2 G27 Beloved, G2172 I wish G4012 above G3956 all G2137 things that you may prosper G5198 and be in health, G2531 even G5590 as your soul G2137 prospers.
3 G5463 For I rejoiced G3029 greatly, G80 when the brothers G2064 came G3140 and testified G225 of the truth G2531 that is in you, even G4043 as you walk G225 in the truth.
4 G2192 I have G3756 no G3186 greater G5479 joy G191 than to hear G5043 that my children G4043 walk G225 in truth.
5 G27 Beloved, G4160 you do G4103 faithfully G3739 whatever G1437 G4160 you do G80 to the brothers, G3581 and to strangers;
6 G3739 Which G2192 have G3140 borne witness G26 of your charity G1799 before G1577 the church: G3739 whom G4311 if you bring G4311 forward G516 on their journey after G516 a godly G2316 G516 sort, G4160 you shall do G2573 well:
7 G1063 Because G3686 that for his name’s G1831 sake they went G1831 forth, G2983 taking G3367 nothing G1484 of the Gentiles.
8 G3767 We therefore G3784 ought G618 to receive G5108 such, G4904 that we might be fellow helpers G225 to the truth.
9 G1125 I wrote G1577 to the church: G1361 but Diotrephes, G3588 who G5383 loves G5383 to have the preeminence G1722 among G1926 them, receives us not.
10 G1223 Why, G5124 G1437 if G2064 I come, G5279 I will remember G2041 his deeds G4160 which he does, G5396 prating G5396 against G4190 us with malicious G3056 words: G714 and not content G1909 therewith, G5125 G3777 neither G846 does he himself G1926 receive G80 the brothers, G2967 and forbids G1014 them that would, G1544 and casts G1577 them out of the church.
11 G27 Beloved, G3401 follow G2556 not that which is evil, G18 but that which is good. G15 He that does G15 good G2316 is of God: G2554 but he that does G2554 evil G3708 has not seen G2316 God.
12 G1216 Demetrius G3140 has good report G3956 of all G225 men, and of the truth G846 itself: G1161 yes, G2532 and we also G3140 bear record; G1492 and you know G3141 that our record G227 is true.
13 G2192 I had G4183 many G1125 things to write, G2309 but I will G3188 not with ink G2563 and pen G1125 write to you:
