1 John 4:18
Good News Translation
There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear. So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, because fear has to do with punishment.

Contemporary English Version
A real love for others will chase those worries away. The thought of being punished is what makes us afraid. It shows we have not really learned to love.

Douay-Rheims Bible
Fear is not in charity: but perfect charity casteth out fear, because fear hath sin. And he that feareth is not perfected in charity.

New American Bible
There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love.
