The greeting and description of Jesus
Rev. 2:1 Unto the
or pastor] of the church of Ephesus write;
 These things saith he
[a.] that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand,
[b.] who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2:2 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,
[a.] and are not,
[b.] and hast found them liars:
 hast borne, and
 hast patience, and
 for my name's sake hast laboured, and
 hast not fainted.
2:4 Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because
 thou hast left thy first love.
2:5  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and
 repent, and
 do the first works; or else
[a.] I will come unto thee quickly, and
[b.] [I]will remove thy candlestick out of his place [your light will no longer shine unto the world],
[11.] except thou repent.
2:6 But this thou hast,
 that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes,
[a.] which I also hate.
2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear
 what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
[a.] To him that overcometh
[11.] will I give to eat of the tree of life,
[aa.] which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
