But I have few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immortality.
So also you have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolai tans. Therefore repent. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.
I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance and that your latter works exceed the first.
But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching my servants to practice sexual immortality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.
I gave her time to repent, but if she refuses to repent of her sexual immortality. Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into a great tribulation, unless they repent of her works.
And I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works.
Revelation 2: 14 - 23
