1 John 1
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with
our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word
2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that
eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us;
3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have
fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus
4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is
light and in Him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not
practice the truth.
7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from every sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us.
