1 John 5:13 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Have I written (ἔγραψα)

Lit., I wrote. John speaks as looking back over his Epistle and recalling the aim with which he wrote. See on 1 John 2:13.

May know (εἰδῆτε)

Not perceive (γινώσκειν), but know with settled and absolute knowledge. See on John 2:24.

Ye have eternal life (ζωὴν ἔχετε αἰώνιον)

The Greek order is peculiar, "ye may know that life ye have eternal." The adjective eternal is added as an after-thought. So Westcott: "that ye have life - yes, eternal life."

Unto you that believe

In the A.V., these words follow have I written. The Rev. follows the Greek order. The words, like eternal, above, are added as an after-thought, defining the character of the persons addressed.

On the name (εἰς τὸ ὄνομα)

See on John 2:23; see on John 1:12.
