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;
2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us forever.
3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from יהוה (YHWH) the Father, and from our Lord (Adonai) A1YHWH haMashiach, the B47Humanity of the Father, in truth and love.
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of your children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
5 And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
6 And this is love, that we walk after His commandments. This is the commandment, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you
should walk in it.
7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that YHWH haMashiach is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Messiah (anti-Mashiach).
8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of the Messiah (haMashiach), hath not God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)). He that abideth in the doctrine of the Messiah (haMashiach), he hath both the Father and the Son (Humanity of El (YHWH)).
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him peace.
11 For he that biddeth him peace is partaker of his evil deeds.
12 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.
13 The children of your elect sister greet you. So be it (Amen).
