11The elder to the 2chosen3lady and her children, whom I 4love in truth; and not only I, but alsoall who 5know the truth,
for 6the sake of the truth which abides7in us and will be 8with us forever:
39Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from JesusChrist, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
410I was veryglad to find some of your childrenwalking in truth, just as we have receivedcommandment to do from the Father.
5Now I ask you, lady, 11not as though I were writing to you a newcommandment, but the one which we have had12from the beginning, that we 13loveoneanother.
And 14this is love, that we walkaccording to His commandments. This is the commandment, 15just as you have heard16from the beginning, that you should walk in it.
