1:9 Diotrephes and Demetrius

9I wrote something to the assembly, but Diotrephes won’t listen to us—he always wants the limelight for himself. 10Because of that, if I do end up coming, I will be reminding him about what he’s been doingrambling on against us with evil talks, and then, not being happy with that, he doesn’t accept other believers and expels them from the assembly then forbids others from accepting them either.

11My dear friend, don’t copy the evil things that others do, just the good things. Anyone who does what is good belongs to God—anyone who does evil things has not seen God.

12Demetrius has been talked about by everyone and even the truth itself speaks. We have also spoken about him, and you know that what we say is true.

9I_wrote something to_the assembly, but the one loving_to_be_first of_them, Diotrefaʸs, not is_accepting us.
10Because_of this, if I_may_come, I_will_be_reminding of_him the works, which he_is_doing, with_messages evil rambling_against us, and not being_sufficed with these things, nor himself is_accepting the brothers, but the ones wishing he_is_forbidding, and from the assembly is_throwing_out them.
11Beloved, not be_imitating the evil, but the good.
The one doing_good of the god is, the one doing_evil not has_seen the god.
12To_Daʸmaʸtrios has_been_attested by all, and by itself the truth, also and we are_testifying, and you_have_known that the testimony of_us true is.
