7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of the holy one, the true one,
who has the key of David,
who opens and no one will shut,
who shuts and no one opens:
8 I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
9I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but are lyingI will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you.
10Because you have kept my word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
11I am coming soon; hold fast to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.
12If you conquer, I will make you a pillar in the temple of my God; you will never go out of it. I will write on you the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem that comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
13Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the origin of Gods creation:
15 I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot.
16So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
17For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing. You do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
18Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich; and white robes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen; and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.
19I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.
20Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.
21To the one who conquers I will give a place with me on my throne, just as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
22Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
