1 G1492 [G5628] Behold G4217 , what manner G26 of love G3962 the Father G1325 [G5758] hath bestowed G2254 upon us G2443 , that G2564 [G5686] we should be called G5043 the sons G2316 of God G1223 G5124 : therefore G2889 the world G1097 [G5719] knoweth G2248 us G3756 not G3754 , because G1097 [G5627] it knew G846 him G3756 not.
2 G27 Beloved G3568 , now G2070 [G5748] are we G5043 the sons G2316 of God G2532 , and G5319 0 it doth G3768 not yet G5319 [G5681] appear G5101 what G2071 [G5704] we shall be G1161 : but G1492 [G5758] we know G3754 that G1437 , when G5319 [G5686] he shall appear G2071 [G5704] , we shall be G3664 like G846 him G3754 ; for G3700 [G5695] we shall see G846 him G2531 as G2076 [G5748] he is.
3 G2532 And G3956 every man G2192 [G5723] that hath G5026 this G1680 hope G1909 in G846 him G48 [G5719] purifieth G1438 himself G2531 , even as G1565 he G2076 [G5748] is G53 pure.
4 G3956 Whoever G4160 [G5723] committeth G266 sin G4160 G458 0 [G5719] transgresseth G2532 also G458 the law G2532 : for G266 sin G2076 [G5748] is G458 the transgression of the law.
5 G2532 And G1492 [G5758] ye know G3754 that G1565 he G5319 [G5681] appeared G2443 to G142 [G5661] take away G2257 our G266 sins G2532 ; and G1722 in G846 him G2076 [G5748] is G3756 no G266 sin.
6 G3956 Whoever G3306 [G5723] abideth G1722 in G846 him G264 [G5719] sinneth G3756 not G3956 : whoever G264 [G5723] sinneth G3708 0 hath G3756 not G3708 [G5758] seen G846 him G3761 , neither G1097 [G5758] known G846 him.
7 G5040 Little children G4105 0 , let G3367 no man G4105 [G5720] deceive G5209 you G4160 [G5723] : he that doeth G1343 righteousness G2076 [G5748] is G1342 righteous G2531 , even as G1565 he G2076 [G5748] is G1342 righteous.
8 G4160 [G5723] He that committeth G266 sin G2076 [G5748] is G1537 of G1228 the devil G3754 ; for G1228 the devil G264 [G5719] sinneth G575 from G746 the beginning G1519 . For G5124 this purpose G5207 the Son G2316 of God G5319 [G5681] appeared G2443 , that G3089 [G5661] he might destroy G2041 the works G1228 of the devil.
9 G3956 Whoever G1080 [G5772] is born G1537 of G2316 God G4160 [G5719] doth G3756 not G266 commit sin G3754 ; for G846 his G4690 seed G3306 [G5719] remaineth G1722 in G846 him G2532 : and G3756 G1410 [G5736] he cannot G264 [G5721] sin G3754 , because G1080 [G5769] he is born G1537 of G2316 God.
10 G1722 In G5129 this G5043 the children G2316 of God G2076 [G5748] are G5318 revealed G2532 , and G5043 the children G1228 of the devil G3956 : whoever G4160 [G5723] doeth G3361 not G1343 righteousness G2076 [G5748] is G3756 not G1537 of G2316 God G2532 , neither G25 [G5723] he that loveth G3361 not G846 his G80 brother.
11 G3754 For G3778 this G2076 [G5748] is G31 the message G3739 that G191 [G5656] ye have heard G575 from G746 the beginning G2443 , that G25 [G5725] we should love G240 one another.
12 G3756 Not G2531 as G2535 Cain G2258 [G5713] , who was G1537 of G4190 that wicked one G2532 , and G4969 [G5656] killed G846 his G80 brother G2532 . And G5484 G5101 why G4969 [G5656] did he kill G846 him G3754 ? Because G846 his own G2041 works G2258 [G5713] were G4190 evil G1161 , and G846 his G80 brother's G1342 righteous.
13 G2296 [G5720] Marvel G3361 not G3450 , my G80 brethren G1487 , if G2889 the world G3404 [G5719] hate G5209 you.
14 G1492 [G5758] We know G3754 that G2249 we G3327 [G5758] have passed G1537 from G2288 death G1519 to G2222 life G3754 , because G25 [G5719] we love G80 the brethren G25 [G5723] . He that loveth G3361 not G80 his brother G3306 [G5719] abideth G1722 in G2288 death.
15 G3956 Whoever G3404 [G5723] hateth G846 his G80 brother G2076 [G5748] is G443 a murderer G2532 : and G1492 [G5758] ye know G3754 that G3756 G3956 no G443 murderer G2192 [G5719] hath G166 eternal G2222 life G3306 [G5723] abiding G1722 in G846 him.
16 G1722 By G5129 this G1097 [G5758] we perceive G26 the love G3754 of God, because G1565 he G5087 [G5656] laid down G846 his G5590 life G5228 for G2257 us G2532 : and G2249 we G3784 [G5719] ought G5087 [G5721] to lay down G5590 our lives G5228 for G80 the brethren.
17 G1161 But G3739 G302 he who G2192 [G5725] hath G2889 this world's G979 good G2532 , and G2334 [G5725] seeth G846 his G80 brother G2192 [G5723] have G5532 need G2532 , and G2808 [G5661] shutteth up G846 his G4698 compassions G575 from G846 him G4459 , how G3306 [G5719] dwelleth G26 the love G2316 of God G1722 in G846 him?
18 G3450 My G5040 little children G25 0 , let us G3361 not G25 [G5725] love G3056 in word G3366 , neither G1100 in tongue G235 ; but G2041 in deed G2532 and G225 in truth.
19 G2532 And G1722 by G5129 this G1097 [G5719] we know G3754 that G2070 [G5748] we are G1537 of G225 the truth G2532 , and G3982 [G5692] shall assure G2257 our G2588 hearts G1715 before G846 him.
20 G3754 For G1437 if G2257 our G2588 heart G2607 [G5725] condemneth us G3754 , G2316 God G2076 [G5748] is G3187 greater G2257 than our G2588 heart G2532 , and G1097 [G5719] knoweth G3956 all things.
21 G27 Beloved G3362 0 , if G2257 our G2588 heart G3362 doth not G2607 [G5725] condemn G2257 us G2192 [G5719] , then have we G3954 confidence G4314 toward G2316 God.
22 G2532 And G3739 G1437 whatever G154 [G5725] we ask G2983 [G5719] , we receive G3844 from G846 him G3754 , because G5083 [G5719] we keep G846 his G1785 commandments G2532 , and G4160 [G5719] do G701 those things that are pleasing G846 in his G1799 sight.
23 G2532 And G3778 this G2076 [G5748] is G846 his G1785 commandment G2443 , That G4100 [G5661] we should believe G3686 on the name G846 of his G5207 Son G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2532 , and G25 [G5725] love G240 one another G2531 , as G1325 [G5656] he gave G2254 us G1785 commandment.
24 G2532 And G5083 [G5723] he that keepeth G846 his G1785 commandments G3306 [G5719] dwelleth G1722 in G846 him G2532 , and G846 he G1722 in G846 him G2532 . And G1722 by G5129 this G1097 [G5719] we know G3754 that G3306 [G5719] he abideth G1722 in G2254 us G1537 , by G4151 the Spirit G3739 who G1325 [G5656] he hath given G2254 to us.
