3 JOHN To Index
3 John, chapter
1: The elder to the beloved Ga'ius, whom I love in the truth.
I have written something to the church; but Diot'rephes, who likes to
put himself first, does not acknowledge my authority.
10: So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, prating against me with evil words. And not content with that, he refuses himself to welcome the brethren, and also stops those who want to welcome them and puts them out of the church.
11: Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. He who does good is of God; he who does evil has not seen God.
12: Deme'trius has testimony from every one, and from the truth itself; I testify to him too, and you know my testimony is true.
13: I had much to write to you, but I would rather not write with pen and ink;
14: I hope to see you soon, and we will talk together face to face.
15: Peace be to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends, every one of them.
