"And to the angel of the church in
Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp two-edged
"I know where you are living, where Satans throne is. Yet you are
holding fast to my name, and you did not deny your faith in me even in the
days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you,
where Satan lives. But I have a few things against you: you have some
there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a
stumbling block before the people of Israel, so that they would eat food
sacrificed to idols and practice fornication. So you also have some who
hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Repent then. If not, I will come
to you soon and make war against them with the sword of my mouth. Let
anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
To everyone who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will
give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no
one knows except the one who receives it.
