1 John 5
1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born from God, and everyone who loves Him who begets also loves him who is begotten from Him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments
are not burdensome.
4 For whatever is born from God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has
overcome the world; our faith.
5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is He who came through water and blood; Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by
water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7 For there are three that bear witness in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy
Spirit; and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and
the three are into one.
9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the
testimony of God which He has witnessed about His Son.
10 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; he who does not
believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has
given concerning His Son.
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that
you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the
name of the Son of God.
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to
His will, He hears us.
15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the
petitions that we have asked from Him.
16 If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin not unto death, he shall ask, and He will give
him life for those who commit sin not unto death. There is sin unto death. I do not say
that he should ask about that.
17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not unto death.
18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of
God keeps himself, and the evil does not touch him.
19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that
we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God and eternal life.
21 Little children, keep yourselves away from idols. Amen.
