3 John 1

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

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

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.

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

5  Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;

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:

7  Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

8  We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.

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

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.
