3 John

ECB(i) 1
The elder: To the beloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth: 2 Beloved, I vow concerning all that you prosper and be whole, exactly as your soul prospers. 3 For I cheered extremely when the brothers came and witnessed of the truth within you; even as you walk in the truth. 4 I have no greater cheer than these - than to hear that my children walk in truth. 5
Beloved, deal trustworthily whenever you work to the brothers and to strangers 6 - who witnessed of your love in the sight of the ecclesia: whom, if you forward worthily of Elohim, you do well: 7 indeed, for sake of his name they went forth taking naught of the goyim. 8 So we are indebted to take such to become co-workers to the truth. 9 I scribed to the ecclesia: but Diotrephes, who befriends preeminence among them, receives us not. 10 So, whenever I come, I remember the works he does, babbling against us with evil words: and not satisfied by these he himself receives not the brothers and forbids them who so will - and casts them from the ecclesia. 11 Beloved, mimic not evil, but good. everyone doing good is of Elohim: but everyone doing evil has not seen Elohim. 12 Demetrius is witnessed by all, and of the truth itself: yes, and we witness; and you know our witness is true. 13
I have much to scribe, but I scribe not to you through ink and reed: 14 and I hope to see you straightway and speak mouth to mouth. Shalom to you. The friends salute you. Salute the friends by name.
