3 John 1-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

The elder man to Gaius, most dear brother [most dear], whom I love in truth.

Most dear brother, of all things I make prayer, that thou enter, and fare wellfully, as thy soul doeth wellfully.[a]

I joyed [full] greatly, for brethren came, and bare witnessing to thy truth, as thou walkest in truth.

I have not more grace of these things, than that I hear that my sons walk in truth.

The Third Epistle of John

He commendeth Gaius for hospitality, 9 and reprehendeth Diotrephes for vainglory: 10 he exhorteth Gaius to continue in well doing: 12 and in the end commendeth Demetrius.

The [a]Elder unto the beloved Gaius whom I love in the truth.

Beloved, I wish chiefly that thou prosperedst and faredst well as thy soul prospereth.

For I rejoiceth greatly when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, how thou walkest in the truth.

I have no greater joy than [b]these, that is, to hear that my sons walk in verity.
