1 The elder to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not only I, but also all who 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 for the sake of the truth which abides in 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 peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, 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 glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received commandment to do 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 Now I ask you, lady, not as though I were writing to you a new commandment, but the one 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 love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in 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, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the 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 Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, 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.
