New International Version
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
King James Bible

World English Bible

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood--to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished--
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
