Message to the Church in Pergamum

12And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things said he which has the sharp sword with two edges; 13I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells. 14But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication. 15So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. 16Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it.
