[2 John 1]
1:1 The Elder, unto an elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not, I, alone, but all those also who understand the truth, --
1:2 For the sake of the truth that abideth in us, and, with us, shall be unto times age-abiding,
1:3 Favour, mercy, peace shall be with us, from God the Father, and from Jesus Christ the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
1:4 I rejoiced exceedingly, in that I had found, from among thy children, such as were walking in truth, even as, a commandment, we received from the Father.
1:5 And, now, I request thee, lady, not as writing, a new commandment, unto thee, but one which we were holding from the beginning -- That we should be loving one another.
1:6 And, this, is love, that we should be walking according to his commandments: This, is, the commandment, even as ye heard from the beginning, that, therein, ye should be walking.
1:7 Because, many deceivers, have gone out into the world, they who do not confess Jesus Christ coming in flesh: This, is the deceiver and the antichrist.
1:8 Be taking heed unto yourselves, lest ye lose what things we earned, -- but, a full reward, ye may duly receive.
1:9 Every one that taketh a lead, and abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not, God: he that abideth in the teaching, the same, hath, both the Father and the Son.
1:10 If anyone cometh unto you and, this teaching, doth not bring, be not receiving him home, and, Joy to thee! do not say;
1:11 For, he that biddeth him rejoice, hath fellowship with his wicked works.
1:12 Though I had many things, unto you, to write, I was not minded [to say them] with paper and ink; but I hope to come unto you, and, mouth to mouth, to talk, -- that your joy may be made full.
1:13 The children of thy chosen sister salute thee.
