||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;
||The Elder to the choice Kyria, and to her children, whom I love in truth, and not I only, but also all those having known the truth,
||For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
||because of the truth that is remaining in us, and with us shall be to the age,
||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.
||there shall be with you grace, kindness, peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
||I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
||I rejoiced exceedingly that I have found of thy children walking in truth, even as a command we did receive from the Father;
||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.
||and now I beseech thee, Kyria, not as writing to thee a new command, but which we had from the beginning, that we may love one another,
||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.
||and this is the love, that we may walk according to His commands; this is the command, even as ye did hear from the beginning, that in it ye may walk,
||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.
||because many leading astray did enter into the world, who are not confessing Jesus Christ coming in flesh; this one is he who is leading astray, and the antichrist.
||Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
||See to yourselves that ye may not lose the things that we wrought, but a full reward may receive;
||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.

||If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
||if any one doth come unto you, and this teaching doth not bear, receive him not into the house, and say not to him, `Hail!'
||For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
||for he who is saying to him, `Hail,' hath fellowship with his evil works.
||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.
||Many things having to write to you, I did not intend through paper and ink, but I hope to come unto you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy may be full;
||The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
||salute thee do the children of thy choice sister. Amen.
