John Chapter 1
1 The elder unto the elect lady and her childrenwhom I love inthe truthand not I onlybut also all they that have knownthe truth
2 For the truth s sakewhich dwelleth in usand shall be withus for ever.
3 Grace be with youmercyand peacefrom God the Fatherandfrom the Lord Jesus Christthe Son of the Fatherin truthand love.
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking intruthas we have received a commandment from the Father.
5 And now I beseech theeladynot as though I wrote a newcommandment unto theebut that which we had from thebeginningthat we love one another.
6 And this is lovethat we walk after his commandments. This isthe commandmentThatas ye have heard from the beginningyeshould walk in it.
7 For many deceivers are entered into the worldwho confess notthat Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver andan antichrist.
8 Look to yourselvesthat we lose not those things which wehave wroughtbut that we receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgressethand abideth not in the doctrine ofChristhath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine ofChristhe hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto youand bring not this doctrinereceive him not into your houseneither bid him God speed
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evildeeds.
12 Having many things to write unto youI would not write withpaper and inkbut I trust to come unto youand speak face tofacethat our joy may be full.
13 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
