14 “To the angel of the church in Laodiceap write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness,q the ruler of God’s creation.r 15 I know your deeds,s that you are neither cold nor hot.t I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’u But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.v 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire,w so you can become rich; and white clothesx to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness;y and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline.z So be earnest and repent.a 20 Here I am! I stand at the doorb and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,c I will come ind and eat with that person, and they with me.
21 To the one who is victorious,e I will give the right to sit with me on my throne,f just as I was victoriousg and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hearh what the Spirit says to the churches.”
