1 John 2:9-19 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
9 The one who says he is in the Light and yet 1hates his 2brother is in the darkness until now. 10 3The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But the one who 4hates his brother is in the darkness and 5walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has 6blinded his eyes. 12 I am writing to you, 7little children, because 8your sins have been forgiven you for His name's sake. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him 9who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because 10you have overcome 11the evil one. I have written to you, children, because 12you know the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him 13who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are 14strong, and the 15word of God abides in you, and 16you have overcome the evil one.

Do Not Love the World

15 Do not love 17the world nor the things in the world. 18If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, 19the lust of the flesh and 20the lust of the eyes and 21the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 22The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who 23does the will of God lives forever. 18 Children, 24it is the last hour; and just as you heard that 25antichrist is coming, 26even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 27They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, 28so that ait would be shown that they all are not of us.
