      1  He commends Gaius for his piety,
     5  and hospitality,
     7  to true preachers;
     9  complaining of the unkind dealing of ambitious Diotrephes on
        the contrary side;
    11  whose evil example is not to be followed;
    12  and gives special testimony to the good report of Demetrius.

      the possessive pronoun his, in the next verse, becomes
      immediately apparent.  'In a manner worthy of God, and of your
      relations and obligations to Him, and such as He can approve.'

    VERSE 9 
     - who loveth.
      [Ho Philoproteuon] 'who loveth the presidency,' or chief
      place, doubtless in the church, of which Diotrephes was most
      probably an officer; and being one, magnified himself in his
      office: he loved such pre-eminence, and behaved haughtily in
      it.

    VERSE 11 
     - Beloved.
      Beloved, [agapetos <27>,] is in the vocative singular, and
      therefore refers to Gaius.

    - friends.
      Instead of [philoi] and [philous,] friends, an appellation
      used no where else as a mutual address among Christians,
      several MSS. read [adelphos <80> and [adelphotes <81>,]
      brethren.
    
    - Greet.   See on
