But 4whoeverhas the world'sgoods, and sees his brother in need and 5closes his aheartbagainst him, 6how does the love of Godabide in him?
187Littlechildren, let us not love with wordor with tongue, but in deed and 8truth.
We will know by this that we are 9of the truth, and will cassure our heartbefore Him
20din whatever our heartcondemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knowsallthings.
2110Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have11confidenceebeforeGod ;
and 12whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we 13keep His commandments and do14the things that are pleasing in His sight.
23This is His commandment, that we f15believe in 16the name of His SonJesusChrist, and loveoneanother, just as 17He gcommanded us.
