Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The elder man, to the chosen lady [The elder man to the lady Electa], and to her children, which I love in truth; and not I alone, but also all men that know truth [but and all men that knew 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 truth that dwelleth in you, and with you shall be without end. [for the truth that dwelleth in you, and with you shall be into without end]. 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever:
3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace of God the Father, and of Jesus Christ, 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 joyed full much, for I found of thy sons going in truth, as we received commandment of 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 pray thee, lady, not as writing a new commandment to thee, but that that we had from the beginning, that we love each other. 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 after his commandments. For this is the commandment, that as ye heard at the beginning, walk ye in him. 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 went out into the world, which acknowledge not that Jesus Christ hath come in flesh; this is a deceiver and 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 See ye yourselves, lest ye lose the things that ye have wrought, [but] that ye receive full meed; 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
9 witting that each man that goeth before [witting that each man that goeth away], and dwelleth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God. He that dwelleth in the teaching [of Christ], hath both the Son and the Father. 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 cometh to you, and bringeth not this teaching, do not ye receive him into your house, neither say to him, Hail. 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 to him, Hail, communeth with his evil works. Lo! I before-said to you, that ye be not confounded in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.
12 I have more things to write to you, and I would not by parchment and ink [I having more things to write to you, would not by parchment and ink]; for I hope that I shall come to you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy 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 sons of thy chosen sister greet thee well [The sons of thy sister Electa greet thee well]. The grace of God be with thee. Amen. 13 The children of your chosen sister send their greetings.
