The greeting and description of Jesus
2:18 And unto the
[messenger or pastor] of the church in Thyatira write;
 These things saith the Son of God, who hath
[a.] his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and
[b.] his feet [are] like fine brass;
2:19 I know thy
 works, and
 charity, and
 service, and
 faith, and thy
 patience, and thy
 works; and
[a.] the last [to be] more than the first.
2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because
 thou sufferest that woman Jezebel,
[a.] which calleth herself a prophetess,
[11.] to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and
[12.] to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and
 she repented not.
 I will cast
[a.] her into a bed [a sickbed], and
[b.] [I will cast] them that commit adultery with her
[11.] into great tribulation [no definite article for tribulation],
[aa.] except they repent of their deeds.
 I will kill
[a.] her children with death; and
[11.] all the churches shall know that
[aa.] I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and
 I will give
[a.] unto every one of you
[11.] according to your works.
 unto you I say, and
 unto the rest in Thyatira,
[a.] as many as have not this doctrine, and
[b.] which have not known the depths of Satan,
[11.] as they speak;
 I will put upon you none other burden.
2:25 But that which ye have [already]
 hold fast till I come.
2:26 And he that
 overcometh, and
 keepeth my works unto the end,
[a.] to him will I give power over the nations:
[b.] he shall rule them with a rod of iron [these saints shall rule the nations with a rod of iron (c/p. Ps. 149:5-9; Rev. 19:15)`];
[11.] as the vessels of a potter
[aa.] shall they [the nations] be broken to shivers:
[111.] even as I received of my Father.
2:28 And I will give him [these who overcome]
 the morning star [Rev. 22:16].
2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear
 what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
