2:2 I know thy works, and thy travail, and thy patience, and that thou mayest not sustain evil men; and thou hast assayed them that say that they be apostles, and be not, and thou hast found them liars; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not forbear them which are evil: and examinedst them which say they are Apostles, and are not: and hast found them liars. I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not forbear them which are evil, and hast examined them which say they are Apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars. I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil, and thou hast tried them which say they are Apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
2:3 and thou hast patience, and thou hast sustained for my name, and failedst not. and hast suffered, and hast patience: and for my name’s sake hast laboured and hast not fainted.

2:5 Therefore be thou mindful from whence thou hast fallen, and do penance, and do the first works; if not, I shall come soon to thee, and shall move thy candlestick of his place, but thou do penance.

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works: or else I will come against thee shortly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou amend.
