11Whoeverbelieves that Jesus is the aChrist is b2born of God, and whoeverloves the cFather3loves the child dborn of Him.
24By this we know that 5we love the children of God, when we loveGod and eobserve His commandments.
For 6this is the love of God, that we 7keep His commandments; and 8His commandments are not burdensome.
For whatever is f9born of God10overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world -our faith.
5Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who 11believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6This is the One who came12by water and blood, JesusChrist; not gwith the wateronly, but hwith the water and iwith the blood. It is 13the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
For there are 14three that testify:
8jthe Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are kin agreement.
915If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that 16He has testifiedconcerning His Son.
The one who believes in the Son of God17has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believeGod has 18made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has givenconcerning His Son.
And the testimony is this, that God has given us 19eternallife, and 20thislife is in His Son.
1221He who has the Sonhas the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
1322Thesethings I have written to you who 23believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have24eternallife.
14This is 25the confidencewhich we havelbefore Him, that, 26if we askanythingaccording to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, 27we know that we have the requestswhich we have asked from Him.
16Ifanyonesees his brothermcommitting a sin not leading to death, 28he shall ask and nGod will for him givelife to those who commitsin not leading to death. 29There is a sin leading to death; 30I do not say that he should makerequest for this.
1731Allunrighteousness is sin, and 32there is a sin not leading to death.
1833We know that 34noone who is oborn of Godsins; but He who was pborn of God35keeps him, and 36the evilone does not 37touch him.
1938We know that 39we are of God, and that 40the wholeworldlies in the power of the evilone.
And 41we know that 42the Son of Godhascome, and has 43given us understandingso that we may know44Him who is true; and we 45are in Him who is true, in His SonJesusChrist. 46This is the trueGod and 47eternallife.
