1 G4245 The elder G1050 unto Gaius G27 the beloved, G3739 whom G1473 I G25 love G1722 in G225 truth.
2 G27 Beloved, G2172 I pray G2137 that G4012 in G3956 all things G4571 thou G2137 mayest prosper G2532 and G5198 be in health, G2531 even as G4675 thy G5590 soul G2137 prospereth.
3 G1063 For G5463 I rejoiced G3029 greatly, G80 when brethren G2064 came G2532 and G3140 bare witness unto G4675 thy G225 truth, G2531 even as G4771 thou G4043 walkest G1722 in G225 truth.
4 G3186 Greater G5479 joy G2192 have G3756 I none G2443 than G191 this, to hear G1699 of my G5043 children G4043 walking G1722 in G225 the truth.
5 G27 Beloved, G4160 thou doest G4103 a faithful G3739 work in whatsoever G2038 thou doest G1519 toward G80 them that are brethren G2532 and G3581 strangers G1519 withal;
6 G3739 who G3140 bare witness G4675 to thy G26 love G1799 before G1577 the church: G3739 whom G4160 thou wilt do G2573 well G4311 to set forward on their journey G516 worthily G2316 of God:
7 G1063 because that G5228 for G5228 the sake G846 of the G3686 Name G1831 they went forth, G2983 taking G3367 nothing G575 of G1484 the Gentiles.
8 G2249 We G3767 therefore G3784 ought G618 to welcome G5108 such, G2443 that G1096 we may be G4904 fellow-workers G225 for the truth.
9 G1125 I wrote somewhat unto G1577 the church: G235 but G1361 Diotrephes, G5383 who loveth to have the preeminence G846 among them, G1926 receiveth G2248 us G3756 not.
10 G5124 Therefore, G1437 if G2064 I come, G5279 I will bring to remembrance G846 his G2041 works G3739 which G4160 he doeth, G5396 prating against G2248 us G3056 with G4190 wicked G3056 words: G2532 and G3361 not G714 content G5125 therewith, G3777 neither G1926 doth G846 he himself G1926 receive G80 the brethren, G2532 and G1014 them that would G2967 he forbiddeth G2532 and G1544 casteth G1537 them out of G1577 the church.
11 G27 Beloved, G3401 imitate G3361 not G3588 that which is G2556 evil, G235 but G3588 that which is G18 good. G3588 He G15 that doeth good G2076 is G1537 of G2316 God: G1161 G3588 he G2554 that doeth evil G3708 hath G3756 not G3708 seen G2316 God.
12 G1216 Demetrius G3140 hath the witness G5259 of G3956 all G2532 men, and G5259 of G225 the truth G846 itself: G1161 yea, G2532 G2249 we G3140 also bear witness: G2532 and G1492 thou knowest G3754 that G2257 our G3141 witness G2076 is G227 true.
13 G2192 I had G4183 many things G1125 to write G235 unto thee, but G2309 I am G3756 unwilling G1125 to write G4671 them to thee G1223 with G3188 ink G2532 and G2563 pen:
