1 G27 Beloved, G3361 [2not G3956 3every G4151 4spirit G4100 1believe], G235 but G1381 distinguish G3588 the G4151 spirits, G1487 if G1537 [2of G3588 G2316 3God G1510.2.3 1 they are]! G3754 for G4183 many G5578 false prophets G1831 have gone forth G1519 into G3588 the G2889 world.
2 G1722 By G3778 this G1097 you know G3588 the G4151 spirit G3588 G2316 of God -- G3956 every G4151 spirit G3739 which G3670 acknowledges G* Jesus G5547 Christ G1722 [2in G4561 3flesh G2064 1having come G1537 5of G3588 G2316 6God G1510.2.3 4is].
3 G2532 And G3956 every G4151 spirit G3739 which G3361 does not G3670 acknowledge G3588 G* Jesus G5547 Christ G1722 [2in G4561 3flesh G2064 1having come G1537 5of G3588 G2316 6God G3756 4is not]. G1510.2.3 G2532 And G3778 this G1510.2.3 is G3588 the thing G3588 of the G500 antichrist, G3739 which G191 you heard G3754 that G2064 it comes, G2532 and G3568 [2now G1722 3in G3588 4the G2889 5world G1510.2.3 1is] G2235 already.
4 G1473 You G1537 [2of G3588 G2316 3God G1510.2.5 1are], G5040 sons, G2532 and G3528 have overcome G1473 them; G3754 for G3173 greater G1510.2.3 is G3588 the one G1722 in G1473 you, G2228 than G3588 the one G1722 in G3588 the G2889 world.
5 G1473 They G1537 [2of G3588 3the G2889 4world G1510.2.6 1are]; G1223 because of G3778 this G1537 [2of G3588 3the G2889 4world G2980 1they speak], G2532 and G3588 the G2889 world G1473 hears them. G191
6 G1473 We G1537 [2of G3588 G2316 3God G1510.2.4 1are]; G3588 the one G1097 knowing G3588 G2316 God, G191 hears G1473 us; G3739 the one who G3756 is not G1510.2.3 G1537 of G3588 G2316 God, G3756 does not G191 hear G1473 us. G1537 By G3778 this G1097 we know G3588 the G4151 spirit G3588 of the G225 truth G2532 and G3588 the G4151 spirit G3588 of the G4106 delusion.
7 G27 Beloved, G25 we should love G240 one another, G3754 for G3588 G26 love G1537 [2of G3588 G2316 3God G1510.2.3 1is]; G2532 and G3956 every one G3588 G25 loving G1537 [2of G3588 G2316 3God G1080 1is engendered], G2532 and G1097 knows G3588 G2316 God.
8 G3588 The one G3361 not G25 loving G3756 does not G1097 know G3588 G2316 God, G3754 for G3588 G2316 God G26 is love. G1510.2.3
9 G1722 In G3778 this G5319 was made manifest G3588 the G26 love G3588 G2316 of God G1722 in G1473 us, G3754 that G3588 G5207 his son, G1473 G3588 the G3439 only born, G649 God sent G3588 G2316 G1519 into G3588 the G2889 world, G2443 that G2198 we should live G1223 through G1473 him.
10 G1722 In G3778 this G1510.2.3 is G3588 the G26 love, G3756 not G3754 that G1473 we G25 loved G3588 G2316 God, G235 but G3754 that G1473 he G25 loved G1473 us, G2532 and G649 sent G3588 G5207 his son G1473 G2434 as an atonement G4012 for G3588 G266 our sins. G1473
11 G27 Beloved, G1487 if G3779 thus G3588 G2316 God G25 loved G1473 us, G2532 also G1473 we G3784 ought G240 [2one another G25 1to love].
12 G2316 [3God G3762 1No one G4455 4at any time G2300 2has seen]. G1437 If G25 we should love G240 one another, G3588 G2316 God G1722 [2in G1473 3us G3306 1abides], G2532 and G3588 G26 his love G1473 G5048 has been perfected G1510.2.3 G1722 in G1473 us.
13 G1722 By G3778 this G1097 we know G3754 that G1722 in G1473 him G3306 we abide, G2532 and G1473 he G1722 in G1473 us -- G3754 that G1537 of G3588 the G4151 spirit G1473 of him G1325 he has given G1473 to us.
14 G2532 And G1473 we G2300 have seen, G2532 and G3140 we bear witness G3754 that G3588 the G3962 father G649 has sent G3588 the G5207 son G4990 as deliverer G3588 of the G2889 world.
15 G3739 Who G302 ever G3670 should acknowledge G3754 that G* Jesus G1510.2.3 is G3588 the G5207 son G3588 G2316 of God, G3588 G2316 God G1722 [2in G1473 3him G3306 1abides], G2532 and G1473 he G1722 in G3588 G2316 God.
16 G2532 And G1473 we G1097 have known G2532 and G4100 have believed G3588 the G26 love G3739 which G2192 God has G3588 G2316 G1722 for G1473 us. G* G2316 God G26 is love; G1510.2.3 G2532 and G3588 the one G3306 abiding G1722 in G3588 the G26 love, G1722 [2in G3588 G2316 3God G3306 1abides], G2532 and G3588 G2316 God G1722 in G1473 him.
17 G1722 In G3778 this G5048 [3has been perfected G3588 1the G26 2love] G3326 with G1473 us, G2443 that G3954 [2confidence G2192 1we should have] G1722 in G3588 the G2250 day G3588 of the G2920 judgment; G3754 for G2531 as G1565 that one G1510.2.3 is, G2532 also G1473 we G1510.2.4 are G1722 in G3588 G2889 this world. G3778
18 G5401 Fear G3756 is not G1510.2.3 G1722 in G3588 the G26 love, G235 but G3588 the G5046 perfect G26 love G1854 [3outside G906 1casts G3588 G5401 2fear]; G3754 for G3588 G5401 fear G2851 [2punishment G2192 1holds], G3588 and the one G1161 G5399 fearing G3756 has not G5048 been made perfect G1722 in G26 love.
20 G1437 If G5100 anyone G2036 should say G3754 that, G25 I love G3588 G2316 God, G2532 and G3588 G80 [2his brother G1473 G3404 1should detest], G5583 he is a liar. G1510.2.3 G3588 For the one G1063 G3361 not G25 loving G3588 G80 his brother, G1473 G3739 whom G3708 he has seen, G3588 G2316 [4God G3739 5whom G3756 6he has not G3708 7seen G4459 1how G1410 2is he able G25 3to love]?
