What is commanded to be written to the angels, that is, the ministers of the Churches of Ephesus,
Revelation 2:1 Unto the messenger of þe congregacyon of Ephesus wryte: these thynges sayth he, that holdeth the seuen starres in hys ryght hande, and that walketh in the myddes of the seuen golden candelstickes. Revelation 2:2 I knowe thy workes, and thy labour, & thy pacience, and how thou cannest not forbeare them whych are euyll: and hast examined them whych saye they are Apostles, and are not: & hast founde them lyars, Revelation 2:3 & hast suffred. And hast pacience: and for my names sake hast labored, and hast not faynted. Revelation 2:4 Neuerthelesse, I haue sum what agaynst the, because thou haste lefte thy fyrst loue. Revelation 2:5 Remember therfore from whence thou art fallen, & repent, and do the fyrst worckes. Or elles I wyll come vnto the shortly, & wyll remoue thy candelsticke out of his place, except thou repent. Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, because thou hatest the dedes of the Nycolaitans, which dedes I also hate. Revelation 2:7 Lett hym that hath eares, heare what the sprete sayth vnto þe congregacyons. To hym that ouercommeth, wyll I geue to eate of the tre of lyfe, which is in þe myddes of the Paradyse of God.
Revelation 2:8 And vnto the angell of the congregacyon of Smyrna wryte: These thynges sayth he that is fyrst, & the laste, which was deed, and is alyue. Revelation 2:9 I know thy workes & tribulacyon and pouerte, but thou art ryche. And I knowe þe blasphemy of them, whych call them selues Iewes & are not: but are the congregacyon of Sathan. Revelation 2:10 Feare none of those thynges, which thou shalt suffre. Beholde, the deuyll shall caste some of you into preson, to tempte you, & ye shall haue tribulacyon ten dayes. Be faythfull vnto þe deeth, and I wyll geue the a croune of lyfe. Revelation 2:11 Let hym that hath eares, heare, what þe sprete sayth to the congregacyons. He that ouercommeth, shall not be hurt of the seconde deeth.
Revelation 2:12 And to the messenger of the congregacyon in Pergamos wryte: This sayth he, which hath the sharpe swearde with two edges: Revelation 2:13 I knowe thy workes, & where thou dwellest, euen where Sathanas seat is, and thou kepest my name, & hast not denyed my fayth. And in my dayes Antipas was a faythfull wytnes of myne, whych was slayne amonge you, where Sathan dwelleth. Revelation 2:14 But I haue a fewe thynges agaynst þe: because thou hast there, them that mayntayne þe doctrine of Balam which taught in Balake, to put occasyon of synne before the chyldren of Israel, þt they shulde eate of meate dedycat vnto ydoles, and commyt fornycacyon. Revelation 2:15 Euen so hast thou them that mayntayne þe doctryne of the Nycolaitans, which thynge I hate. Revelation 2:16 But be conuerted, or elles I wyll come vnto þe shortly, and wyll fight agaynst them with þe swearde of my mouth. Revelation 2:17 Let hym that hath eares, heare, what þe sprete sayth vnto þe congregacyons. To hym that ouercommeth, wyll I geue to eate Manna that is hyd, & wyll geue hym a whyte stone, & in the stone a newe name wrytten, which no man knoweth, sauynge he that receaueth it.
Thyatira: and what is commended, or found wanting in them.
Revelation 2:18 And vnto þe messenger of þe congregacyon of Thyatira wryte. Thys sayth the sonne of God, which hath eyes lyke vnto a flamme of fyre, & hys fete are lyke brasse: Revelation 2:19 I knowe thy workes, & thy loue, seruyce, and fayth; and thy pacience, & thy dedes, which are mo at the last then at the fyrst. Revelation 2:20 Notwith standynge I haue a feaw thynges agaynst the, because thou sufferest that woman Iesabell, which called her selfe a Prophetise, to teache & to deceaue my seruauntes, to make them commyt fornycacyon, & to eate meates offered vp vnto ydoles. Revelation 2:21 And I gaue her space to repent of her fornycacyon, & she repented not. Revelation 2:22 Beholde, I wyll cast her into a beed: & them that commyt fornycacyon with her into gret aduersytie, excepte they turne from their deades. Revelation 2:23 And I wyll kyll her chyldren with deeth. And all the congregacyons shall knowe, that I am he which searcheth the reynes & hertes. And I wyll geue vnto euery one of you acordynge vnto hys workes. Revelation 2:24 Unto you I saye, and vnto other of them of Thyatira, as many as haue not this lernyng & which haue not knowen the depnes of Sathan (as they saye) I wyll put vpon you none other burthen, Revelation 2:25 but þt which ye haue already. Holde fast tyll I come, Revelation 2:26 & whosoeuer ouercommeth & kepeth my workes vnto the ende, to hym wyll I geue power ouer nacyons, Revelation 2:27 & he shall rule them wt a rodde of yron: & as þe vessels of a potter, shall they be broken to sheuers. Euen as I receaued of my father, Revelation 2:28 so wyll I geue hym the mornynge starre. Revelation 2:29 Let hym that hath eares, heare, what þe sprete sayth to the congregacyons.
