  2nd Letter of John

    1 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;
    2 For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and
   shall be with us for ever.
    3 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.
    4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children
   walking in truth, as we have received a commandment
   from the Father.
    5 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.
    6 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.
    7 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.
    8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things
   which we have wrought, but that we receive a full
    9 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.
   10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this
   doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither
   bid him God speed:
   11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of
   his evil deeds.
   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
   13 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
