2 ዮሐንስ 1:1-13

1ሽማግሌው፤

በእውነት ለምወዳት እኔ ብቻ ሳልሆን እውነትን የሚያውቁ ሁሉ ለሚወዷት ለተመረጠችው እመቤትና ለልጆቿ፤ 2በውስጣችን ከሚኖርና ከእኛ ጋር ለዘላለም ከሚሆን እውነት የተነሣ፣ 3ከእግዚአብሔር አብና የአብ ልጅ ከሆነው ከኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጸጋ፣ ምሕረትና ሰላም በእውነትና በፍቅር ከእኛ ጋር ይሆናል።

4ከልጆችሽ አንዳንዶቹ ከአብ በተሰጠን ትእዛዝ መሠረት በእውነት ጸንተው እየሄዱ በማግኘቴ እጅግ ደስ ብሎኛል። 5አሁንም እመቤት ሆይ፤ ከመጀመሪያ የነበረችውን እንጂ አዲስ ትእዛዝ አልጽፍልሽም፤ ይኸውም እርስ በርሳችን እንዋደድ ዘንድ ነው። 6ይህም ፍቅር፤ በትእዛዛቱ መሠረት እንመላለስ ዘንድ ነው። ትእዛዙም ከመጀመሪያ እንደ ሰማችሁት በፍቅር እንድትኖሩ ነው።

7ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ በሥጋ እንደ መጣ የማያምኑ ብዙ አሳቾች ወደ ዓለም ወጥተዋል። እንዲህ ያለ ማንኛውም ሰው አታላይና የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ነው። 8እናንተም የደከማች ሁበትን ዋጋ እንዳታጡ፣ ነገር ግን ሙሉ ሽልማት እንድትቀበሉ ለራሳችሁ ተጠንቀቁ። 9በክርስቶስ ትምህርት የማይኖርና ከትምህርቱ የሚወጣ ሁሉ አምላክ የለውም፤ በክርስቶስ ትምህርት የሚኖር ግን አብም ወልድም አለው። 10ማንም ወደ እናንተ ቢመጣ፣ ይህንንም ትምህርት ባያመጣ በቤታችሁ አትቀበሉት፤ ሰላምም አትበሉት፤ 11የሚቀበለው ሰው፣ የክፉ ሥራው ተባባሪ ይሆናልና።

12የምጽፍላችሁ ብዙ ነገር ነበረኝ፤ ይሁን እንጂ በወረቀትና በቀለም እንዲሆን አልፈልግም፤ ዳሩ ግን ደስታችን ፍጹም ይሆን ዘንድ ወደ እናንተ መጥቼ ፊት ለፊት ላነጋግራችሁ ተስፋ አደርጋለሁ።

13የተመረጠችው የእኅትሽ ልጆች ሰላምታ ያቀርቡልሻል።

2 John 1:1-13

1The elder,

To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth – and not I only, but also all who know the truth – 2because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us for ever:

3Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.

4It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. 5And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. 6And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

7I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8Watch out that you do not lose what we1:8 Some manuscripts you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.

12I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete.

13The children of your sister, who is chosen by God, send their greetings.
