1 John 5
5 1Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is begotten of God: and
whosoever loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2Hereby we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and do
3For this is the love of God, that we keep his
commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4For whatsoever is
begotten of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that hath
overcome the world, even our faith.
5And who is he that
overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not
with the water only, but with the water and with the blood.
7And it is
the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is the truth.
there are three who bear witness, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood:
and the three agree in one.
9If we receive the witness of men, the
witness of God is greater: for the witness of God is this, that he hath borne
witness concerning his Son.
10He that believeth on the Son of God hath
the witness in him: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because
he hath not believed in the witness that God hath borne concerning his Son.
11And the witness is this, that God gave unto us eternal life, and this
life is in his Son.
12He that hath the Son hath the life; he that hath
not the Son of God hath not the life.
13These things have I written unto
you, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, even unto you that
believe on the name of the Son of God.
14And this is the boldness which
we have toward him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he
15and if we know that he heareth us whatsoever we ask, we
know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.
16If any man
see his brother sinning a sin not unto death, he shall ask, and God
will give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto
death: not concerning this do I say that he should make request.
unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
18We know that
whosoever is begotten of God sinneth not; but he that was begotten of God
keepeth himself, and the evil one toucheth him not.
19We know that we are
of God, and the whole world lieth in the evil one.
20And we know that the
Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we know him that
is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus
Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
children, guard yourselves from idols.
