3 John

  1 G3588 The G4245 elder, G* to Gaius G3588 the G27 beloved, G3739 whom G1473 I G25 love G1722 in G225 truth.
  2 G27 Beloved, G4012 concerning G3956 all things G2172 I make a vow G1473 for you G2137 to prosper G2532 and G5198 to be in health, G2531 as G2137 [3prospers G1473 1your G3588   G5590 2soul].
  3 G5463 For I rejoiced G1063   G3029 exceedingly G2064 [2coming G80 1of the brethren], G2532 and G3140 bearing witness G1473 of you G3588 in the G225 truth, G2531 as G1473 you G1722 [2in G225 3truth G4043 1walk].
  4 G3173 [3greater G3778 5 than this G3756 2no G2192 1I have G5479 4joy], G2443 that G191 I should hear of G3588   G1699 my G5043 children G1722 [2in G225 3truth G4043 1walking].
  5 G27 Beloved, G4103 [2trusting G4160 1do] G3739 what G1437 ever G2038 you should work G1519 among G3588 the G80 brethren, G2532 and G1519 among G3588 the G3581 strangers,
  6 G3588 (the ones G3140 witnessing G1473 [3of yours G3588 1to the G26 2love] G1799 before G1577 the assembly), G3739 whom G2573 [2well G4160 1you shall do] G4311 having sent forward G516 worthily G3588   G2316 of God.
  7 G5228 For on account of G1063   G3588   G3686 his name G1473   G1831 they went forth G3367 [2nothing G2983 1taking] G575 from G3588 the G1484 nations.
  8 G1473 We G3767 then G3784 ought G618 to accept G3588   G5108 such, G2443 that G4904 [2fellow-workers G1096 1we should become] G3588 in the G225 truth.
  9 G1125 I wrote G3588 to the G1577 assembly, G235 but G3588 the one G5383 enjoying being first G1473 of them -- G* Diotrephes, G3756 does not G1926 welcome G1473 us.
  10 G1223 On account of this, G3778   G1437 if G2064 I come, G5279 I will remind G1473 him G3588 the G2041 works G3739 which G4160 he does -- G3056 [2words G4190 1evil] G5396 prating against G1473 us. G2532 And G3361 not G714 being sufficient G1909 with G3778 these, G3777 neither G1473 he himself G1926 welcomes G3588 the G80 brethren, G2532 and G3588 the ones G1014 wanting to G2967 he restrains, G2532 and G1537 [2of G3588 3the G1577 4assembly G1544 1casts them out].
  11 G27 Beloved, G3361 do not G3401 imitate G3588   G2556 evil, G235 but G3588 the G18 good! G3588 The one G15 doing good G1537 [2of G3588   G2316 3God G1510.2.3 1is]; G3588 but the one G1161   G2554 doing evil G3756 has not G3708 seen G3588   G2316 God.
  12 G* To Demetrius G3140 witness is borne G5259 by G3956 all, G2532 and G5259 by G1473 [3itself G3588 1the G225 2truth]; G2532 and we also G1473   G1161   G3140 bear witness, G2532 and G1492 you know G3754 that G3588   G3141 our witness G1473   G227 is true. G1510.2.3  
  13 G4183 Many things G2192 I have G1125 to write, G235 but G3756 I do not want G2309   G1223 by G3188 ink G2532 and G2563 reed G1473 to write to you. G1125  
  14 G1679 But I hope G1161   G2112 immediately G1492 to see G1473 you, G2532 and G4750 mouth G4314 to G4750 mouth G2980 we shall speak. G1515 Peace G1473 to you. G782 [3greet G1473 4you G3588 1The G5384 2friends]. G782 Greet G3588 the G5384 friends G2596 by G3686 name!
