1 And to the messenger of the church in 1Sardis write: These things says He who has the 2aseven Spirits of God and the 2bseven stars: I cknow your works, that you have a 3name that you are dliving, and yet you are edead.
3 aRemember therefore how you have received and heard, and keep it and brepent. If therefore you will not watch, I will ccome as a 1dthief, and you shall by no means know at what ehour I will come upon you.
5 He who 1aovercomes will be 2clothed thus, in bwhite garments, and I shall by no means 3cerase his name out of the 4dbook of life, and I will 5econfess his name before My Father and before His angels.
7 And to the messenger of the church in 1Philadelphia write: These things says the 2aHoly One, the btrue One, the One who has the 3ckey of David, the One who opens and no one will shut, and shuts and no one opens:
9 Behold, I will make those of the 1asynagogue of bSatan, those who call themselves cJews and are 2not, but lie — behold, I will cause them to come and dfall 3prostrate before your feet and to know that I have eloved you.
12 He who 1aovercomes, him I will make a 2bpillar in the ctemple of My God, and he shall by no means go out anymore, and I will write upon him the 3dname of My God and the name of the city of My God, the eNew Jerusalem, which descends out of heaven from My God, and My fnew name.
