Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1The Elder to The Elect lady and her children, those whom I love in the truth, but it is not I only, but also all those who know the truth, 2Because of the truth which dwells in us and is with us for eternity. 3May grace, mercy and peace be with us, from God The Father and from Our Lord, Yeshua The Messiah, The Son of The Father, in truth and in love.
4I rejoiced much when I found some of your children walking in truth, according to the commandment which we have received from The Father. 5And now I would persuade you Lady, not according to the new commandment I wrote to you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6And this is love, that we walk according to his commandment; this commandment is according to what you have heard from the beginning, in which you have been walking.
7For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess that Yeshua The Messiah has come in the flesh; such a person is a deceiver and antichrist. 8Pay attention to your souls, that you do not lose anything which you have cultivated, but that you may receive a full reward. 9No one who is a violator and does not continue in the teaching of The Messiah has God in him. He who continues in his teaching, this one has The Father and The Son. 10If a man comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into the house and you shall not say to him, "You are welcome." 11For he that says to him, "You are welcome", is a partaker with his evil deeds.*
12As I had much to write to you, I did not want to speak with parchment and ink, but I hope to come to you and we shall speak face-to-face, that our joy may be complete.
13The children of your Elect sister invoke your peace. Amen. The Third Epistle of The Apostle John
