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.

3 John 1-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He is glad of Gaius, that he walks in the truth. He exhorts them to be loving to the poor Christians in their persecution, and speaks of the unkind dealing of Diotrephes, and the good report of Demetrius.

The elder to the beloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.

Beloved, I wish in all things that you prospered and fared well, even as your soul prospers. I rejoiced greatly when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, how you walk in truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

The elder,

To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the 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. It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
