Revelation 2:12-14

To the Church in Pergamum

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword.

13 I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is. Yet you hold fast my name, and you did not deny my faith [1] even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.


[1] Or your faith in me
