3 John 1:2

I pray (euxomai).
Here only in John's writings. See Romans 9:3.

In all things (peri pantwn).
To be taken with euodoustai and like peri in 1 Corinthians 16:1, "concerning all things."

Thou mayest prosper (se euodoustai).
Infinitive in indirect discourse (object infinitive) after euxomai, with accusative of general reference se (as to thee). Euodow is old verb (from euodov, eu and odov, prosperous in a journey), to have a good journey, to prosper, in LXX, in N.T. only this verse (twice), 1 Corinthians 16:2; Romans 1:10.

Be in health (ugiainein).
In Paul this word always means sound teaching (1 Timothy 1:10; 6:3), but here and in Luke 5:31; 7:10; 15:27, of bodily health. Brooke wonders if Gaius' health had caused his friends anxiety.

Even as thy soul prospereth (katwv euodoutai sou h psuxh).
A remarkable comparison which assumes the welfare (present middle indicative of euodow) of his soul (psuxh here as the principle of the higher life as in John 12:27, not of the natural life as in Matthew 6:25).
