2 John 1

NLT 1 This letter is from John, the elder. I am writing to the chosen lady and to her children, whom I love in the truth—as does everyone else who knows the truth— NIV 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-- NLT 2 because the truth lives in us and will be with us forever. NIV 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever: NLT 3 Grace, mercy, and peace, which come from God the Father and from Jesus Christ—the Son of the Father—will continue to be with us who live in truth and love. NIV 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. NLT 4 How happy I was to meet some of your children and find them living according to the truth, just as the Father commanded. NIV 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. NLT 5 I am writing to remind you, dear friends, that we should love one another. This is not a new commandment, but one we have had from the beginning. NIV 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. NLT 6 Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning. NIV 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. NLT 7 I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist. NIV 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. NLT 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. NIV 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. NLT 9 Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son. NIV 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. NLT 10 If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement. NIV 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. NLT 11 Anyone who encourages such people becomes a partner in their evil work. NIV 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work. NLT 12 I have much more to say to you, but I don’t want to do it with paper and ink. For I hope to visit you soon and talk with you face to face. Then our joy will be complete. NIV 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. NLT 13 Greetings from the children of your sister, chosen by God. NIV 13 The children of your chosen sister send their greetings.
