3 John 1:5-15 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
5 Beloved, you are acting faithfully in whatever you accomplish for the 1brethren, and aespecially when they are 2strangers ; 6 and they have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to 3send them on their way in a manner 4worthy of God. 7 For they went out for the sake of 5the Name, 6accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to bsupport such men, so that we may cbe fellow workers dwith the truth. 9 I wrote something to the church ; but Diotrephes, who loves to 7be first among them, does not accept ewhat we say. 10 For this reason, 8if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words ; and not satisfied with this, he himself does not 9receive the 10brethren, either, and he forbids those who desire to do so and 11puts them out of the church. 11 Beloved, 12do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. 13The one who does good is of God ; 14the one who does evil has not seen God. 12 Demetrius 15has received a good testimony from everyone, and from the truth itself ; and we add our testimony, and 16you know that our testimony is true. 13 17I had many things to write to you, but I am not willing to write them to you with pen and ink ; 14 but I hope to see you shortly, and we will speak face to face. 15 18Peace be to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends 19by name.
