The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752





THE THIRD EPISTLE OF ST. JOHN THE APOSTLE

St. John praises Gaius for his walking in truth and for his charity,
complains of the bad conduct of Diotrephes and gives a good testimony to
Demetrius.


3 John Chapter 1

1:1. The Ancient, to the dearly beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth.

1:2. Dearly beloved, concerning all things I make it my prayer that thou
mayest proceed prosperously and fare well, as thy soul doth
prosperously.

1:3. I was exceedingly glad when the brethren came and gave testimony to
the truth in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.

1:4. I have no greater grace than this, to hear that my children walk in
truth.

No greater grace... that is nothing that gives me greater joy and
satisfaction.

1:5. Dearly beloved, thou dost faithfully whatever thou dost for the
brethren: and that for strangers,

1:6. Who have given testimony to thy charity in the sight of the church.
Whom thou shalt do well to bring forward on their way in a manner worthy
of God:

1:7. Because, for his name they went out, taking nothing of the
Gentiles.

Taking nothing of the Gentiles... These ministers of the gospel are
commended by St. John, who took nothing from the Gentiles, lest they
should seem to preach in order to get money by it.

1:8. We therefore ought to receive such: that we may be fellow helpers
of the truth.

1:9. I had written perhaps to the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to
have the preeminence among them, doth not receive us.

Diotrephes who loveth... This man seemeth to be in power, but not a
friend to the faithful; therefore this part of the letter might be an
admonition to him from the apostle.

1:11. Dearly beloved, follow not that which is evil: but that which is
good. He that doth good is of God: he that doth evil hath not seen God.

1:12. To Demetrius, testimony is given by all, and by the truth itself:
yea and we also give testimony. And thou knowest that our testimony is
true.

1:13. I had many things to write unto thee: but I would not by ink and
pen write to thee.

1:14. But I hope speedily to see thee: and we will speak mouth to mouth.
Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Salute the friends by name.
