1 John 5
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Everyone who is believing that Jesus is the Christ has been begotten of God, and everyone who is loving Him who begot, also loves him who is begotten of Him. 2In this we know that we love the children of God, when we may love God and may keep His commands; 3for this is the love of God, that we may keep His commands, and His commands are not burdensome; 4because everyone who is begotten of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcame the world—our faith.

5Who is he who is overcoming the world, if not he who is believing that Jesus is the Son of God? 6This One is He who came through water and blood—Jesus the Christ, not in water only, but in the water and the blood; and the Spirit is the [One] testifying, because the Spirit is the truth, 7because [there] are three who are testifying [[in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one; 8and [there] are three who are testifying in the earth]]: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood, and the three are into the one.

9If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, because this is the testimony of God that He has testified concerning His Son. 10He who is believing in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; he who is not believing God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has testified concerning His Son; 11and this is the testimony, that God gave continuous life to us, and this life is in His Son; 12he who is having the Son has life; he who is not having the Son of God does not have life.

13I wrote these things to you who are believing in the Name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have continuous life, and that you may believe in the Name of the Son of God. 14And this is the boldness that we have toward Him, that if we may ask anything according to His will, He hears us, 15and if we have known that He hears us, whatever we may ask, we have known that we have the requests that we have requested from Him.

16If anyone may see his brother sinning a sin [that is] not to death, he will ask, and He will give life to him—to those not sinning to death; there is sin to death—I do not say that he may ask concerning it; 17all unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin [that is] not to death.

18We have known that everyone who has been begotten of God does not sin, but He who was begotten of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him; 19we have known that we are of God, and the whole world lies [under the power] of the evil [one]; 20but we have known that the Son of God has come, and has given us a mind that we may know Him who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ; this One is the true God and the continuous Life!

21Little children, guard yourselves from idols! Amen.
