Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Ancient to the lady Elect and her children, whom I love in the truth: and not I only, but also all they that have known 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 For the sake of the truth which dwelleth in us and shall be with us for ever. 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever:
3 Grace be with you, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Christ Jesus the Son of the Father: in truth and charity. 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 exceeding glad that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. 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 I beseech thee, lady, not as writing a new commandment to thee, but that which we have had from the beginning, that we love one another. 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 And this is charity: That we walk according to his commandments. For this is the commandment that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in the same: 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 seducers are gone out into the world who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a seducer and an antichrist. 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 Look to yourselves, that you lose not the things which you have wrought: but that you may receive a full reward. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
9 Whosoever revolteth and continueth not in the doctrine of Christ hath not God. He that continueth in the doctrine, the same hath 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 any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him: God speed you. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him.
11 For he that saith unto him: God speed you, communicateth with his wicked works. 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.
12 Having more things to write unto you, I would not by paper and ink: for I hope that I shall be with you and speak face to face, that your joy may be full. 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 thy sister Elect salute thee. 13 The children of your chosen sister send their greetings.
