The Third Epistle of John

Chapter 1

1 <section begin="1:1"/>The elder unto Gaius the beloved, whom I love in truth.<section end="1:1"/>

2 <section begin="1:2"/>Beloved, I pray that in all things thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.<section end="1:2"/>

3 <section begin="1:3"/>For I rejoiced greatly, when brethren came and bare witness unto thy truth, even as thou walkest in truth.<section end="1:3"/>

4 <section begin="1:4"/>Greater joy have I none than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.<section end="1:4"/>

5 <section begin="1:5"/>Beloved, thou doest a faithful work in whatsoever thou doest toward them that are brethren and strangers withal;<section end="1:5"/>

6 <section begin="1:6"/>who bare witness to thy love before the church: whom thou wilt do well to set forward on their journey worthily of God:<section end="1:6"/>

7 <section begin="1:7"/>because that for the sake of the Name they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.<section end="1:7"/>

8 <section begin="1:8"/>We therefore ought to welcome such, that we may be fellow-workers for the truth.<section end="1:8"/>

9 <section begin="1:9"/>I wrote somewhat unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.<section end="1:9"/>

10 <section begin="1:10"/>Therefore, if I come, I will bring to remembrance his works which he doeth, prating against us with wicked words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and them that would he forbiddeth and casteth [them] out of the church.<section end="1:10"/>

11 <section begin="1:11"/>Beloved, imitate not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: he that doeth evil hath not seen God.<section end="1:11"/>

12 <section begin="1:12"/>Demetrius hath the witness of all [men], and of the truth itself: yea, we also bear witness: and thou knowest that our witness is true.<section end="1:12"/>

13 <section begin="1:13"/>I had many things to write unto thee, but I am unwilling to write [them] to thee with ink and pen:<section end="1:13"/>

14 <section begin="1:14"/>but I hope shortly to see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace [be] unto thee. The friends salute thee. Salute the friends by name.<section end="1:14"/>
