King James Bible

King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


The church at Ephesus (Rev. 2:6) is commended for hating the "deeds of the Nicolaitanes, and the church of Pergamos is" "blamed for having them who hold their "doctrines" (15). They" "were seemingly a class of professing Christians, who sought to" "introduce into the church a false freedom or licentiousness," "thus abusing Paul's doctrine of grace (comp. 2 Pet. 2:15, 16," "19), and were probably identical with those who held the" "doctrine of Baalam (q.v.), Rev. 2:14."
