1 G4245 The elder G1588 to the elect G2959 lady G2532 and G846 her G5043 children G3739 , whom G1473 I G25 [G5719] love G1722 in G225 the truth G2532 ; and G3756 not G1473 I G3441 only G235 , but G2532 also G3956 all G1097 [G5761] they that have known G225 the truth;
2 G1223 For G225 the truth's sake G3588 , which G3306 [G5723] dwelleth G1722 in G2254 us G2532 , and G2071 [G5704] shall be G3326 with G2257 us G1519 into G3588 the G165 age.
3 G5485 Grace G2071 [G5704] be G3326 with G5216 you G1656 , mercy G1515 , and peace G3844 , from G2316 God G3962 the Father G2532 , and G3844 from G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G5207 , the Son G3962 of the Father G1722 , in G225 truth G2532 and G26 love.
4 G5463 [G5644] I rejoiced G3029 greatly G3754 that G2147 [G5758] I found G1537 of G4675 thy G5043 children G4043 [G5723] walking G1722 in G225 truth G2531 , as G2983 [G5627] we have received G1785 a commandment G3844 from G3962 the Father.
5 G2532 And G3568 now G2065 [G5719] I beseech G4571 thee G2959 , lady G3756 , not G5613 as though G1125 G1125 [G5719] I wrote G2537 a new G1785 commandment G4671 to thee G235 , but G3739 that which G2192 [G5707] we had G575 from G746 the beginning G2443 , that G25 [G5725] we love G240 one another.
6 G2532 And G3778 this G2076 [G5748] is G26 love G2443 , that G4043 [G5725] we walk G2596 according to G846 his G1785 commandments G3778 . This G2076 [G5748] is G1785 the commandment G2443 , That G2531 , as G191 [G5656] ye have heard G575 from G746 the beginning G4043 [G5725] , ye should walk G1722 in G846 it.
7 G3754 For G4183 many G4108 deceivers G1525 [G5627] have entered G1519 into G2889 the world G3588 , who G3670 [G5723] confess G3361 not G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2064 [G5740] as coming G1722 in G4561 the flesh G3778 . This G2076 [G5748] is G4108 a deceiver G2532 and G500 an antichrist.
8 G991 [G5720] Look G1438 to yourselves G3363 0 , that G622 [G5661] we lose G3363 not G3739 those things which G2038 [G5662] we have wrought G235 , but G618 [G5632] that we receive G4134 a full G3408 reward.
9 G3956 Every G3588 one G3845 [G5723] walking contrary to G2532 , and G3306 [G5723] abiding G3361 not G1722 in G1322 the doctrine G5547 of Christ G2192 [G5719] , hath G3756 not G2316 God G3588 . The one G3306 [G5723] abiding G1722 in G1322 the doctrine G5547 of Christ G3778 , he G2192 [G5719] hath G2532 both G3588 the G3962 Father G2532 and G3588 the G5207 Son.
10 G1536 0 If G1536 G5100 any one G2064 [G5736] cometh G4314 to G5209 you G2532 , and G5342 [G5719] bringeth G3756 not G5026 this G1322 doctrine G2983 [G5720] , receive G846 him G3361 not G1519 into G3614 your house G2532 G3361 , neither G3004 [G5720] wish G846 him G5463 [G5721] greetings:
11 G1063 For G3004 [G5723] he that wisheth G846 him G5463 [G5721] greetings G2841 [G5719] is partaker G846 of his G4190 evil G2041 deeds.
12 G2192 [G5723] Having G4183 many things G1125 [G5721] to write G5213 to you G1014 [G5675] , I would G3756 not G1223 write with G5489 paper G2532 and G3188 ink G235 : but G1679 [G5719] I expect G2064 [G5629] to come G4314 to G5209 you G2532 , and G2980 [G5658] speak G4750 face G4314 to G4750 face G2443 , that G2257 our G5479 joy G5600 [G5753] may be G4137 [G5772] full.
