Book 63 2 John 

Chapter 1

The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; , , and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth; , , For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever. , , Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. , , I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. , , And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. , , This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. , , For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. , , This is a deceiver and an antichrist. , , Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. , , Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. , , He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. , , If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 

Verse 11. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. , , Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full. , , The children of thy elect sister greet thee. , , Amen.
