1 <section begin="c1v1"/>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;<section end="c1v1"/>

2 <section begin="c1v2"/>For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.<section end="c1v2"/>

3 <section begin="c1v3"/>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.<section end="c1v3"/>

4 <section begin="c1v4"/>I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.<section end="c1v4"/>

5 <section begin="c1v5"/>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.<section end="c1v5"/>

6 <section begin="c1v6"/>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.<section end="c1v6"/>

7 <section begin="c1v7"/>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.<section end="c1v7"/>
