14This is 4the confidencewhich we haveabefore Him, that, 5if we askanythingaccording to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, 6we know that we have the requestswhich we have asked from Him.
16Ifanyonesees his brotherbcommitting a sin not leading to death, 7he shall ask and cGod will for him givelife to those who commitsin not leading to death. 8There is a sin leading to death; 9I do not say that he should makerequest for this.
1710Allunrighteousness is sin, and 11there is a sin not leading to death.
1812We know that 13noone who is dborn of Godsins; but He who was eborn of God14keeps him, and 15the evilone does not 16touch him.
1917We know that 18we are of God, and that 19the wholeworldlies in the power of the evilone.
And 20we know that 21the Son of Godhascome, and has 22given us understandingso that we may know23Him who is true; and we 24are in Him who is true, in His SonJesusChrist. 25This is the trueGod and 26eternallife.
