(1) And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. (2) Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die; for I have not found thy works perfect before God. (3) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (4) Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy. (5) He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in whtie raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels. (6) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
