[1], ...of one

  3rd Letter of John

    1 The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love
   in the truth.
    2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest
   prosper and be in health, even as thy soul
    3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and
   testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou
   walkest in the truth.
    4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my
   children walk in truth.
    5 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou
   doest to the brethren, and to strangers;
    6 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the
   church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey
   after a godly sort, thou shalt do well:
    7 Because that for his name's sake they went forth,
   taking nothing of the Gentiles.
    8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might
   be fellowhelpers to the truth.
    9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who
   loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth
   us not.
   10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds
   which he doeth, prating against us with malicious
   words: and not content therewith, neither doth he
   himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them
   that would, and casteth them out of the church.
   11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that
   which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he
   that doeth evil hath not seen God.
   12 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the
   truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye
   know that our record is true.
   13 I had many things to write, but I will not with
   ink and pen write unto thee:
   14 But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall
   speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends
   salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
