2 John 1:1

1 The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth, and not only I but also all who know the truth,

2 John 1:1 In-Context

1 The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth, and not only I but also all who know the truth,
2 because of the truth that abides 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 Father's Son, in truth and love.
4 I was overjoyed to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as we have been commanded by the Father.
5 But now, dear lady, I ask you, not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but one we have had from the beginning, let us love one another.
