2 John 1:1-8

NIRV 1 I, the elder, am writing this letter. I am sending it to the chosen lady and her children. I love all of you because of the truth. I'm not the only one who loves you. So does everyone who knows the truth. NIV 1 The elder, To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I only, but also all who know the truth— NIRV 2 I love you because of the truth that is alive in us. That truth will be with us forever. NIV 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever: NIRV 3 God the Father and Jesus Christ his Son will give you grace, mercy and peace. Those blessings will be with us because we love the truth. 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. NIRV 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children living by the truth. That's just what the Father commanded us to do. NIV 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. NIRV 5 Dear lady, I'm not writing you a new command. I'm writing a command we've had from the beginning. I'm asking that we love one another. 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. NIRV 6 The way we show our love is to obey God's commands. He commands you to lead a life of love. That's what you have 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. NIRV 7 Many people who try to fool others have gone out into the world. They don't agree that Jesus Christ came in a human body. People like that try to trick others. They are enemies of Christ. NIV 7 I say this because 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. NIRV 8 Watch out that you don't lose what you have worked for. Make sure that you get your complete reward. NIV 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
