Bible: Rev 2:12-17

To the Church in Pergamum

2:12To 1  the angel of the church in Pergamum write the following: 2 

This is the solemn pronouncement of 3  the one who has the sharp double-edged sword: 4  2:13 I know 5  where you live – where Satan’s throne is. Yet 6  you continue to cling 7  to my name and you have not denied your 8  faith in me, 9  even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, 10  who was killed in your city 11  where Satan lives. 2:14 But I have a few things against you: You have some people there who follow the teaching of Balaam, 12  who instructed Balak to put a stumbling block 13  before the people 14  of Israel so they would eat food sacrificed to idols and commit sexual immorality. 15  2:15 In the same way, there are also some among you who follow the teaching of the Nicolaitans. 16  2:16 Therefore, 17  repent! If not, I will come against you quickly and make war against those people 18  with the sword of my mouth. 2:17 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, 19  I will give him some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white 20  stone, 21  and on that stone will be written a new name that no one can understand 22  except the one who receives it.’
