1 G3450 My G5040 little children, G1125 I G5023 write these things G5213 to you G2443 so that G3361 you may not G264 sin. G2532 G1437 If G5100 anyone G264 sins, G2192 we have G3875 a Counselor G4314 with G3962 the Father, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1342 the righteous.
2 G2532 And G846 he G2076 is G2434 the atoning sacrifice G4012 for G2257 our G266 sins, G1161 and G3756 not G4012 for G2251 ours G3440 only, G235 but G2532 also G4012 for G2889 the G3650 whole G2889 world.
3 G2532 This G5129 is how G1097 we G1097 know G3754 that G1097 we G1097 know G846 him: G1437 if G5083 we keep G846 his G1785 commandments.
4 G3004 One who says, G1097 "I know G846 him," G2532 and G3361 doesn't G5083 keep G846 his G1785 commandments, G2076 is G5583 a liar, G2532 and G225 the truth G3756 isn't G2076 G1722 in G5129 him.
5 G1161 But G3739 whoever G302 G5083 keeps G846 his G3056 word, G2316 God's G26 love G230 has most certainly G5048 been G5048 perfected G1722 in G5129 him. G1722 This is how G1097 we G3754 know that G846 we G2070 are G1722 in G5129 him:
6 G3004 he who says G3306 he remains G1722 in G846 him G3784 ought G1565 himself G2531 also G4043 to walk G2532 just G3779 like G846 he G4043 walked.
7 G80 Brothers, G1125 I write G3756 no G2537 new G1785 commandment G5213 to you, G235 but G1785 an G3820 old G1785 commandment G3739 which G2192 you had G575 from G746 the beginning. G1785 The G3820 old G1785 commandment G2076 is G3056 the word G3739 which G191 you heard G575 from G746 the beginning.
8 G3825 Again, G1125 I write G1785 a G2537 new G1785 commandment G5213 to you, G3739 which G2076 is G227 true G1722 in G846 him G2532 and G1722 in G5213 you; G3754 because G4653 the darkness G3855 is passing G2532 away, and G5457 the G228 true G5457 light G2235 already G5316 shines.
9 G3004 He who says G1511 he is G1722 in G5457 the light G2532 and G3404 hates G846 his G80 brother, G2076 is G1722 in G4653 the darkness G2193 even until G737 now.
10 G25 He who loves G846 his G80 brother G3306 remains G1722 in G5457 the light, G2532 and G2076 there is G3756 no G4625 occasion for stumbling G1722 in G846 him.
11 G1161 But G3404 he who hates G846 his G80 brother G2076 is G1722 in G4653 the darkness, G2532 and G4043 walks G1722 in G4653 the darkness, G2532 and G3756 doesn't G1492 know G4225 where G5217 he is going, G3754 because G4653 the darkness G5186 has blinded G846 his G3788 eyes.
12 G1125 I write G5213 to you, G5040 little children, G3754 because G5213 your G266 sins G863 are forgiven you G1223 for G846 his G3686 name's G1223 sake.
13 G1125 I write G5213 to you, G3962 fathers, G3754 because G1097 you know G575 him who is from G746 the beginning. G1125 I write G5213 to you, G3495 young men, G3754 because G3528 you have overcome G4190 the evil one. G1125 I write G5213 to you, G3813 little children, G3754 because G1097 you know G3962 the Father.
14 G1125 I have written G5213 to you, G3962 fathers, G3754 because G1097 you know G575 him who is from G746 the beginning. G1125 I have written G5213 to you, G3495 young men, G3754 because G2075 you are G2478 strong, G2532 and G3056 the word G1722 of G2316 God G3306 remains G5213 in you, G2532 and G3528 you have overcome G4190 the evil one.
15 G3361 Don't G25 love G2889 the world, G3366 neither G3588 the things G1722 that are in G2889 the world. G1437 If G5100 anyone G25 loves G2889 the world, G1722 the G3962 Father's G26 love G3756 isn't G2076 G2076 in G846 him.
16 G3754 For G3956 all that G1722 is in G2889 the world, G1939 the lust G4561 of the flesh, G2532 the G1939 lust G3788 of the eyes, G2532 and G212 the pride G979 of life, G3756 isn't G2076 G1537 the G3962 Father's, G235 but G2076 is G1537 the G2889 world's.
17 G2532 The G2889 world G3855 is passing away G2532 with G846 its G1939 lusts, G1161 but G4160 he who does G2316 God's G2307 will G3306 remains G1519 G165 forever.
18 G3813 Little children, G2076 these are G5610 the G2078 end G5610 times, G2532 and G2531 as G191 you heard G3754 that G500 the Antichrist G2064 is coming, G2532 even G3568 now G4183 many G500 antichrists G1096 have G3606 arisen. By this G1097 we know G3754 that G2076 it is G5610 the G2078 final G5610 hour.
19 G1831 They went G1537 out from G2257 us, G235 but G2258 they didn't G3756 G1537 belong G2257 to us; G1063 for G1487 if G2258 they had belonged G1537 to G2257 us, G302 they would G3306 have continued G3326 with G2257 us. G235 But G2443 they left, that G5319 they might be revealed G3754 that G3756 none G1537 of G3956 them G1537 belong to G2257 us.
20 G2532 G5210 You G2192 have G5545 an anointing G575 from G40 the Holy One, G2532 and G3956 you all have G1492 knowledge.
21 G1125 I have G3756 not G1125 written G5213 to you G3754 because G3756 you don't G1492 know G225 the truth, G235 but G3754 because G1492 you know G846 it, G2532 and G3754 because G3756 no G3956 G5579 lie G2076 is G1537 of G225 the truth.
22 G5101 Who G2076 is G5583 the liar G1487 but G5101 he who G720 denies G3756 G3754 that G2424 Jesus G2076 is G5547 the Christ? G2076 This is G500 the Antichrist, G3778 he who G720 denies G3962 the Father G2532 and G5207 the Son.
23 G3956 Whoever G720 denies G5207 the Son, G3761 the same doesn't G2192 have G3962 the Father. G3670 He who confesses G5207 the Son G2192 has G3962 the Father G2532 also.
24 G3767 Therefore, G3739 as for you, let that G3306 remain G1722 in G5213 you G3739 which G191 you heard G575 from G746 the beginning. G1437 If G3739 that which G191 you heard G575 from G746 the beginning G3306 remains G1722 in G5213 you, G5210 you G2532 also G3306 will remain G1722 in G5207 the Son, G2532 and G1722 in G5210 the Father.
25 G2532 G3778 This G2076 is G1860 the promise G3739 which G846 he G1861 promised G2254 us, G166 the eternal G2222 life.
26 G5023 These G1125 things I have written G5213 to you G4012 concerning G5209 those who would lead you G4105 astray.
27 G2532 As G5545 for you, the anointing G3739 which G5213 you G2983 received G2983 from G846 him G3306 remains G1722 in G5213 you, G2532 and G3756 you don't G2192 need G5532 G2443 for G5100 anyone G1321 to teach G5209 you. G235 But G5613 as G846 his G5545 anointing G1321 teaches G5209 you G4012 concerning G3956 all things, G2532 and G2076 is G227 true, G2532 and G2076 is G3756 no G5579 lie, G2532 and G2531 even as G1321 it taught G5209 you, G3306 you will remain G1722 in G846 him.
28 G2532 G3568 Now, G5040 little children, G3306 remain G1722 in G846 him, G2443 that G3752 when G5319 he appears, G2192 we may have G3954 boldness, G2532 and G3361 not G153 be ashamed G575 before G846 him G1722 at G846 his G3952 coming.
