3 John

  1 G4245 The elder G27 unto the wellbeloved G1050 Gaius G3739 , whom G1473 I G25 love [G5719]   G1722 in G225 the truth.
  2 G27 Beloved G2172 , I wish [G5736]   G4012 above G3956 all things G4571 that thou G2137 mayest prosper [G5745]   G2532 and G5198 be in health [G5721]   G2531 , even as G4675 thy G5590 soul G2137 prospereth [G5743]  .
  3 G1063 For G5463 I rejoiced [G5644]   G3029 greatly G80 , when the brethren G2064 came [G5740]   G2532 and G3140 testified [G5723]   G225 of the truth G4675 that is in thee G2531 , even as G4771 thou G4043 walkest [G5719]   G1722 in G225 the truth.
  4 G2192 I have [G5719]   G3756 no G3186 greater G5130   G5479 joy G2443 than to G191 hear [G5725]   G1699 that my G5043 children G4043 walk [G5723]   G1722 in G225 truth.
  5 G27 Beloved G4160 , thou doest [G5719]   G4103 faithfully G3739 whatsoever G1437   G2038 thou doest [G5667]   G1519 to G80 the brethren G2532 , and G1519 to G3581 strangers;
  6 G3739 Which G3140 have borne witness [G5656]   G4675 of thy G26 charity G1799 before G1577 the church G3739 : whom G4311 if thou bring forward on their journey [G5660]   G516 after G2316 a godly G516 sort G4160 , thou shalt do [G5692]   G2573 well:
  7 G1063 Because that G5228 for G846 his G3686 name's G5228 sake G1831 they went forth [G5627]   G2983 , taking [G5723]   G3367 nothing G575 of G1484 the Gentiles.
  8 G2249 We G3767 therefore G3784 ought [G5719]   G618 to receive [G5721]   G5108 such G2443 , that G1096 we might be [G5741]   G4904 fellowhelpers G225 to the truth.
  9 G1125 I wrote [G5656]   G1577 unto the church G235 : but G1361 Diotrephes G3588 , who G5383 loveth to have the preeminence [G5723]   G846 among them G1926 , receiveth [G5736]   G2248 us G3756 not.
  10 G1223 Wherefore G5124   G1437 , if G2064 I come [G5632]   G5279 , I will remember [G5692]   G846 his G2041 deeds G3739 which G4160 he doeth [G5719]   G5396 , prating against [G5723]   G2248 us G4190 with malicious G3056 words G2532 : and G3361 not G714 content [G5746]   G1909 therewith G5125   G3777 , neither G1926 doth G846 he himself G1926 receive [G5736]   G80 the brethren G2532 , and G2967 forbiddeth [G5719]   G1014 them that would [G5740]   G2532 , and G1544 casteth [G5719]   G1537 them out of G1577 the church.
  11 G27 Beloved G3401 , follow [G5737]   G3361 not G2556 that which is evil G235 , but G18 that which is good G15 . He that doeth good [G5723]   G2076 is [G5748]   G1537 of G2316 God G1161 : but G2554 he that doeth evil [G5723]   G3708 hath G3756 not G3708 seen [G5758]   G2316 God.
  12 G1216 Demetrius G3140 hath good report [G5769]   G5259 of G3956 all G2532 men, and G5259 of G225 the truth G846 itself G1161 : yea G2532 , and G2249 we G3140 also bear record [G5719]   G2532 ; and G1492 ye know [G5758]   G3754 that G2257 our G3141 record G2076 is [G5748]   G227 true.
  13 G2192 I had [G5707]   G4183 many things G1125 to write [G5721]   G235 , but G2309 I will [G5719]   G3756 not G1223 with G3188 ink G2532 and G2563 pen G1125 write [G5658]   G4671 unto thee:
  14 G1161 But G1679 I trust [G5719]   G1492 I shall G2112 shortly G1492 see [G5629]   G4571 thee G2532 , and G2980 we shall speak [G5692]   G4750 face G4314 to G4750 face G1515 . Peace G4671 be to thee G5384 . Our friends G782 salute [G5736]   G4571 thee G782 . Greet [G5737]   G5384 the friends G2596 by G3686 name.
