3 John

3 John 1:11

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.



Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.
Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but imitate what is good.

Anyone who does what is good is from God.
The one who practices good exhibiting godly character, moral courage and personal integrity is of God.

Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.

The one who practices or permits or tolerates evil has not seen God.
He has no personal experience with Him and does not know Him at all.

3 John 1:2-4

2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.



Dear friend,

I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

Beloved,

I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health physically, just as I know your soul prospers spiritually.
