1 G4245 The elder, G1588 to the chosen G2959 lady G2532 and G846 her G5043 children, G3739 whom G1473 I G25 love G1722 in G225 truth; G2532 and G3756 not G1473 I G3441 only, G235 but G2532 also G3956 all G1097 those who know G225 the truth;
2 G1223 for G225 the truth's sake, G3588 which G3306 remains G1722 in G2254 us, G2532 and G2071 it will be G3326 with G2257 us G1519 G165 forever:
3 G5485 Grace, G1656 mercy, G1515 and peace G2071 will be G3326 with G2257 us, 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 I rejoice G3029 greatly G3754 that G2147 I have found G1537 some of G4675 your G5043 children G4043 walking G1722 in G225 truth, G2531 even as G2983 we have been G1785 commanded G3844 by G3962 the Father.
5 G2532 G3568 Now G2065 I beg G4571 you, G2959 dear lady, G3756 not G5613 as G1125 though I wrote G4671 to you G2537 a new G1785 commandment, G235 but G2443 that G3739 which G2192 we had G575 from G746 the beginning, G2443 that G25 we love G240 one another.
6 G2532 G3778 This G2076 is G26 love, G2443 that G4043 we should walk G2596 according G846 to his G1785 commandments. G3778 This G2076 is G1785 the commandment, G2443 even G2531 as G191 you heard G575 from G746 the beginning, G4043 that you should walk G1722 in G846 it.
7 G3754 For G4183 many G4108 deceivers G1525 have gone out G1519 into G2889 the world, G3361 those who don't G3670 confess G2424 that Jesus G5547 Christ G2064 came G1722 in G4561 the flesh. G3778 This G2076 is G4108 the deceiver G2532 and G500 the Antichrist.
8 G991 Watch G1438 yourselves, G2443 that G3361 we don't G622 lose G3739 the things which G2038 we have accomplished, G235 but G618 that we receive G3408 a G4134 full G3408 reward.
9 G3956 Whoever G3845 transgresses G2532 and G3361 doesn't G3306 remain G1722 in G1322 the teaching G5547 of Christ, G3756 doesn't G2192 have G2316 God. G3306 He who remains G1722 in G1322 the teaching, G5547 G2192 the same has G2532 both G3962 the Father G2532 and G5207 the Son.
10 G1487 If G5100 anyone G2064 comes G4314 to G5209 you, G2532 and G3361 doesn't G5342 bring G3778 this G1322 teaching, G3756 don't G2983 receive G846 him G1519 into G2532 your house, G3361 and don't G3004 G5463 welcome G846 him,
11 G1063 for G3004 he who G5463 welcomes G846 him G2841 participates G2041 in G846 his G4190 evil G2041 works.
12 G2192 Having G4183 many G1125 things to write G5213 to you, G3756 I don't G1014 want G1223 to do so with G5489 paper G2532 and G3188 ink, G235 but G1679 I hope G2064 to come G4314 to G5209 you, G2532 and G2980 to speak G4750 face G4314 to G4750 face, G2443 that G2257 our G5479 joy G5600 may be G4137 made full.
