Message to Thyatira
18 “And to the angel of the church in aThyatira write:
bThe Son of God, cwho has 1eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this:
19 ‘aI know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and 1perseverance, and that your 2deeds of late are greater than 3at first.
20 ‘But aI have this against you, that you tolerate the woman bJezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they ccommit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
21 ‘aI gave her time to repent, and she bdoes not want to repent of her immorality.
22 ‘Behold, I will throw her 1on a bed of sickness, and those who acommit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of 2her deeds.
23 ‘And I will kill her children with 1pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who asearches the 2minds and hearts; and bI will give to each one of you according to your deeds.
24 ‘But I say to you, the rest who are in aThyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the bdeep things of Satan, as they call them—I cplace no other burden on you.
25 ‘Nevertheless awhat you have, hold fast buntil I come.
26 ‘aHe who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds buntil the end, cto him I will give authority over the 1nations;
27 and he shall 1arule them with a rod of iron, bas the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father;
28 and I will give him athe morning star.
29 ‘aHe who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
