The First Letter from John
1[1-4] About the Christ, the Word of Life, which was from the beginning, which we’ve heard, and which we’ve seen and looked on with our own eyes, and that our hands have touched; (because the Life was made known to us, and we’ve seen it, and are eye witnesses, and tell you about that Everlasting Life, which was with YAHWEH GOD, and was made known to us;) What we’ve seen and heard we tell to you, so that you also can become one of us: and the truth is, our relationship is with God, and with Yeshua, the Christ of God. And we write this to you, so that you can have complete joy.
[5-10] So this is the Word which we’ve heard from them and that we tell to you, that God is light, and there’s no darkness at all in God. If we say that we know God, and yet live in the darkness of sin, we lie, and don’t act truthfully: But if we walk in the goodness of light, as Christ is in the light, we have a relationship with one another as well, and the blood of Yeshua, the Christ of God, washes out all the stains of our sin. If we say that we don’t sin, we’re only lying to ourselves, and the truth isn’t in us. If we admit our sins, God is faithful and fair in forgiving our sins, and washes us from all our ungodliness. If we say that we haven’t sinned, we call God a liar, and God’s word isn’t in us.
2[1-6] My little children, I write this to you, so that you don’t sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with YAHWEH GOD, Yeshua the Christ who never sinned: Who took the punishment for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And if we do what God’s word says, we know that we know the Christ. Whoever says, I know God, and doesn’t do what God’s word says, is a liar, and the truth isn’t in them. But whoever keeps the Word, God’s love is The truth is, complete in them: by this we know that we’re in God. Whoever says they live in Christ would act like the Christ acted.
[7-17] People of God, I’m not writing a New Word to you, but the same word which you had from the beginning. This same word is the Word which you’ve heard from the beginning. But in the same way, I do write a New Word to you, which is true in Christ and in you: because the darkness of sin is over, and the true light of Christ now shines. Whoever says they’re in the light, and hates someone, is still in darkness even now. Whoever loves others lives in the light, and there’s no reason for them to stumble. But whoever hates another is in the darkness of sin, and lives in that darkness, and doesn’t know where they are going, because that darkness has blinded them to the truth. I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven in Christ’s name. I write to you, parents, because you’ve known Christ, who is from the beginning. I write to you, young people, because you’ve overcome the evil One. I write to you, little children, because you’ve known YAHWEH GOD, as a parent. I’ve written to you, parents, because you’ve known Christ, who is from the beginning. I’ve written to you, young people, because you’re strong, and the Word of God lives in you, and you’ve overcome the evil One. Don’t love the world, or anything that’s in it. If anyone loves the world, God’s love isn’t in them. Because everything that is in the world, every sinful thing you do, and every sinful thing you want, and all your sinful pride, isn’t of God, but is of the world. And the world will come to an end, along with all its wants: but whoever does the will of God will live forever.
[18-29] Little children, the last days are here: and as you’ve heard that the Antichrist will come, even now there are many antichrists; so we know that it’s the last days. They left us, but they weren’t of us, and if they were of us, they would no doubt have stayed with us: but they left, so that it would be plain that all of them weren’t of us. But you’re anointed by the Holy Spirit, and you know everything. I haven’t written to you because you don’t know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. But whoever denies that Yeshua is the Christ is a liar! Whoever denies YAHWEH GOD and Yeshua, the Christ is an antichrist. Whoever denies the Christ doesn’t have God either: (but) whoever accepts the Christ has God also. So let that live in you, which you’ve heard from the beginning. If what you’ve heard from the beginning stays in you, you’ll also stay in the Christ and in God as well. And the promise that the Christ has promised us is everlasting life. I have written this to you about those who lie to you to get you away. But the anointing of the Spirit, which you’ve been given by Christ lives in you, and you don’t need anyone to teach you: but this same Spirit teaches you everything, and is the truth, and is no lie, and Just as it has taught you, you’ll live in Christ. And now, little children, live in Christ Yeshua; so that when the Christ appears, we can be sure of ourselves, and not be ashamed at the coming of the Christ. If you know that Christ is good, you know that everyone who lives a godly lifestyle is born of the Christ.
3[1-12] Look at the love that God has given to us, so that we’re called the children of God: the world doesn’t know us, because it didn’t know God. My loved ones, now we’re the children of God, and though we don’t yet know what we’ll be like, we know that when Yeshua appears, we’ll be like the Christ because we’ll see who the Christ really is. And all those who have this hope in Christ washes themselves, to be as pure as Christ. Whoever is doing sinful things disobeys the Word of God also, because sin is the rebelliousness of the Word of God. And you know that the Christ appeared to take away our sins; and there’s no sin in Christ. Whoever lives in Christ doesn’t keep on sinning: whoever keeps on sinning hasn’t seen Christ and doesn’t know Christ. Little children, let no one mislead you: whoever does goodness is good, Just as Christ is good. Whoever is doing sinful things is of the devil because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this reason, my loved ones, the Child of God was made known, in order to destroy what the devil has done. Whoever is born of God doesn’t keep on sinning because the seed stays in them: and they can’t keep on sinning, because they’re born of God. By this, the children of God, and the children of the devil are made known: those who don’t act with goodness, nor love others isn’t of God. Because to love one another is the message that you heard from the beginning. Not as Cain, who was of that evil One, and killed Able. And why did Cain kill Able? Because Cain’s own actions were evil, and Abel’s actions were good.
[13-24] Don’t be surprised, my children, if the world hates you. We know that we’ve passed from death to life, because we love all Christians. Whoever doesn’t love others lives in death. Whoever hates others is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has everlasting life in them. By this we know God’s love, because the Christ’s life was given for us: and we also ought to give up our lives for all Christians. Whoever has the things of this world, and sees another who has a need, and has no caring for them, how can God’s love be in them? My little children, let’s not love just in the Words of our mouths; but in the truth of our actions. And by this we know that we’re of the truth, and will assure our hearts in Christ. Because if our heart makes us feel guilty, God is greater than our heart, and knows everything. My loved ones, if our heart doesn’t make us feel guilty, then we’re sure in God. And whatever we ask, we’ll get from God, because we do the Word of God, and do what are pleasing in the sight of God. And this is God’s word: that we would believe on the Name of the Child of Yeshua the Christ and love one another, as God told us to. Now whoever obeys the Word of God lives in God, and God lives in them. And we know that God lives in us by the Spirit that God has given us.
4[1-6] My loved ones, don’t believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they’re from God: because many false teachers have gone out into the world. Know the Spirit of God by this: Every spirit that says that Yeshua the Christ has come in a physical body is of God: And every spirit that doesn’t say that Yeshua the Christ has come in a physical body isn’t of God: and this is the spirit of antichrist, which you’ve heard was to come; and even now is already in the world. You’re of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is the God who is in you, than anyone who is in the world. They’re of the world: so they speak from the knowledge of the world, and the world hears them. We’re of God: whoever knows God listens to us; whoever isn’t of God doesn’t listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of wrong.
[7-21] My loved ones, let’s love one another because love is of God; and everyone that loves is born of God, and knows God.  Whoever doesn’t love, doesn’t know God because God is love. In this God’s love toward us was made known, because God sent the only ONE Born of God into the world, that we might live through Yeshua, the Christ. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that God loved us, and sent the Christ to take our place for the punishment of our sins. My loved ones, if God loved us like this, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God lives in us, and God’s love is completed in us. By this we know that we live in God and God in us, because God has given us the Holy Spirit. And we’ve seen and tell others that God sent the Christ to be the Savior of the world. Whoever says that Yeshua is the Child of God, God lives in them, and they live in God. And we’ve known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love; and whoever loves, lives in God, and God in them. In this, our love is completed, that we can have no fear in the day of judgment: because as Christ is, so are we in this world. There’s no fear in love; but complete love puts fear away: because fear has suffering. Whoever has fear doesn’t know love. We love God, because God first loved us. If someone says, I love God, and hates another, they’re a liar because whoever doesn’t love others whom they have seen, how can they love God whom they haven’t seen? And this word we have from God, that those who love God must love others also.
5[1-5] Whoever believes that Yeshua is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loves the One who gave the Christ also loves the Christ, who is born of God. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and obey the Word of God. Because this is God’s love, that we obey the Word of God: and these words aren’t hard. Whoever is born of God overcomes the world: and our faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Whoever believes that Yeshua is the Child of God will overcome the world!
[6-10] This is Yeshua the Christ the One who came by the baptism of water and of blood; not by the baptism of water only, but by water and the suffering of blood. And it’s the Spirit that tells the truth about it, because the Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. And there are three that are truthful witnesses in heaven, YAHWEH GOD , the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are One God. And there are three that are truthful witnesses in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree as One. If we accept the witness of human beings, the witness of God is greater because this is the witness of God who has told us truthfully of the Christ. Those who believe in the Christ of God have the witness in themselves: and those who don’t believe God has made God a liar; because they don’t believe the Word that God gave of the Christ.
[11-15] And this is the Word that God has given to us, everlasting life, and this life is in God’s Christ. Whoever has the Christ has life; and whoever doesn’t have the Christ of God doesn’t have life. I’ve written this to you who believe on the Name of Yeshua, the Child of God; so that you can know that you have everlasting life, and so that you can keep on believing in the Name of the Child of God. And this is how we can be sure that we have the Christ, that is, if we ask anything that is in agreement with God’s will, God will hear us: And if we know that God hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we’ll get what we wanted from God.
[16-21] If anyone sees someone do something which is a sin but doesn’t lead to death, if they’ll ask, God will give them life for those who don’t sin a sin which leads to death. But there’s a sin that leads to death: I am not saying that they should pray for freedom from that kind of sin. All ungodliness is sin: but there’s a sin that doesn’t lead to death. We know that whoever is born of God doesn’t sin this kind of sin; but whoever is born of God has self-control, and that the devil doesn’t touch them. And we know that we’re of God, but the whole world is tempted by evil. And we know that the Child of God has come, and has given us an understanding, that we can know The ONE who is true, and we’re in The ONE who is true, even in God’s Child, Yeshua, the Christ. This is the true God, and everlasting life. Little children, keep yourselves from worshiping anything else. So be it!
The Second Letter from John
1[1-3] From John, the elder, to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not just I, but all those who know the truth, as well; Because of the truth’s sake, which lives in us, and will be with us forever. May grace, mercy, and peace be with you from YAHWEH GOD , and from Yeshua the Christ, the Child of God, in truth and love.
[4-6] I celebrated greatly that I found your children walking in the truth, as we’ve been told by God. And now I beg you, lady, not as a New Word to you, but as a reminder of what we were told from the beginning, that is, that we love one another. Love is to follow Christ’s words. This is the Word that you’ve heard from the beginning, so that you would do it.
[7-11]There are many misleaders in the world, who say that Yeshua, the Christ didn’t come in a physical body. This is a misleader and an antichrist. Be careful, so that we don’t lose what we’ve worked so hard for, but that we get our full reward. Whoever sins, and doesn’t live by the Words of Christ, doesn’t have God. Whoever lives by the Words of Christ, they have both the God we’re from and the Christ. If anyone comes to you, and doesn’t bring Christ’s New Word, don’t take them home, nor welcome them with a blessing of God: Because whoever welcomes and blesses them takes part in their evil ways.
[12-13] I have so much to say to you, I can’t write it all on paper: but I trust I will come to you shortly, and speak face to face, that our joy can be complete. The children of your chosen sister say hello. So be it!
The Third Letter from John
1[1-4] From John, the elder, to my loved One Gaius, whom I love in the truth of Christ. My loved One, I wish more than anything that you can do well and be in good health, just as your soul does well! I celebrated greatly, when the Christians came and told me of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. It’ll be my greatest joy to hear that my children in the faith walk in the truth.
[5-8] My loved ones, whatever you do, do it faithfully for the Christians, and for strangers; Who have told of your love to the church: whom if you send them on their way with this godly action, you do well: Because they went for Christ’s name’s sake, taking nothing from other people. So we ought to accept and provide for them, that we might be coworkers for the truth.
[9-10] I wrote to the church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the most important place among them, won’t accept us. So if I come, I’ll remember what he does, speaking against us with hateful words: and not content with that, he doesn’t accept any of the faith either, and stops those who do, and puts them out of the church.
[11-12] My loved ones, don’t do what is evil, but what is good. Whoever does good is of God: but whoever does evil doesn’t know God. Demetrius has a good reputation with everyone, and the truth itself speaks well of him: yes, and we also say he has a good reputation; and you know that what we speak is true.
[13-14] I had many things to write, but I won’t write to you on paper, but I trust I’ll see you shortly, and we’ll speak face to face. May Christ’s peace be with you. Our friends say hello. Say hello to all my friends by name.
