New International Version
This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence:
King James Bible
And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
Darby Bible Translation
And hereby we shall know that we are of the truth, and shall persuade our hearts before him --
World English Bible
And by this we know that we are of the truth, and persuade our hearts before him,
Young's Literal Translation
and in this we know that of the truth we are, and before Him we shall assure our hearts,
1 John 3:19 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Hereby we know that we are of the truth - That we have the true religion of the Lord Jesus, and shall assure our hearts - be persuaded in our consciences, that we have the truth as it is in Jesus; as no man can impose upon himself by imagining he loves when he does not: he may make empty professions to others, but if he loves either God or man, he knows it because he feels it; and love unfelt is not love, it is word or tongue. This the apostle lays down as a test of a man's Christianity, and it is the strongest and most infallible test that can be given. He that loves feels that he does love; and he who feels that he loves God and man has true religion; and he who is careful to show the fruits of this love, in obedience to God and humane acts to man, gives others the fullest proof that he has the loving mind that was in Jesus.

And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." Let us consider this noble text, and see something, at least, of what it has to tell us. It is, like all God's messages, all God's laws, ay, like God's world in which we live and breathe, …

If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
