King James Version

Revelation 3:1-22

1And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. 3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 5He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

7And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

启示录 3:1-22

给撒狄教会的信

1“你要写信告诉撒狄教会的天使,有上帝的七灵又有七颗星的主说,

‘我知道你的行为,你名义上活着,实际上是死的。 2你要警醒!把所剩无几、奄奄一息的生命振作起来,因为我发现你的行为在我的上帝面前不纯全。 3因此,要回想你以前所领受、所听见的教导,遵守这些教导,并且悔改。你若不警醒,我必在你意想不到的时候像贼一样忽然来到。 4不过在撒狄,你还有几个人未曾玷污自己的衣服,他们要穿白袍与我同行,因为他们配得这样。 5得胜者必同样穿上白袍,我绝不会从生命册上抹去他的名字,我必在我父和众天使面前承认他的名。

6‘圣灵对各教会所说的话,凡有耳朵的都应当听。’

给非拉铁非教会的信

7“你要写信告诉非拉铁非教会的天使,那位圣洁、真实、拿着大卫的钥匙、开了门无人能关、关了门无人能开的主说,

8‘我知道你的行为,你力量微小,却遵守了我的教导,没有背弃我的名。所以,看啊!我在你面前为你打开了一扇无人能关闭的门。 9看啊!我要使撒旦的同伙,就是那些假冒犹太人的说谎者,在你面前俯伏下拜,让他们知道你是我所疼爱的。 10因为你遵守我有关坚忍的教导,所以当将来的试炼临到全人类的时候,我必使你免受磨难。 11我很快就要来了!你要持守你所拥有的,免得有人夺去你的冠冕。 12我要使得胜者在我上帝的殿中作栋梁,永不离开。我要将我上帝的名号和我上帝圣城的名号,就是从天上我上帝那里降下来的新耶路撒冷和我自己的新名号,都刻在他上面。

13‘圣灵对各教会所说的话,凡有耳朵的都应当听。’

给老底嘉教会的信

14“你要写信告诉老底嘉教会的天使,那位实实在在3:14 那位实实在在”希腊文是“那位阿们的”。、诚信无伪的见证人,就是上帝所造万物的元首说,

15‘我知道你的行为,你不冷也不热。我情愿你或冷或热, 16可是现在你却像温水一样不冷不热,我必将你从我口中吐出去! 17你说,我很富有,已经发了财,什么都不缺。你却不知道自己困苦、可怜、贫穷、瞎眼、赤身露体。 18我劝你向我买精炼的金子,使你真正富有。你也要向我买白袍穿在身上,好遮盖你赤身露体的羞辱。你也要向我买眼药抹眼睛,使你能看见。 19凡我所爱的,我都会责备、管教。因此,你要热心起来,也要悔改。 20看啊!我站在门外敲门,若有谁闻声开门,我必进去,我与他,他与我,一同坐席吃饭。 21得胜者可以和我一同坐在我的宝座上,正如我得胜后与我父一同坐在祂的宝座上一样。

22‘圣灵对各教会所说的话,凡有耳朵的都应当听。’”
