          DASV: Revelation 2    

1 "To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
These things says the one who holds the seven stars in his
right hand, who walks in the middle of the seven golden
2 I know your works, your toil and your endurance, and that
you cannot tolerate evil. You have scrutinized those who claim
to be apostles but are not, and you have found them to be false.
3 I also realize that you have endured patiently and suffered
for my name's sake, and have not grown weary.
4 But I have this against you: you have left your first love.
5 Remember therefore where you have fallen from. Repent and
do the works you did at first. But if not I will come to you
and remove your lampstand out from its place, unless you repent
. 6 But this you have in your favor, that you hate the works of
the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 The one who has an ear needs to hear what the Spirit says to
the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will allow him to
eat from the tree of life that is in the Paradise of God."

8 "And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write:
      These things says the first and the last,
           the one who was dead and came back to life.
9 I know your troubles and your poverty (but you are rich). I am
aware of the slander of those who say they are Jews and are
not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
10 Do not be afraid of the things you are about to suffer. The
devil is about to throw some of you into prison, so that you
may be tested and you will have trouble for ten days. Be
faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life.
11 The one who has an ear needs to hear what the Spirit says
to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt
by the second death."

12 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write:
These things says he who has the sharp two-edged sword.
13 I know where you live, it is where Satan's throne is, yet
you are holding tight to my name, and did not deny your faith
in me, even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who
was killed among you, where Satan lives.
14 But I have a few things against you: You have some there who
hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put up
a stumbling block in front of the children of Israel, to eat
things sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality.
15 Similarly you also have some who hold the teaching of the
16 Repent therefore. If not, I will come to you quickly
and I will make war against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 The one who has an ear needs to hear what the Spirit says
to the churches. To him who is victorious, I will give some
of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone,
and on the stone will be written a new name, that no one
knows except the one who receives it."

18 "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a
flame of fire and feet like polished bronze.
19 I know your works--your love, faith, your service and
patience. I am aware that your last works are greater
than the first.
20 But I have this against you: you tolerate the woman Jezebel,
who calls herself a prophetess. She teaches and seduces
my servants to commit sexual immorality and to eat food
sacrificed to idols.
21 I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of
her sexual immorality.
22 Look, I am throwing her into bed, and those who commit
adultery with her will suffer greatly, unless they
repent of her deeds.
23 I will put her children to death, and all the churches
will know that I am the one who searches the minds and
hearts. I will give to each one of you according to
your works.
24 But I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not
hold this teaching, who have not followed the so called
"deep things of Satan," I do not put on you any other
25 Just hold on to what you have until I come.
26 The one who is victorious, and continues in my works
to the end, to that one I will give authority over
the nations.
27 He will rule them with a rod of iron, like clay pots
they will be shattered. Just as I also have received
from my Father,
28 I will give them the morning star.
29 The one who has ears needs to hear what the Spirit
says to the churches."
