And to the angel of the church in Pergamum, write:

“This is what the one who has the sharp two-edged sword says,

‘I know where you dwell where the throne of Satan is and you hold my name and do not deny my faith and, in the days of Antipas my faithful witness who was killed beside you, where Satan dwells.

‘But I have a few things against you that you have there some who are holding fast to the teaching of Balaam who was teaching Balak to throw scandal before the sons of Israel to eat idol meat and to engage in fornication.

‘Thus, likewise, you have and you are holding fast to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

‘Therefore, repent! Otherwise, I am coming to you quickly and I will wage war with them with my double-edged sword.’

The one who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious I will give to him some of the hidden manna and I will give to him a white stone, and on that stone a new name will be written that no one will know except the one who receives it.”
