“Be watchfull, and strengthen the things which remaine, that are ready to die: for I haue not found thy works perfect before God.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. And vnto the Angel of the Church in Sardis write, These things saith he that hath the seuen Spirits of God, & the seuen starres; I know thy workes, that thou hast a name that thou liuest, and art dead. 2. Be watchfull, and strengthen the things which remaine, that are ready to die: for I haue not found thy works perfect before God. 3. Remember therefore, how thou hast receiued and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thiefe, and thou shalt not know what houre I will come vpon thee. 4. Thou hast a few names euen in Sardis, which haue not defiled their garments, and they shall walke with me in white: for they are worthy. 5. Hee that ouercommeth, the same shalbe clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the booke of life, but I will confesse his name before my Father, and before his Angels.
