King James BibleNew American Standard Bible
1Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.1Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.
2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments.
3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.3For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.4For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith.
5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?5Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.6This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.7For there are three that testify:
8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.8the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.9If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son.
10He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.10The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.
11And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.11And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.12He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
13These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.13These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:14This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.15And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
16If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.16If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this.
17All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.17All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.
18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.18We know that no one who is born of God sins; but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.19We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.20And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.21Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
