1 John 3:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

In this (ἐν τούτῳ)

See on 1 John 2:3.

Children of the devil (τέκνα τοῦ διαβόλου)

The only occurrence of the phrase. Compare Acts 13:10, and see John 8:44.

Righteousness

Here the article is wanting, compare 1 John 3:7. Righteousness is regarded, not in its completeness, but as bearing a particular character. It will be interesting to follow out the same distinction between the following words with and without the article: ἀμαρτία sin; ἀγάπη love; ζωή life; ἀλήθεια truth.
