3 John 1

He commendeth Gaius for his piety

3 John 1:1 The elder vnto ye beloued Gaius, whom I loue in the trueth. 3 John 1:2 Beloued, I wishe in all thynges that thou prosperedst and faredst well, euen as thy soule prospereth. 3 John 1:3 For I reioyced greatly, when the brethren came & testified of the trueth that is in thee, how thou walkest in ye trueth. 3 John 1:4 I haue no greater ioy, the for to heare how that my sonnes walke in veritie.

and hospitality

3 John 1:5 Beloued, thou doest faythfully whatsoeuer thou doest to the brethren, and to straungers, 3 John 1:6 Which beare witnesse of thy loue before the Churche. Which brethren, yf thou bryng forwardes of their iourney after a godly sorte, thou shalt do well.

to true preachers:

3 John 1:7 Because that for his names sake they went foorth, and toke nothyng of the gentiles. 3 John 1:8 We therfore ought to receaue such, that we myght be helpers to the trueth.

complaining of the unkind dealing of ambitious Diotrephes on the contrary side,

3 John 1:9 I wrote vnto the Churche: but Diotrephes which loueth to haue the preeminence among the, receaueth vs not. 3 John 1:10 Wherfore yf I come, I wyll declare his deedes which he doth, iestyng on vs with malicious wordes, neither is therwith content: not only he hym selfe receaueth not the brethren: but also he forbiddeth the that woulde, and thrusteth them out of the Churche.

whose evil example is not to be followed:

3 John 1:11 Beloued, folow not that which is euyl, but that which is good. He that doth well, is of God: but he that doth euyll, seeth not God.

and giveth special testimony to the good report of Demetrius.

3 John 1:12 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the trueth it selfe: Yea, and we our selues also beare recorde, and ye knowe that our recorde is true. 3 John 1:13 I haue many thynges to write: but I wyll not with inke and penne write vnto thee. 3 John 1:14 I trust I shal shortly see thee, and we shall speake mouth to mouth. Peace be vnto thee. The louers salute thee. Greete the louers by name.
