Fred Miller's Revised King James' Version

2nd. JOHN


1The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all those who have known the truth; 2For the truth's sake, which dwells in us and shall be with us for ever. 3Grace 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. 4I rejoiced greatly that I found your children walking in truth, as we have received commandment from the Father.

5And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.

7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who do not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9Who ever transgresses, and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ, does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, has both the Father and the Son.

10If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house, nor bid him God speed: 11For he who bids him God speed is a partaker of his evil deeds.

12Having many things to write to you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come to you and speak face to face, that our joy may be full. 13The children of your elect sister greet you. Amen.
