165. Verse 4. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis, signifies that among them there are also some who have life in their worship. By "a few names" are signified some who are such, as now follows, for "name" signifies the quality of anyone; the reason is that everyone in the spiritual world is named according to his quality (n. 81). The quality of those who are now treated of, is, that they have life in their worship.
