1 G4245 The elder G27 unto the wellbeloved G1050 Gaius, G3739 whom G1473 I G25 love G1722 in G225 the truth.
2 G27 Beloved, G2172 I wish G4012 above G3956 all things G2137 that G4571 you G2137 may prosper G2532 and G5198 be in health, G2531 even as G4675 your G5590 soul G2137 prospers.
3 G1063 For G5463 I rejoiced G3029 greatly, G80 when the brothers G2064 came G2532 and G3140 testified of G225 the truth G4675 that is in you, G2531 even as G4771 you G4043 walk G1722 in G225 the truth.
4 G2192 I have G3756 no G3186 greater G5479 joy G2443 than G191 to hear G1699 that my G5043 sons G4043 walk G1722 in G225 truth.
5 G27 Beloved, G4160 you do G4103 faithfully G3739 whatever G2038 you do G1519 to G80 the brothers, G2532 and G1519 to G3581 strangers;
6 G3739 Which G3140 have borne witness G4675 of your G26 love G1799 before G1577 the church: G3739 whom G4311 if you bring forward on their journey G516 after G2316 a godly sort, G4160 you shall do G2573 well:
7 G1063 Because that G5228 for G846 his G3686 name's G5228 sake G1831 they went forth, G2983 taking G3367 nothing G575 of G1484 the Gentiles.
8 G2249 We G3767 therefore G3784 ought G618 to receive G5108 such, G2443 that G1096 we might be G4904 fellowhelpers G225 to the truth.
9 G1125 I wrote unto G1577 the church: G235 but G1361 Diotrephes, G5383 who loves to have the preeminence G846 among them, G1926 receives G2248 us G3756 not.
10 G5124 Therefore, G1437 if G2064 I come, G5279 I will remember G846 his G2041 deeds G3739 which G4160 he does, G5396 prating against G2248 us G3056 with G4190 malicious G3056 words: G2532 and G3361 not G714 content G5125 with it, G3777 neither G1926 does G846 he himself G1926 receive G80 the brothers, G2532 and G2967 forbids G1014 them that would, G2532 and G1544 casts G1537 them out of G1577 the church.
11 G27 Beloved, G3401 follow G3361 not G3588 that which is G2556 evil, G235 but G3588 that which is G18 good. G3588 He G15 that does good G2076 is G1537 of G2316 God: G1161 but G3588 he G2554 that does evil G3708 has G3756 not G3708 seen G2316 God.
12 G1216 Demetrius G3140 has good report G5259 of G3956 all G2532 men, and G5259 of G225 the truth G846 itself: G1161 Yes, G2532 and G2249 we G3140 also bear record; G2532 and G1492 you know G3754 that G2257 our G3141 record G2076 is G227 true.
13 G2192 I had G4183 many things G1125 to write, G235 but G2309 I will G3756 not G1223 with G3188 ink G2532 and G2563 pen G1125 write G4671 unto you:
