2 John (KJV – 1611)

The 2nd Epistle of John ~ 1611 King James [Modern]
1:01 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:
1:02 For the truth’s sake which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever:
1:03 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.
1:04 I rejoiced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
1:05 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.
1:06 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.
1:07 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.
1:08 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
1:09 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 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 biddeth him God speed, is partaker of his evil deeds.
1:12 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 children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
