CEVUS06Contemporary English Version
14 # Pr 8.22. This is what you must write to the angel of the church in Laodicea:
I am the one called Amen!#3.14 Amen: Meaning “Trustworthy.” I am the faithful and true witness and the source#3.14 source: Or “beginning.” of God's creation. Listen to what I say.
15I know everything you have done, and you are not cold or hot. I wish you were either one or the other. 16But since you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17You claim to be rich and successful and to have everything you need. But you don't know how bad off you really are. You are pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
18Buy your gold from me. It has been refined in a fire, and it will make you rich. Buy white clothes from me. Wear them and you can cover up your shameful nakedness. Buy medicine for your eyes, so you will be able to see.
