"And to the 1 angel of the church 2 of the Laodiceans write,
j 'These things says the Amen, k the Faithful and True Witness, l the Beginning of the creation of God:
15 m "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither 3 cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 "Because you say, n 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing' - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked - 18 "I counsel you o to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and p white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 q "As many as I love, I rebuke and r chasten. 4 Therefore be 5 zealous and repent. 20 "Behold, s I stand at the door and knock. t If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, u I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 "To him who overcomes v I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 w "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
