1 G1492 Behold [G5628] G4217 , what manner G26 of love G3962 the Father G1325 hath bestowed [G5758] G2254 upon us G2443 , that G2564 we should be called [G5686] G5043 the sons G2316 of God G1223 : therefore G5124 G2889 the world G1097 knoweth [G5719] G2248 us G3756 not G3754 , because G1097 it knew [G5627] G846 him G3756 not.
2 G27 Beloved G3568 , now G2070 are we [G5748] G5043 the sons G2316 of God G2532 , and G5319 it doth G3768 not yet G5319 appear [G5681] G5101 what G2071 we shall be [G5704] G1161 : but G1492 we know [G5758] G3754 that G1437 , when G5319 he shall appear [G5686] G2071 , we shall be [G5704] G3664 like G846 him G3754 ; for G3700 we shall see [G5695] G846 him G2531 as G2076 he is [G5748] .
3 G2532 And G3956 every man G2192 that hath [G5723] G5026 this G1680 hope G1909 in G846 him G48 purifieth [G5719] G1438 himself G2531 , even as G1565 he G2076 is [G5748] G53 pure.
4 G3956 Whosoever G4160 committeth [G5723] G266 sin G4160 transgresseth [G5719] G458 G2532 also G458 the law G2532 : for G266 sin G2076 is [G5748] G458 the transgression of the law.
5 G2532 And G1492 ye know [G5758] G3754 that G1565 he G5319 was manifested [G5681] G2443 to G142 take away [G5661] G2257 our G266 sins G2532 ; and G1722 in G846 him G2076 is [G5748] G3756 no G266 sin.
6 G3956 Whosoever G3306 abideth [G5723] G1722 in G846 him G264 sinneth [G5719] G3756 not G3956 : whosoever G264 sinneth [G5723] G3708 hath G3756 not G3708 seen [G5758] G846 him G3761 , neither G1097 known [G5758] G846 him.
7 G5040 Little children G4105 , let G3367 no man G4105 deceive [G5720] G5209 you G4160 : he that doeth [G5723] G1343 righteousness G2076 is [G5748] G1342 righteous G2531 , even as G1565 he G2076 is [G5748] G1342 righteous.
8 G4160 He that committeth [G5723] G266 sin G2076 is [G5748] G1537 of G1228 the devil G3754 ; for G1228 the devil G264 sinneth [G5719] G575 from G746 the beginning G1519 . For G5124 this purpose G5207 the Son G2316 of God G5319 was manifested [G5681] G2443 , that G3089 he might destroy [G5661] G2041 the works G1228 of the devil.
9 G3956 Whosoever G1080 is born [G5772] G1537 of G2316 God G4160 doth [G5719] G3756 not G266 commit sin G3754 ; for G846 his G4690 seed G3306 remaineth [G5719] G1722 in G846 him G2532 : and G3756 he cannot G1410 [G5736] G264 sin [G5721] G3754 , because G1080 he is born [G5769] G1537 of G2316 God.
10 G1722 In G5129 this G5043 the children G2316 of God G2076 are [G5748] G5318 manifest G2532 , and G5043 the children G1228 of the devil G3956 : whosoever G4160 doeth [G5723] G3361 not G1343 righteousness G2076 is [G5748] G3756 not G1537 of G2316 God G2532 , neither G25 he that loveth [G5723] G3361 not G846 his G80 brother.
11 G3754 For G3778 this G2076 is [G5748] G31 the message G3739 that G191 ye heard [G5656] G575 from G746 the beginning G2443 , that G25 we should love [G5725] G240 one another.
12 G3756 Not G2531 as G2535 Cain G2258 , who was [G5713] G1537 of G4190 that wicked one G2532 , and G4969 slew [G5656] G846 his G80 brother G2532 . And G5484 wherefore G5101 G4969 slew [G5656] G846 he him G3754 ? Because G846 his own G2041 works G2258 were [G5713] G4190 evil G1161 , and G846 his G80 brother's G1342 righteous.
13 G2296 Marvel [G5720] G3361 not G3450 , my G80 brethren G1487 , if G2889 the world G3404 hate [G5719] G5209 you.
14 G1492 We know [G5758] G3754 that G2249 we G3327 have passed [G5758] G1537 from G2288 death G1519 unto G2222 life G3754 , because G25 we love [G5719] G80 the brethren G25 . He that loveth [G5723] G3361 not G80 his brother G3306 abideth [G5719] G1722 in G2288 death.
15 G3956 Whosoever G3404 hateth [G5723] G846 his G80 brother G2076 is [G5748] G443 a murderer G2532 : and G1492 ye know [G5758] G3754 that G3756 no G3956 G443 murderer G2192 hath [G5719] G166 eternal G2222 life G3306 abiding [G5723] G1722 in G846 him.
16 G1722 Hereby G5129 G1097 perceive we [G5758] G26 the love G3754 of God, because G1565 he G5087 laid down [G5656] G846 his G5590 life G5228 for G2257 us G2532 : and G2249 we G3784 ought [G5719] G5087 to lay down [G5721] G5590 our lives G5228 for G80 the brethren.
17 G1161 But G3739 whoso G302 G2192 hath [G5725] G2889 this world's G979 good G2532 , and G2334 seeth [G5725] G846 his G80 brother G2192 have [G5723] G5532 need G2532 , and G2808 shutteth up [G5661] G846 his G4698 bowels G575 of compassion from G846 him G4459 , how G3306 dwelleth [G5719] G26 the love G2316 of God G1722 in G846 him?
18 G3450 My G5040 little children G25 , let us G3361 not G25 love [G5725] G3056 in word G3366 , neither G1100 in tongue G235 ; but G2041 in deed G2532 and G225 in truth.
19 G2532 And G1722 hereby G5129 G1097 we know [G5719] G3754 that G2070 we are [G5748] G1537 of G225 the truth G2532 , and G3982 shall assure [G5692] G2257 our G2588 hearts G1715 before G846 him.
20 G3754 For G1437 if G2257 our G2588 heart G2607 condemn us [G5725] G3754 , G2316 God G2076 is [G5748] G3187 greater G2257 than our G2588 heart G2532 , and G1097 knoweth [G5719] G3956 all things.
21 G27 Beloved G3362 , if G2257 our G2588 heart G2607 condemn [G5725] G2257 us G3362 not G2192 , then have we [G5719] G3954 confidence G4314 toward G2316 God.
22 G2532 And G3739 whatsoever G1437 G154 we ask [G5725] G2983 , we receive [G5719] G3844 of G846 him G3754 , because G5083 we keep [G5719] G846 his G1785 commandments G2532 , and G4160 do [G5719] G701 those things that are pleasing G846 in his G1799 sight.
23 G2532 And G3778 this G2076 is [G5748] G846 his G1785 commandment G2443 , That G4100 we should believe [G5661] G3686 on the name G846 of his G5207 Son G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2532 , and G25 love [G5725] G240 one another G2531 , as G1325 he gave [G5656] G2254 us G1785 commandment.
24 G2532 And G5083 he that keepeth [G5723] G846 his G1785 commandments G3306 dwelleth [G5719] G1722 in G846 him G2532 , and G846 he G1722 in G846 him G2532 . And G1722 hereby G5129 G1097 we know [G5719] G3754 that G3306 he abideth [G5719] G1722 in G2254 us G1537 , by G4151 the Spirit G3739 which G1325 he hath given [G5656] G2254 us.
