3Surat rd John

1:1 The Elder, to Gaius, paling dicintai, yang kukasihi dalam kebenaran.
1:2 Paling dicintai, concerning everything, I make it my prayer that you may benefit by advancing and succeeding in whatever may be to the benefit of your soul.
1:3 I was very glad when the brothers arrived, and when they offered testimony to the truth in you, that you are walking in the truth.
1:4 I have no greater grace than this, when I hear that my sons are walking in the truth.
1:5 Paling dicintai, anda perlu bertindak dengan setia dalam apa jua yang anda lakukan untuk saudara-saudara, dan orang-orang yang mendapat izin;
1:6 mereka telah memberikan kesaksian kepada badan amal budimu di mata Gereja. Anda akan kepada yang baik untuk membawa orang-orang ini layak kepada Allah.
1:7 Bagi mereka yang dinyatakan, bagi pihak namanya, menerima apa-apa dari orang-orang kafir.
1:8 Oleh itu, kita mesti menerima seperti ini, supaya kita dapat bekerja sama dengan kebenaran.
1:9 As it happens, I had written to the church. But Diotrephes, who loves to bear the highest rank among them, would not accept us.
1:10 Disebabkan ini, when I come, I will admonish his works which he does, babbling against us with malicious words. And as if this were not sufficient for him, he himself does not receive the brothers. And those who do receive them, he hinders, and he ejects them from the church.
1:11 Paling dicintai, do not be willing to imitate what is evil; instead imitate what is good. Whoever does good is of God. Whoever does evil has not seen God.
1:12 Testimony is being given for Demetrius by everyone, and by the truth itself. And we also offer testimony. And you know that our testimony is true.
1:13 I had many things to write to you, but I am not willing, through ink and pen, untuk menulis kepada anda.
1:14 Yet I hope to see you soon, and then we will speak face to face. Peace to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends by name.
