1:1 The elder man to the lady Electa, and to her children, which I love in truth; and not I alone, but and all men that knew truth; The senior to the elect lady and her children which I love in the truth: And not I only: but also all that have known the truth, The Elder to the elect Lady, and her children, whom I love in the truth: and not I only, but also all that have known the truth, The Elder unto the elect Lady, and her children, whom I love in the truth: and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth:
1:2 for the truth that dwelleth in you, and with you shall be into without end. for the truth’s sake, which remaineth in us, and shall be in us for ever. For the truth’s sake which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever: For the truth’s sake which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever:
1:3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace of God the Father, and of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and charity. With you be grace, mercy, and peace from God the father, and from the lord Jesus Christ the son of the father, in truth and love. Grace be with you, mercy & peace from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of the Father, with truth and love. Grace be with you, mercy, and peace from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father in truth and love.
1:4 I joyed full much, for I found of thy sons going in truth, as we received commandment of the Father. I rejoiced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment of the father. I rejoiced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment of the Father. I rejoiced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
1:5 And now I pray thee, lady, not as writing a new commandment to thee, but that that we had from the beginning, that we love each other. And now beseech I thee lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that same, which we had from the beginning, that we should love one another. And now beseech I thee, Lady, (not as writing a new commandment unto thee, but that same which we had from the beginning) that we love one another. And now, I beseech thee Lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee: but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
1:6 And this is charity, that we walk after his commandments. For this is the commandment, that as ye heard at the beginning, walk ye in him. And this is the love, that we should walk after his commandments. This commandment is (that as ye have heard from the beginning) ye should walk in it. And this is the love, that we should walk after his commandments. This commandment is, that as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. And this is love, that we walk after his Commandments. This is the Commandment, that as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
1:7 For many deceivers went out into the world, which acknowledge not that Jesus Christ hath come in flesh; this is a deceiver and antichrist. For many deceivers are entered into the world, which confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist. For many deceivers are entered into the world, which confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. He that is such one, is a deceiver and an Antichrist. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver, and an Antichrist.
1:8 See ye yourselves, lest ye lose the things that ye have wrought, but that ye receive full meed; Look on yourselves, that we lose not that we have wrought: but that we may have a full reward. Look to yourselves, that we lose not the things, which we have done, but that we may receive a full reward. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
1:9 witting that each man that goeth away, and dwelleth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God. He that dwelleth in the teaching of Christ, hath both the Son and the Father. Whosoever transgresseth and bideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God He that endureth in the doctrine of Christ, hath both the father, and the son. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that continueth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. Whosoever transgresseth and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
1:10 If any man cometh to you, and bringeth not this teaching, do not ye receive him into your house, neither say to him, Hail. If there come any unto you and bring not this learning, him receive not to house: neither bid him god speed. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not to house, neither bid him, God speed. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him, God speed.
1:11 For he that saith to him, Hail, communeth with his evil works. Lo! I before-said to you, that ye be not confounded in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he that biddeth him God speed, is partaker of his evil deeds. For he that biddeth him, God speed, is partaker of his evil deeds. For he that biddeth him God speed, is partaker of his evil deeds.
1:12 I having more things to write to you, would not by parchment and ink; for I hope that I shall come to you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy be full. I had many things to write unto you, nevertheless I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak with you mouth to mouth, that our joy may be full. Although I had many things to write unto you, yet I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy may be full. Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink, but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.
1:13 The sons of thy sister Electa greet thee well. The grace of God be with thee. Amen. The sons of thy elect sister greet thee Amen. The sons of thine elect sister greet thee, Amen. The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
