7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess Jesus Christd coming in the flesh. This person is the deceiver and the antichrist! 8 Watch yourselves that you do not lose what we have worked for, but receive a full reward.
9 Everyone who goes too far and does not remain in the teaching of Christ does not have God. The one who remains in the teaching—this person 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 speak a greeting to him, 11 because the one who speaks a greeting to him shares in his evil deeds.
12 Although* I have many things to write to you, I do not want to do so by means of paper and ink, but I hope to be with you and to speak ⌊face to face⌋e, so that yourf joy may be complete. 13 The children of your elect sister greet you.
Or “confess Jesus as Christ coming in the flesh” (see 1 John 4:2)
Here “although” is supplied as a component of the participle (“have”) which is understood as concessive
Literally “mouth to mouth”
Some manuscripts have “our”
