3rd Epistle of John of the Christian Holy Bible

3 John 1:1 The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love  in the truth.  

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest  prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 

3 John 1:3  For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified  of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.  

3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children  walk in truth. 

3 John 1:5 Beloved, thou doest faithfully  whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;  

3 John 1:6 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the  church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a  godly sort, thou shalt do well: 

3 John 1:7 Because that for his  name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.  

3 John 1:8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be  fellow helpers to the truth.  

3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth  to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.  

3 John 1:10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds  which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words:  and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive  the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth  them out of the church.  

3 John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that  which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that  doeth evil hath not seen God. 

3 John 1:12 Demetrius hath good  report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also  bear record; and ye know that our record is true.  

3 John 1:13 I had many things to write, but I will not with ink  and pen write unto thee: 

3 John 1:14 But I trust I shall shortly  see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee.  Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
