Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1"And to The Messenger who is in the assembly of Sardis write: Thus says he who has The Seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your works and the name that you have, and that you are alive and are dying." 2"Be vigilant and confirm what remains of those things that are ready to die, for I have not found you such that your works are perfect before God." 3"Remember how you have heard and received; take heed and return. But if you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you will not know which hour I shall come upon you." 4"But I have a few names in Sardis, those who have not defiled their garments, and they walk before me in white and they are worthy." 5"He who overcomes in this way is garbed with a white garment, and I shall not blot out his name from The Book of Life, and I shall confess his name before my Father and before his Angels." 6"Whoever has an ear, let him hear what The Spirit speaks to the assemblies."
7"And to The Messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write: Thus says The Holy One, The True One, he who has the key of David, The One who opens and there is none who shuts, and he shuts and there is none who opens:"*
8"I know your works, and behold, I have set an open door before you which no man can shut, because you have a little power, and you have kept my word and have not denied my name." 9"And behold, I grant some of the synagogue of Satan, of those who say about themselves that they are Jews and are not, but they are lying, behold, I shall make them come and worship before your feet and to know that I love you." 10"Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also shall keep you from the trial that is going to come over the entire inhabited world, to test the inhabitants of The Earth." 11"I come at once. Hold fast whatever you have, lest someone take your crown." 12"And I will make the overcomer a pillar in The Temple of God and he will not go outside again, and I shall write upon him The Name of my God, and the name of The City, The New Jerusalem, which descends from my God, and my new Name." 13"Let him who has an ear hear what The Spirit says to the assemblies."
14"And to The Messenger of the assembly of the Laidiqians* write: "Thus says The Eternal, The Trustworthy and True Witness, and The Source of The Creation of God:"
15"I know your works; you are neither cold nor hot; because it is necessary that you be either cold or hot," 16"And you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you from my mouth." 17"Because you said that you are rich, and, 'I have prospered, and I lack nothing', and you do not know that you are sick and wretched and poor* and naked," 18"I counsel you to buy gold from me, proved by fire, that you may prosper, and white garments to put on, lest the shame of your nakedness be revealed, and eye salve to apply that you may see." 19"I rebuke and discipline those whom I love. Be zealous therefore and return." 20"Behold, I stand at the door and I shall knock. If a man listens to my voice and will open the door, I also shall come in and I shall have supper with him, and he with me." 21"And I shall grant the overcomer to sit with me on my throne, just as I have overcome and I sit with my Father on his throne." 22"Whoever has an ear, let him hear what The Spirit says to the assemblies."
