Revelation 3 Text (WEB)
  1. "And to the angel of the assembly in Sardis write: "He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars says these things: "I know your works, that you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
  2. Wake up, and keep the things that remain, which you were about to throw away, for I have found no works of yours perfected before my God.
  3. Remember therefore how you have received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If therefore you won't watch, I will come as a thief, and you won't know what hour I will come upon you.
  4. Nevertheless you have a few names in Sardis that did not defile their garments. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy.
  5. He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and 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 assemblies.
  7. "To the angel of the assembly in Philadelphia write: "He who is holy, he who is true, he who has the key of David, he who opens and no one can shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says these things:
  8. "I know your works (behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one can shut), that you have a little power, and kept my word, and didn't deny my name.
  9. Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of those who say they are Jews, and they are not, but lie. Behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
  10. Because you kept my command to endure, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, which is to come on the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
  11. I am coming quickly! Hold firmly that which you have, so that no one takes your crown.
  12. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will go out from there no more. I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God, and my own new name.
  13. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.
  14. "To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write: "The Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Head of God's creation, says these things:
  15. "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot.
  16. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth.
  17. Because you say, 'I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;' and don't know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked;
  18. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.
  19. As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous therefore, and repent.
  20. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me.
  21. He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne.
  22. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies."
Revelation 3 Text (Hebrew)

ואל מלאך קהל סרדיס כתב כה אמר אשר לו שבע רוחות האלהים ושבעת הכוכבים ידעתי את מעשיך כי לך שם כאלו אתה חי והנך מת׃

שקד וחזק את השארית הקרובה למות כי לא מצאתי מעשיך שלמים לפני האלהים׃

זכור את אשר קבלת ושמעת ושמרה זאת ושובה ואם לא תשקד הנני בא עליך כגנב ולא תדע באי זו שעה אבא עליך׃

יש לך גם בסרדיס שמות מעטים אשר לא גאלו את מלבושיהם ויתהלכו אתי לבשי לבנים כי ראוים הם לזאת׃

המנצח ילבש בגדים לבנים ולא אמחה את שמו מספר החיים ואודה שמו לפני אבי ולפני מלאכיו׃

מי אשר אזן לו ישמע את אשר הרוח אמר לקהלות׃

ואל מלאך קהל פילדלפיא כתב כה אמר הקדוש האמתי אשר בידו מפתח דוד הפתח ואין סגר והסגר ואין פתח׃

ידעתי את מעשיך הנה נתתי לפניך פתח נפתח אשר לא יוכל איש לסגרו כי גבורת מעט לך ותשמר את דברי ולא כחשת בשמי׃

הנני נתן אנשים מכנסית השטן האמרים יהודים אנחנו ואינם כי כזבים המה הנני עשה אשר יבאו להשתחות לפני רגליך וידעו כי אני אהבתיך׃

יען שמרת דבר סבלנותי אשמרך גם אנכי משעת הנסיון העתידה לבוא על תבל כלה לנסות את ישבי הארץ׃

הנני בא מהרה החזק באשר לך למען לא יקח איש את נזרך׃

המנצח אתננו לעמוד בהיכל אלהי ולא יצא עוד החוצה וכתבתי עליו את שם אלהי ואת שם עיר אלהי ירושלים החדשה הירדת משמים מעם אלהי ואת שמי החדש׃

מי אשר אזן לו ישמע את אשר הרוח אמר לקהלות׃

ואל מלאך קהל לודקיא כתב כה אמר האמן העד הנאמן והאמתי ראשית בריאת האלהים׃

ידעתי את מעשיך כי לא קר ולא חם אתה מי יתן והיית קר או חם׃

כי עתה פושר אתה ולא קר ולא חם על כן אקיאך מפי׃

כי אמרת אך עשרתי מצאתי און לי ולא חסרתי כל ולא ידעת כי אמלל אתה ודוי ועני ועור וערם׃

אני איעצך לפנות מאתי זהב צרוף באש למען תעשיר ובגדים לבנים למען תתכסה בהם ולא תראה בשת ערותות ולמשח עיניך קלורית למען תראה׃

]12-02[ אני את כל אשר אהב אוכיחם ואיסרם לכן תשקד ותשוב, הנני עמד לפתח ודפק והיה כי ישמע איש לקולי ופתח הפתח אבוא אליו לסעוד עמו והוא עמדי׃

]12-02[׃

המנצח אתננו לשבת אתי על כסאי כאשר נצחתי גם אנכי ואשב את אבי על כסאו׃

מי אשר אזן לו ישמע את אשר הרוח אמר לקהלות׃

  1. και τω αγγελω της εν σαρδεσιν εκκλησιας γραψον ταδε λεγει ο εχων τα επτα πνευματα του θεου και τους επτα αστερας οιδα σου τα εργα οτι ονομα εχεις οτι ζης και νεκρος ει
  2. γινου γρηγορων και στηρισον τα λοιπα α εμελλον αποθανειν ου γαρ ευρηκα σου εργα πεπληρωμενα ενωπιον του θεου μου
  3. μνημονευε ουν πως ειληφας και ηκουσας και τηρει και μετανοησον εαν ουν μη γρηγορησης ηξω ως κλεπτης και ου μη γνως ποιαν ωραν ηξω επι σε
  4. αλλα εχεις ολιγα ονοματα εν σαρδεσιν α ουκ εμολυναν τα ιματια αυτων και περιπατησουσιν μετ εμου εν λευκοις οτι αξιοι εισιν
  5. ο νικων ουτως περιβαλειται εν ιματιοις λευκοις και ου μη εξαλειψω το ονομα αυτου εκ της βιβλου της ζωης και ομολογησω το ονομα αυτου ενωπιον του πατρος μου και ενωπιον των αγγελων αυτου
  6. ο εχων ους ακουσατω τι το πνευμα λεγει ταις εκκλησιαις
  7. και τω αγγελω της εν φιλαδελφεια εκκλησιας γραψον ταδε λεγει ο αγιος ο αληθινος ο εχων την κλειν δαυιδ ο ανοιγων και ουδεις κλεισει και κλειων και ουδεις ανοιγει
  8. οιδα σου τα εργα ιδου δεδωκα ενωπιον σου θυραν ηνεωγμενην ην ουδεις δυναται κλεισαι αυτην οτι μικραν εχεις δυναμιν και ετηρησας μου τον λογον και ουκ ηρνησω το ονομα μου
  9. ιδου διδω εκ της συναγωγης του σατανα των λεγοντων εαυτους ιουδαιους ειναι και ουκ εισιν αλλα ψευδονται ιδου ποιησω αυτους ινα ηξουσιν και προσκυνησουσιν ενωπιον των ποδων σου και γνωσιν οτι εγω ηγαπησα σε
  10. οτι ετηρησας τον λογον της υπομονης μου καγω σε τηρησω εκ της ωρας του πειρασμου της μελλουσης ερχεσθαι επι της οικουμενης ολης πειρασαι τους κατοικουντας επι της γης
  11. ερχομαι ταχυ κρατει ο εχεις ινα μηδεις λαβη τον στεφανον σου
  12. ο νικων ποιησω αυτον στυλον εν τω ναω του θεου μου και εξω ου μη εξελθη ετι και γραψω επ αυτον το ονομα του θεου μου και το ονομα της πολεως του θεου μου της καινης ιερουσαλημ η καταβαινουσα εκ του ουρανου απο του θεου μου και το ονομα μου το καινον
  13. ο εχων ους ακουσατω τι το πνευμα λεγει ταις εκκλησιαις
  14. και τω αγγελω της εν λαοδικεια εκκλησιας γραψον ταδε λεγει ο αμην ο μαρτυς ο πιστος και αληθινος η αρχη της κτισεως του θεου
  15. οιδα σου τα εργα οτι ουτε ψυχρος ει ουτε ζεστος οφελον ψυχρος ης η ζεστος
  16. ουτως οτι χλιαρος ει και ουτε ζεστος ουτε ψυχρος μελλω σε εμεσαι εκ του στοματος μου
  17. οτι λεγεις οτι πλουσιος ειμι και πεπλουτηκα και ουδεν χρειαν εχω και ουκ οιδας οτι συ ει ο ταλαιπωρος και ελεεινος και πτωχος και τυφλος και γυμνος
  18. συμβουλευω σοι αγορασαι παρ εμου χρυσιον πεπυρωμενον εκ πυρος ινα πλουτησης και ιματια λευκα ινα περιβαλη και μη φανερωθη η αισχυνη της γυμνοτητος σου και εγχρισαι τους οφθαλμους σου ινα βλεπης
  19. εγω οσους εαν φιλω ελεγχω και παιδευω ζηλευε ουν και μετανοησον
  20. ιδου εστηκα επι την θυραν και κρουω εαν τις ακουση της φωνης μου και ανοιξη την θυραν εισελευσομαι προς αυτον και δειπνησω μετ αυτου και αυτος μετ εμου
  21. ο νικων δωσω αυτω καθισαι μετ εμου εν τω θρονω μου ως καγω ενικησα και εκαθισα μετα του πατρος μου εν τω θρονω αυτου
  22. ο εχων ους ακουσατω τι το πνευμα λεγει ταις εκκλησιαις
Revelation 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Et angelo ecclesiæ Sardis scribe : Hæc dicit qui habet septem spiritus Dei, et septem stellas : Scio opera tua, quia nomen habes quod vivas, et mortuus es.
  2. Esto vigilans, et confirma cetera, quæ moritura erant. Non enim invenio opera tua plena coram Deo meo.
  3. In mente ergo habe qualiter acceperis, et audieris, et serva, et pœnitentiam age. Si ergo non vigilaveris, veniam ad te tamquam fur et nescies qua hora veniam ad te.
  4. Sed habes pauca nomina in Sardis qui non inquinaverunt vestimenta sua : et ambulabunt mecum in albis, quia digni sunt.
  5. Qui vicerit, sic vestietur vestimentis albis, et non delebo nomen ejus de libro vitæ, et confitebor nomen ejus coram Patre meo, et coram angelis ejus.
  6. Qui habet aurem, audiat quid Spiritus dicat ecclesiis.
  7. Et angelo Philadelphiæ ecclesiæ scribe : Hæc dicit Sanctus et Verus, qui habet clavem David : qui aperit, et nemo claudit : claudit, et nemo aperit :
  8. Scio opera tua. Ecce dedi coram te ostium apertum, quod nemo potest claudere : quia modicam habes virtutem, et servasti verbum meum, et non negasti nomen meum.
  9. Ecce dabo de synagoga Satanæ, qui dicunt se Judæos esse, et non sunt, sed mentiuntur : ecce faciam illos ut veniant, et adorent ante pedes tuos : et scient quia ego dilexi te,
  10. quoniam servasti verbum patientiæ meæ, et ego servabo te ab hora tentationis, quæ ventura est in orbem universum tentare habitantes in terra.
  11. Ecce venio cito : tene quod habes, ut nemo accipiat coronam tuam.
  12. Qui vicerit, faciam illum columnam in templo Dei mei, et foras non egredietur amplius : et scribam super eum nomen Dei mei, et nomen civitatis Dei mei novæ Jerusalem, quæ descendit de cælo a Deo meo, et nomen meum novum.
  13. Qui habet aurem, audiat quid Spiritus dicat ecclesiis.
  14. Et angelo Laodiciæ ecclesiæ scribe : Hæc dicit : Amen, testis fidelis et verus, qui est principium creaturæ Dei.
  15. Scio opera tua : quia neque frigidus es, neque calidus : utinam frigidus esses, aut calidus :
  16. sed quia tepidus es, et nec frigidus, nec calidus, incipiam te evomere ex ore meo :
  17. quia dicis : Quod dives sum, et locupletatus, et nullius egeo : et nescis quia tu es miser, et miserabilis, et pauper, et cæcus, et nudus.
  18. Suadeo tibi emere a me aurum ignitum probatum, ut locuples fias, et vestimentis albis induaris, et non appareat confusio nuditatis tuæ, et collyrio inunge oculos tuos ut videas.
  19. Ego quos amo, arguo, et castigo. Æmulare ergo, et pœnitentiam age.
  20. Ecce sto ad ostium, et pulso : si quis audierit vocem meam, et aperuerit mihi januam, intrabo ad illum, et cœnabo cum illo, et ipse mecum.
  21. Qui vicerit, dabo ei sedere mecum in throno meo : sicut et ego vici, et sedi cum Patre meo in throno ejus.
  22. Qui habet aurem, audiat quid Spiritus dicat ecclesiis.
Revelation 3 Text (KJV)
  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 white 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.
  7. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
  8. I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
  9. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
  10. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
  11. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
  12. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
  13. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
  14. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
  15. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
  16. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
  17. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
  18. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
  19. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
  20. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
  21. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
  22. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Commentary

The third chapter of the Book of Revelation contains 3 mini-letters to the churches at Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea. These 3 mini-letters were part of a total of seven mini-letters written by the apostle John after he received a number of visions from Jesus.

Letter to the church at Sardis

Letter to the church at Philadelphia

Letter to the church at Laodicea

The letter to the church at Laodicea is a call for the church to stand out from the rest of the town and be useful. Jesus spoke into the context of the Laodiceans who were known for the poor quality luke-warm water supply. This was in contrast to the cold refreshing water of near-by Colosse and the comforting warm water of near-by Hierapolis. Rather than being luke-warm and useless he called for them to be hot or cold, both of which were useful and good. Likewise, although materially wealthy and known for their healing eye ointment and textile industry, Jesus rebuked the church as actually being poor, blind and naked. Yet the letter ends with the gentle invitation to open the door to Jesus.
