1“Write to the angel # Or messenger here and elsewhere of the church in Ephesus: “The One who holds the seven stars in His right hand and who walks among the seven gold lampstands # Rv 1:16,20 says: # Ac 21:11 2I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, # Rv 2:19; 3:1,8,15 and that you cannot tolerate evil. You have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, # 2Co 11:13 and you have found them to be liars. # 1Jn 4:1 3You also possess endurance and have tolerated many things because of My name # Mt 24:9 and have not grown weary. 4But I have this against you: You have abandoned the love you had at first. # Jr 2:2 5Remember then how far you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. # Heb 10:32 Otherwise, I will come to you # Other mss add quickly and remove your lampstand from its place — unless you repent.
