2 John (Tyndale – 1526)

The 2nd Epistle of John ~ 1526 Tyndale [Modern]
1:01 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,
1:02 for the truth’s sake, which remaineth in us, and shall be in us for ever.
1:03 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.
1:04 I rejoiced greatly, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment of the father.
1:05 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.
1:06 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.
1:07 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.
1:08 Look on yourselves, that we lose not that we have wrought: but that we may have a full reward.
1:09 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.
1:10 If there come any unto you and bring not this learning, him receive not to house: neither bid him god speed.
1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed, is partaker of his evil deeds.
1:12 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.
1:13 The sons of thy elect sister greet thee Amen.
