogue of Satan. Revelation 2:10 Feare none of those thynges, which thou shalt suffer: Beholde, the deuyll shall caste some of you into prison, to tempt you, and ye shall haue tribulation ten dayes. Be faythfull vnto the death, and I wyll geue thee a crowne of lyfe. Revelation 2:11 Let hym that hath an eare, heare what the spirite sayth vnto ye Churches. He that ouercommeth, shall not be hurt of the seconde death.
Revelation 2:12 And to the Angell of the Churche in Pergamos, write: This saith he which hath ye sharpe sword with two edges: Revelation 2:13 I knowe thy workes, and where thou dwellest, euen where Satans seate is, and thou kepest my name, and hast not denyed my fayth: Euen in those dayes when Antipas my faythfull martir was slayne among you, where Satan dwelleth. Revelation 2:14 But I haue a fewe thynges agaynst thee, because thou hast there, them that maynetayne the doctrine of Balaam, whiche taught in Balacke, to put a stumblyng blocke before the chyldren of Israel, that they shoulde eate of meate dedicate vnto idols, & commit fornicatio. Revelation 2:15 Euen so hast thou the that maintayne the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thyng I hate. Revelation 2:16 Repent, or els I wyll come vnto thee shortly, and wyll fyght agaynst them with the sworde of my mouth. Revelation 2:17 Let hym that hath an eare, heare what ye spirite sayth vnto the Churches. To hym that ouercommeth, wyll I geue to eate Manna that is hyd, and wyll geue hym a white stone, and in the stone a newe name written, which no man knoweth, sauyng he yt receaueth it.
Thyatira: and what is commended, or found wanting in them.
Revelation 2:18 And vnto the Angell of the Churche of Thyatira, write: This saith ye sonne of God, who hath eyes lyke vnto a flambe of fyre, and his feete are like fine brasse. Revelation 2:19 I knowe thy workes, and thy loue, seruice, and fayth, and thy patience, and thy deedes, which are mo at the last the at the first. Revelation 2:20 Notwithstandyng, I haue a fewe thynges agaynst thee, because thou sufferest that woman Iesabel, which called her selfe a prophetisse, to teache, and to deceaue my seruauntes, to make them commit fornication, and to eate meates offred vp vnto idols. Revelation 2:21 And I gaue her space to repent of her fornication, and she repented not. Revelation 2:22 Beholde, I wyll cast her into a bed, and them that commit fornication with her into great aduersitie, except they turne from their deedes: Revelation 2:23 And I wyll kyll her chyldren with death, & all the Churches shall knowe, that I am he which searcheth the raynes and heartes: And I wyll geue vnto euery one of you, accordyng vnto his workes. Revelation 2:24 Vnto you I say, and vnto other of the of Thyatira, as many as haue not this learnyng, & which haue not knowe the deepenesse of Satan, as they say, I wyll put vpon you none other burthen: Revelation 2:25 But that which ye haue alredy, holde fast tyll I come, Revelation 2:26 And whosoeuer ouercommeth, and kepeth my workes vnto the ende, to hym wyll I geue power ouer nations, Revelation 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rodde of yron: and as the vessels of a potter, shall they be broken to sheuers: Revelation 2:28 Euen as I receaued of my father, so wyll I geue hym the mornyng starre. Revelation 2:29 Let hym that hath an eare, heare what the spirite sayth to the Churches.
