1And to the Malakh of the congregation in Sardis write: “These things says He who has the seven Rukhot of Elohim and the seven stars: I know your works; you have a name that you are alive, and yet you are dead. 2Awake, and hold fast to the things which remain but are ready to die; for I have not found your works perfect before my Elohim. 3Remember, therefore, just as you have received and heard, so hold fast and repent. And if, therefore, you do not awake, I will come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at what hour I will come upon you. 4But you have a few names at Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy. 5He who overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white robes; and I will not blot his name out of the Sefer HaKhayim, but I will confess his name before Avi and before His Malakhim. 6He who has ears, let him hear what HaRu’akh says to the congregations.”
7And to the Malakh of the congregation in Philadelphia write: “These things says He who is Kadosh, He who is true, He who has the keys of David, He who opens and no man shuts, and shuts, and no man opens; 8I know your works, and behold, I have set before you an open gate which no man can shut, for you have but little strength, and yet you have obeyed my word and have not denied my Name. 9Behold, I turn over those of the Beit K’nesset of HaSatan, who say that they are Yehudim and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of testing which shall come upon the whole world to try those who dwell upon earth. 11Behold, I come quickly. Hold that fast which you have, so that no man takes your crown. 12He who overcomes I will make a pillar in the Heikhal of my Elohim, and he shall not go out again; and I will write upon him the Name of my Elohim and the Name of Yerushalayim HaKhadashah which comes down out of heaven from my Elohim; and I will write upon him my new Name. 13He who has ears, let him hear what HaRu’akh says to the congregations.”
14And to the Malakh of the congregation in Laodicea write: “These things says the Amein, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of Elohim; 15I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot; it is better to be either cold or hot. 16So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. 17You say, ‘I am rich, and my wealth has increased, and I need nothing;’ and you do not know that you are miserable, and helpless, and poor, and blind, and naked. 18I advise you to buy of me gold refined in the fire, that you may become rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, so that the shame of your nakedness may not be seen; and anoint your eyes with salve, that you may see. 19I rebuke and chasten all those whom I love; be zealous, therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him who overcomes I will grant to dwell with me on my throne, even as I also overcame and have dwelt with Avi on His throne. 22He who has ears, let him hear what HaRu’akh says to the congregations.”
