[1 John 1]
1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard,
which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon,
and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
1:2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen [it], and
bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was
with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you,
that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our
fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be
1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and
declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness
1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in
darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we
have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and
the truth is not in us.
1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to
forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all
1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar,
and his word is not in us.
[1 John 2]
2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that
ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the
Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours
only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.
2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his
2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his
commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of
God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to
walk, even as he walked.
2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old
commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old
commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
2:8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is
true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the
true light now shineth.
2:9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother,
is in darkness even until now.
2:10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and
there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and
walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because
that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
2:12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are
forgiven you for his name's sake.
2:13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him
[that is] from the beginning. I write unto you, young men,
because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you,
little children, because ye have known the Father.
2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known
him [that is] from the beginning. I have written unto you,
young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth
in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not
2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the
Father, but is of the world.
2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he
that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have
heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many
antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if
they had been of us, they would [no doubt] have continued with
us: but [they went out], that they might be made manifest that
they were not all of us.
2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know
2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the
truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the
Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:
[@but@ he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].
2:24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard
from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the
beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the
Son, and in the Father.
2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, [even]
2:26 These [things] have I written unto you concerning them
that seduce you.
2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth
in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same
anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no
lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he
shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before
him at his coming.
2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one
that doeth righteousness is born of him.
[1 John 3]
3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon
us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the
world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet
appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall
appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth
himself, even as he is pure.
3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for
sin is the transgression of the law.
3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;
and in him is no sin.
3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth
hath not seen him, neither known him.
3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth
righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil
sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was
manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his
seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of
3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the
children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not
of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the
beginning, that we should love one another.
3:12 Not as Cain, [who] was of that wicked one, and slew his
brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were
evil, and his brother's righteous.
3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life,
because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother
abideth in death.
3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know
that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
3:16 Hereby perceive we the love [[of God]], because he laid
down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for
3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother
have need, and shutteth up his bowels [of compassion] from him,
how dwelleth the love of God in him?
3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in
tongue; but in deed and in truth.
3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall
assure our hearts before him.
3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our
heart, and knoweth all things.
3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we
confidence toward God.
3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we
keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in
3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on
the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he
gave us commandment.
3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him,
and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the
Spirit which he hath given us.
[1 John 4]
4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits
whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone
out into the world.
4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that
confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is
come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of
antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even
now already is it in the world.
4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the
4:5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world,
and the world heareth them.
4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is
not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth,
and the spirit of error.
4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and
every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because
that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we
might live through him.
4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved
us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins.
4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one
4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one
another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us,
because he hath given us of his Spirit.
4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the
Son [to be] the Saviour of the world.
4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God,
God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to
us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God,
and God in him.
4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have
boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in
4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out
fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made
perfect in love.
4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.
4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is
a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen,
how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
4:21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who
loveth God love his brother also.
[1 John 5]
5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of
God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also
that is begotten of him.
5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we
love God, and keep his commandments.
5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his
commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and
this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our
5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that
believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus
Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is
the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
5:7 For there are three that bear record [[in heaven, the
Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.]]
5:8 [[And there are three that bear witness in earth,]] the
Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in
5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is
greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified
of his Son.
5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in
himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar;
because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us
eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not
the Son of God hath not life.
5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the
name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal
life, [[and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.]]
5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if
we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we
know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin [which is] not unto
death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that
sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say
that he shall pray for it.
5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto
5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but
he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one
toucheth him not.
5:19 [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world
lieth in wickedness.
5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given
us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we
are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This
is the true God, and eternal life.
5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
