And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things said he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God.
Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you.
You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
He that overcomes, 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.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
