[This is from] “the old man”(*) [and is written] to the chosen lady and her children, those whom I truly love. It’s not just me, but all those who know the truth [love you]. [We love you] because of that truth that is currently in us and will remain with us forever.
[I pray that] grace, mercy, and peace will be with us in truth and love – [the grace, mercy, and peace] which is from God the Father, and Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son. (2 John 1-3)

Another translation for comparison:
The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all who know the truth, because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy, and peace will[ be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love. (2 John 1-3 ESV)
