3 John 1

He commendeth Gaius for his piety

3 John 1:1 The Elder vnto the beloven Gayus whom I love in ye trueth. 3 John 1:2 Beloved I wisshe in all thinges that thou prosperedest and faredest well eve as thy soule prospereth. 3 John 1:3 I reioysed greatly when the brethren came and testified of the trueth that is in the how thou walkest in trouthe. 3 John 1:4 I have no greater ioye then for to heare howe that my sonnes walke in veritie.

and hospitality

3 John 1:5 Beloved thou doest faythfully what soever thou doest to the brethren and to straungers 3 John 1:6 which bare witnes of thy love before all the congregacion. Which brethren whe thou bryngest forwardes on their iorney (as it besemeth god) thou shalt do well:

3 John 1:7 because that for his names sake they went forth and toke nothinge of the gentyls. 3 John 1:8 We therfore ought to receave soche that we also 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 congregacio: but Diotrephes which loveth to have the preeminence amoge them receaveth vs not. 3 John 1:10 Wherfore yf I come I will declare his dedes which he doeth iestinge on vs with malicious wordes nether is therewith content. Not only he him silfe receaveth not the brethre: but also he forbiddeth them that wolde and thrusteth them out of the congregacion.

whose evil example is not to be followed:

3 John 1:11 Beloved folowe not that which is evyll but that which is good. He that doeth well is of God: but he yt doeth evyll seith not God.

and giveth special testimony to the good report of Demetrius.

3 John 1:12 Demetrius hath good reporte of all men and of the trueth: ye and we oure selves also beare recorde and ye knowe that oure recorde is true. 3 John 1:13 I have many thinges to wryte: but I will not with ynke and penne wryte vnto the. 3 John 1:14 For I trust I shall shortly se the and we shall speake mouth to mouth. Peace be with the. The lovers salute the. Grete the lovers by name.
