John Chapter 2
1 My little childrenthese things write I unto youthat ye sinnot. And if any man sinwe have an advocate with the Father Jesus Christ the righteous
2 And he is the propitiation for our sinsand not for our sonlybut also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know himif we keep hiscommandments.
4 He that saithI know himand keepeth not his commandmentsis a liarand the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his wordin him verily is the love of Godperfectedhereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walkeven as he walked.
7 BrethrenI write no new commandment unto youbut an oldcommandment which ye had from the beginning. The oldcommandment is the word which ye have heard from thebeginning.
8 Againa new commandment I write unto youwhich thing is truein him and in youbecause the darkness is pastand the truelight now shineth.
9 He that saith he is in the lightand hateth his brotherisin darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the lightand there isnone occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darknessand walketh indarknessand knoweth not whither he goethbecause thatdarkness hath blinded his eyes.
12 I write unto youlittle childrenbecause your sins areforgiven you for his name s sake.
13 I write unto youfathersbecause ye have known him that isfrom the beginning. I write unto youyoung menbecause yehave overcome the wicked one. I write unto youlittlechildrenbecause ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto youfathersbecause ye have known himthat is from the beginning. I have written unto youyoungmenbecause ye are strongand the word of God abideth inyouand ye have overcome the wicked one.
15 Love not the worldneither the things that are in the world.If any man love the worldthe love of the Father is not inhim.
16 For all that is in the worldthe lust of the fleshand thelust of the eyesand the pride of lifeis not of the Fatherbut is of the world.
17 And the world passeth awayand the lust thereofbut he thatdoeth the will of God abideth for ever.
18 Little childrenit is the last timeand as ye have heardthat antichrist shall comeeven now are there manyantichristswhereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from usbut they were not of usfor if theyhad been of usthey would no doubt have continued with usbut they went outthat they might be made manifest that theywere not all of us.
20 But ye have an unction from the Holy Oneand ye know allthings.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truthbutbecause ye know itand that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the ChristHeis antichristthat denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Sonthe same hath not the Fatherhethat acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
24 Let that therefore abide in youwhich ye have heard from thebeginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginningshall remain in youye also shall continue in the Sonand inthe Father.
25 And this is the promise that he hath promised useven eternallife.
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them thatseduce you.
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth inyouand ye need not that any man teach youbut as the sameanointing teacheth you of all thingsand is truthand is nolieand even as it hath taught youye shall abide in him.
28 And nowlittle childrenabide in himthatwhen he shallappearwe may have confidenceand not be ashamed before himat his coming.
29 If ye know that he is righteousye know that every one thatdoeth righteousness is born of him.
