Book of John 2 - Chapter 1

John 2 1:1

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;

John 2 1:2

For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

John 2 1:3

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.

John 2 1:4

I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

John 2 1:5

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.

John 2 1:6

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.

John 2 1:7

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.

John 2 1:8

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

John 2 1:9

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.

John 2 1:10

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into [your] house, neither bid him God speed:

John 2 1:11

For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

John 2 1:12

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.

John 2 1:13

The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
