Revelation 2:18-3:6 English Standard Version (ESV)
To the Church in Thyatira
18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.
19 “‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first. 20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. 22 Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works, 23 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. 24 But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden. 25 Only hold fast what you have until I come. 26 The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, 27 and he will rule[a] them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
To the Church in Sardis
3 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: ‘The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.
“‘I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you. 4 Yet you have still a few names in Sardis, people who have not soiled their garments, and they will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. 5 The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. 6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
Amos 4-6 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 “Hear this word, you cows of Bashan,
4 “Come to Bethel, and transgress;
Israel Has Not Returned to the Lord
6 “I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities,
7 “I also withheld the rain from you
9 “I struck you with blight and mildew;
10 “I sent among you a pestilence after the manner of Egypt;
11 “I overthrew some of you,
12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel;
13 For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind,
Seek the Lord and Live
5 Hear this word that I take up over you in lamentation, O house of Israel:
2 “Fallen, no more to rise,
3 For thus says the Lord God:
“The city that went out a thousand
4 For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel:
“Seek me and live;
6 Seek the Lord and live,
8 He who made the Pleiades and Orion,
10 They hate him who reproves in the gate,
14 Seek good, and not evil,
16 Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of hosts, the Lord:
“In all the squares there shall be wailing,
Let Justice Roll Down
18 Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord!
21 “I hate, I despise your feasts,
25 “Did you bring to me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? 26 You shall take up Sikkuth your king, and Kiyyun your star-god—your images that you made for yourselves, 27 and I will send you into exile beyond Damascus,” says the Lord, whose name is the God of hosts.
Woe to Those at Ease in Zion
6 “Woe to those who are at ease in Zion,
4 “Woe to those who lie on beds of ivory
8 The Lord God has sworn by himself, declares the Lord, the God of hosts:
“I abhor the pride of Jacob
9 And if ten men remain in one house, they shall die. 10 And when one's relative, the one who anoints him for burial, shall take him up to bring the bones out of the house, and shall say to him who is in the innermost parts of the house, “Is there still anyone with you?” he shall say, “No”; and he shall say, “Silence! We must not mention the name of the Lord.”
11 For behold, the Lord commands,
Psalm 130 English Standard Version (ESV)
My Soul Waits for the Lord
A Song of Ascents.
130 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord!
Proverbs 29:21-22 English Standard Version (ESV)
21 Whoever pampers his servant from childhood
