3 John 1:10

Therefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he does, speaking against us with malicious words: and not content with that, neither does he himself receive the brethren, and forbids them that would, and casts them out of the church.

Cornelius a Lapide

AD 1637
I will remember his works. Some read, though incorrectly, I will remove his works. Others read, I will mark his works; others, I will judge. Observe S. John"s gentleness in rebuking and correcting. Prating against us with malicious wards, i.e. raising calumnies against, detracting and maligning me. The Greek is φλυαζω̃ν, to trifle, babble, prate. Neither doth he himself receive the brethren, i.e. orthodox Christians. He receives none but the pseudo-Christians of his own party. And those who do receive them he casts out of the Church, both from the place and assembly of the Church, especially the agape and feast after the Eucharist, and also from the company of the faithful by excommunicating them.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
