1 John 3:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Little children

See on 1 John 2:1.

Deceive (πλανάτω)

Rev., better, lead astray. See on 1 John 1:8.

Doeth righteousness

See on 1 John 3:4, and compare 1 John 2:29. Note the article τὴν, the righteousness, in its completeness and unity. Not merely doing righteous acts. "In his relation to other men he will do what is just; and in his relation to the gods he will do what is holy; and he who does what is just and holy cannot be other than just and holy" (Plato, "Gorgias," 507).
