2 John 1

The elder unto the {a} elect {b} lady and her children, {1} whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

(a) This is not a proper name, but is to be taken as it sounds that is to say, the worthy and noble lady. (b) Excellent and honourable woman. (1) The bond of Christian union is the true and constant profession of the truth.
