3 John


Walk in Truth

1The elder, to Gaius the beloved, whom I love in truth. 2Beloved, concerning all things I make a vow for you to prosper and to be in health, as [3prospers 1your 2soul]. 3For I rejoiced exceedingly [2coming 1of the brethren], and bearing witness of you in the truth, as you [2in 3truth 1walk]. 4[3greater 5than this 2no 1I have 4joy], that I should hear of my children [2in 3truth 1walking]. 5Beloved, [2trusting 1do] what ever you should work among the brethren, and among the strangers, 6(the ones witnessing [3of yours 1to the 2love] before the assembly), whom [2well 1you shall do] having sent forward worthily of God. 7For on account of his name they went forth [2nothing 1taking] from the nations. 8We then ought to accept such, that [2fellow-workers 1we should become] in the truth. 9I wrote to the assembly, but the one enjoying being first of them -- Diotrephes, does not welcome us. 10On account of this, if I come, I will remind him the works which he does -- [2words 1evil] prating against us. And not being sufficient with these, neither he himself welcomes the brethren, and the ones wanting to he restrains, and [2of 3the 4assembly 1casts them out]. 11Beloved, do not imitate evil, but the good! The one doing good [2of 3God 1is]; but the one doing evil has not seen God. 12To Demetrius witness is borne by all, and by [3itself 1the 2truth]; and we also bear witness, and you know that our witness is true. 13Many things I have to write, but I do not want by ink and reed to write to you. 14But I hope immediately to see you, and mouth to mouth we shall speak. Peace to you. [3greet 4you 1The 2friends]. Greet the friends by name!
