1 From: The Elder To: The chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth - and not only I but also all who have come to know the truth - 1 The elder, To the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in the truth--and not I only, but also all who know the truth--
2 because of the Truth which remains united with us and will be with us forever: 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever:
3 Grace, mercy and shalom will be with us from God the Father and from Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 3 Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, will be with us in truth and love.
4 I was very happy when I found some of your children living in truth, just as the Father commanded us. 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.
5 And now, dear lady, I am requesting that we love one another - not as if this were a new command I am writing you, for it is the one which we have had from the beginning. 5 And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another.
6 Moreover, love is this: that we should live according to his commands. This is the command, as you people have heard from the beginning; live by it! 6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, people who do not acknowledge Yeshua the Messiah's coming as a human being. Such a person is a deceiver and an anti-Messiah. 7 Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
8 Watch yourselves, so that you won't lose what you have worked for, but will receive your full reward. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
9 Everyone who goes ahead and does not remain true to what the Messiah has taught does not have God. Those who remain true to his teaching have both the Father and the Son. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
10 If someone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, don't welcome him into your home. Don't even say, "Shalom!" to him; 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him.
11 for the person who says, "Shalom!" to him shares in his evil deeds. 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.
12 Although I have much to write you people, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to come and see you and to talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete. 12 I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete.
13 The children of your chosen sister send you their greetings. 13 The children of your chosen sister send their greetings.
