EHSV Second John

Translation by Daniel Gregg

Second Yōḥanan

Walk According to His Commandments
1 The elder to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all who know the truth, for the sake of the truth which dwells in us and will be with us past time immemorial. Loving-kindness, mercy and shalōm will be with us, from the Al­mĭgh­ty, the Fă­ther and from Yĕshūa̒ the Mĕs­si­ah, the Sŏn of the Fă­ther, in truth and love.
4 I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received com­mand­ment from the Fă­ther. And now I ask you, lady, not as writing to you a new commandment, but the one which we have had from the begin­ning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk ac­cording to his commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Yĕshūa̒ the Mĕs­si­ah as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the anti-messiah.
8  Watch yourselves, that you should not lose what we have ac­com­plished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not remain in the teaching of Mĕs­si­ah, does not have the Al­mĭgh­ty. The one who re­mains in the teaching, he has both the Fă­ther and the Sŏn. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting, 11 because the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
12 12 Having many things to write to you, I do not want to do so with paper and ink, but I hope to come to you and speak face to face, that your joy may be made full.
13 13 The children of your chosen sister greet you.
