Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 From the Zaken (Elder, SHEMOT 3:16). To the Gevirah HaBechirah (the Chosen Lady) and her Banim (Sons, Children), for whom I have ahavah (agape) b'Emes, and not only I but also all those who have Da'as HaEmes (Knowledge of the Truth), 2 Because of HaEmes that dwells inside us, and will be immanu (with us) for Yamim HaOlam. 3 Chen v'Chesed Hashem (unmerited Favor and Kindness), Rachamim Hashem (Mercy), and Shalom Hashem (Peace) will be immanu (with us) from Elohim HaAv and from Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua/Yeshua [Zech 6:11-12; Ezra 3:8], HaBen of HaAv, in Emes and Ahavah (agape).
4 I had simcha gedola (much joy) that I have found some of your Banim with a walk which is Halichah b'Derech Emes (Conduct in the Way of Truth), just as we received a mitzvah (commandment) to do so from HaAv [1:3]. 5 And now I beseech you, Gevirah [1:1], not as a mitzvah chadasha (new commandment) I am writing you, but that which we had meyReshit (from the Beginning): that we should have ahavah (agape) one for the other [Yochanan 13:34]. 6 And this is ahavah, that we should walk with a halichah according to the Mitzvot of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach; this is the mitzvah just as you have heard it meyReshit. You must walk in it [1:5].
7 Because mat'im rabbim (many misleaders, deceivers) have gone out into the world, the ones not making the Ani Ma'amin moyde (confession) that Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua/Yeshua [Zech 6:11-12; Ezra 3:8] habah b'basar (has come in bodily flesh); this one is HaMat'eh (the Deceiving One) and the AntiMoshiach. 8 Watch out for yourselves, lest you lose what we worked for, but may receive a sachar maleh (full reward). 9 Everyone who runs ahead and does not remain in the torah of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach does not have Hashem; the one remaining in the torah [of Moshiach], this one has both HaAv and HaBen. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this torah, do not receive him into your house [kehillah, shtiebel], and do not give him Drishat Shalom. 11 For the one giving Drishat Shalom to him has shuttafut (partnership) with his ma'asim hara'im (evil deeds).
12 I have many things to write to you; I wanted not to do so with parchment and ink, but I have the tikvah (hope) to be with you and to speak panim el panim (directly, in person--DEVARIM 34:10), that our simcha (joy) may be shleimah (complete).
13 Drishat Shalom from the Banim of your Achot HaBechirah (Chosen Sister).
