Translating Revelation’s Letters: Ephesus (Rev 2:1-7)

To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: this is what the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand, the one who walks among the 7 golden lampstands says:

“I know your works and toil
and your patience
and that you are not able to bear evildoers
and you put the ones calling themselves apostles to the test
and they are not
and you found them to be liars,
and you have endurance
and you are bearing because of my name
and not becoming tired.

But I have against you that you have abandoned your first love.

Therefore, remember where you have fallen from
and repent and do the works you first did;
but if not, I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand from its place,
unless you repent.

But you have this, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Let the one who has an ear hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.

To the one who is victorious I will give to him to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
