¶ 2 John 1 v1-3

{ heart }   [2J] 1v1

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;

{ heart }   [2J] 1v2

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

{ heart }   [2J] 1v3

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.

¶ 2 John 1 v4-6

{ heart }   [2J] 1v4

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

{ heart }   [2J] 1v5

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.

{ heart }   [2J] 1v6

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’.

¶ 2 John 1 v7-11

{ heart }   [2J] 1v7

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.

{ heart }   [2J] 1v8

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

{ heart }   [2J] 1v9

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.

{ heart }   [2J] 1v10

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

{ heart }   [2J] 1v11

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

¶ 2 John 1 v12-13

{ heart }   [2J] 1v12

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.

{ heart }   [2J] 1v13

The children of thy elect sister greet thee.
Amen.
