11My littlechildren, I am 2writingthesethings to you so that you may not sin. And ifanyonesins, 3we have an a4Advocate with the Father, JesusChrist the righteous;
and He Himself is 5the bpropitiation for our sins; and not for oursonly, but also6for those of the wholeworld.
37By this we know that we have come to 8know Him, if we 9keep His commandments.
The one who says, "10I have come to 11know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a 12liar, and 13the truth is not in him;
but whoever14keeps His word, in him the 15love of God has truly been perfected. 16By this we know that we are in Him:
the one who says he 17abides in Him 18oughthimself to walk in the samemanner as He walked.
