Behold,G1492 whatG4217 mannerG4217 of loveG26 the FatherG3962 has bestowedG1325 on us, that we should be calledG2564 the sonsG5043 of God:G2316 thereforeG1223 G5124 the worldG2889 knowsG1097 us not, becauseG3754 it knewG1097 him not.
Beloved,G27 nowG3568 are we the sonsG5043 of God,G2316 and it does not yetG3768 appearG5319 whatG5101 we shall be: but we knowG1492 that, whenG1437 he shall appear,G5319 we shall be likeG3664 him; for we shall seeG3700 him as he is.
And everyG3956 man that hasG2192 thisG5026 hopeG1680 in him purifiesG48 himself,G1438 evenG2531 as he is pure.G53
WhoeverG3956 G3588 commitsG4160 sinG266 transgressesG458 G4160 alsoG2532 the law:G4160 G458 for sinG266 is the transgressionG458 of the law.G4160 G458
And you knowG1492 that he was manifestedG5319 to takeG142 away our sins;G266 and in him is noG3956 G3756 sin.G266
WhoeverG3956 G3588 staysG3306 in him sinsG264 not: whoeverG3956 G3588 sinsG264 has not seenG3708 him, neitherG3761 knownG1097 him.
LittleG5040 children,G5040 let noG3367 manG3367 deceiveG4105 you: he that doesG4160 righteousnessG1343 is righteous,G1342 evenG2531 as he is righteous.G1342
He that commitsG4160 sinG266 is of the devil;G1228 for the devilG1228 sinsG264 from the beginning.G746 For thisG5124 purpose the SonG5207 of GodG2316 was manifested,G5319 that he might destroyG3089 the worksG2041 of the devil.G1228
WhoeverG3956 G3588 is bornG1080 of GodG2316 does not commitG4160 sin;G266 for his seedG4690 remainsG3306 in him: and he cannotG3756 G1410 sin,G264 becauseG3754 he is bornG1080 of God.G2316
In thisG5129 the childrenG5043 of GodG2316 are manifest,G5318 and the childrenG5043 of the devil:G1228 whoeverG3956 G3588 doesG4160 not righteousnessG1343 is not of God,G2316 neither he that lovesG25 not his brother.G80
For thisG846 is the messageG31 that you heardG191 from the beginning,G746 that we should loveG25 oneG240 another.G240
Not as Cain,G2535 who was of that wickedG4190 one, and slewG4969 his brother.G80 And whyG5484 G5101 slewG4969 he him? BecauseG3754 his own worksG2041 were evil,G4190 and his brother'sG80 righteous.G1342
MarvelG2296 not, my brothers,G80 ifG1487 the worldG2889 hateG3404 you.
We knowG1492 that we have passedG3327 from deathG2288 to life,G2222 becauseG3754 we loveG25 the brothers.G80 He that lovesG25 not his brotherG80 staysG3306 in death.G2288
WhoeverG3956 G3588 hatesG3404 his brotherG80 is a murderer:G443 and you knowG1492 that noG3956 G3756 murdererG443 hasG2192 eternalG166 lifeG2222 abidingG3306 in him.
HerebyG1722 G5129 perceiveG1097 we the loveG26 of God, becauseG3754 he laidG5087 down his lifeG5590 for us: and we oughtG3784 to layG5087 down our livesG5590 for the brothers.G80
But whoeverG3739 G302 hasG2192 thisG3588 world'sG2889 good,G979 and seesG2334 his brotherG80 haveG2192 need,G5532 and shutsG2808 up his bowelsG4698 of compassion from him, howG4459 dwellsG3306 the loveG26 of GodG2316 in him?
My littleG5040 children,G5040 let us not loveG25 in word,G3056 neitherG3366 in tongue;G1100 but in deedG2041 and in truth.G225
And herebyG1722 G5129 we knowG1097 that we are of the truth,G225 and shall assureG3982 our heartsG2588 beforeG1715 him.
For ifG1437 our heartG2588 condemnG2607 us, GodG2316 is greaterG3187 than our heart,G2588 and knowsG1097 allG3956 things.
Beloved,G27 ifG1437 our heartG2588 condemnG2607 us not, then haveG2192 we confidenceG3954 towardG4314 God.G2316
And whateverG3739 G1437 we ask,G154 we receiveG2983 of him, becauseG3754 we keepG5083 his commandments,G1785 and doG4160 thoseG3588 things that are pleasingG701 in his sight.G1799
And thisG3778 is his commandment,G1785 That we should believeG4100 on the nameG3686 of his SonG5207 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 and loveG25 oneG240 another,G240 as he gaveG1325 us commandment.G1785
And he that keepsG5083 his commandmentsG1785 dwellsG3306 in him, and he in him. And herebyG1722 G5129 we knowG1097 that he staysG3306 in us, by the SpiritG4151 whichG3739 he has givenG1325 us.
