Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

約翰二書

我這作長老的寫信給蒙揀選的女士[a]和你的兒女,就是我本著真理所愛的。你們不單是我所愛的,也是一切認識真理的人所愛的。 我們愛你們,因為真理在我們裡面,並且永遠與我們同在。

從父上帝和祂兒子耶穌基督而來的恩典、憐憫和平安也必在真理和愛中與我們同在!

彼此相愛

你的兒女當中有人按照我們從父領受的命令遵行真理,我知道後非常欣慰。 女士啊,我現在勸你,我們大家要彼此相愛。這不是新命令,而是我們從起初就已經領受的命令。 愛就是遵行上帝的命令,這是你們從起初就聽過又當遵行的命令。

提防騙子

因為現在世上有許多騙子出來迷惑人,他們否認耶穌基督曾降世為人。這樣的人是騙子,是敵基督者。 你們要謹慎,好得到完滿的賞賜,免得我們前功盡棄。 誰偏離基督的教導,誰心中就沒有上帝;誰遵守基督的教導,誰就有父和子與他同在。 10 若有人到你們那裡不傳基督的教導,不要請他到家裡,也不要問候他, 11 因為問候他就是與他同流合污。

結語

12 我還有許多事要告訴你們,但不想藉助紙墨,而是希望有機會到你們那裡與你們當面暢談,使我們充滿喜樂。

13 你那蒙揀選之姊妹的兒女問候你。

2 John

Walk According to His Commandments

The elder to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not only I, but also all who know the truth, for the sake of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received commandment to do from the Father. Now I ask you, lady, not as though I were writing to you a new commandment, but the one which we have had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. [a]Anyone who [b]goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.

12 Though I have many things to write to you, I do not want to do so with paper and ink; but I hope to come to you and speak face to face, so that [c]your joy may be made full.

13 The children of your chosen sister greet you.
