If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may 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. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
