The King James Clarified (KJC) New Testament
The Third Letter Of John
- 1:1 The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.
- 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, just as your
- 1:3 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brothers came and testified of the truth that is in you,
just as you walk in the truth.
- 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
- 1:5 Beloved, you are doing faithfully whatsoever you are doing to the brothers, and to
- 1:6 Which have borne witness of your love before the church: whom if you bring forward
on their journey after a godly sort, you shall do well:
- 1:7 Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.
- 1:8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellow helpers to the truth.
- 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among
them, receives us not.
- 1:10 Therefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he does, prating against us
with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither does he himself receive the
brothers, and forbids them that would, and casts them out of the church.
- 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that does good is
of God: but he that does evil has not seen God.
- 1:12 Demetrius has good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yes, and we also bear
record; and you know that our record is true.
- 1:13 I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto you:
- 1:14 But I trust I shall shortly see you, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to you.
Our friends salute you. Greet the friends by name.
