Revelation 3:15-17 The Passion Translation (TPT)

15 I know all that you do, and I know that you are neither frozen in apathy nor fervent with passion.[a] How I wish you were either one or the other! 16 But because you are neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm, I am about to spit you from my mouth.[b] 17 For you claim, “I’m rich and getting richer—I don’t need a thing.”[c] Yet you are clueless that you’re miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked!


  1. Revelation 3:15 Or “you are neither cold nor hot.”
  2. Revelation 3:16 This is not a complete rejection, for Jesus gives them a call to repent and return to a place of being passionate and zealous for God. The Aramaic uses an idiom that can mean “I am about to reprimand you (lit. “give you of my mouth”).”
  3. Revelation 3:17 Although Laodicea was known as a very prosperous city, a financial center of the region, Christ’s estimation of them was that they were spiritually poor. Only in Christ are we made rich (2 Cor. 8:9).
