1 John 1
1 1That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that
which we have seen with our eyes, that which we beheld, and our hands
handled, concerning the Word of life
2(and the life was manifested, and
we have seen, and bear witness, and declare unto you the life, the eternal
life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us);
3that which we have seen and heard declare we unto you also, that ye also
may have fellowship with us: yea, and our fellowship is with the Father, and
with his Son Jesus Christ:
4and these things we write, that our joy may
be made full.
5And this is the message which we have heard from him and
announce unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we
lie, and do not the truth:
7but if we walk in the light, as he is in the
light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.
8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive
ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9If we confess our sins, he is
faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar,
and his word is not in us.
