3 John Chapter 1

3 John 1:1
1:1 The {1} elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the
    truth.

 (1) An example of a Christian greeting.

3 John 1:4
1:4 I have no greater joy than {a} to hear that my children walk
    in truth.

    (a) Than these joys.

3 John 1:5
1:5 Beloved, thou doest {b} faithfully whatsoever thou doest to
    the brethren, and to strangers;

    (b) As becomes a believer and a Christian.

3 John 1:6
1:6 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church:
    whom if thou {c} bring forward on their journey after a
    godly sort, thou shalt do well:

    (c) He commends to Gaius, either those same men whom he had
        entertained before returning to him, about the affairs
        of the Church, or else some other who had similar
        business.

3 John 1:8
1:8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be {d}
    fellowhelpers to the truth.

    (d) That we ourselves may help the preaching of the truth.

3 John 1:9
1:9 {2} I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to
    have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

    (2) Ambition and covetousness, two pestilent sins
        (especially in those who have any church
        responsibilities) are condemned in Diotrephes.

3 John 1:11
1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is
     good.  He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil
     hath not {e} seen God.

     (e) Has not known God.
