4 The one who says, "4I have come to 5know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a 6liar, and 7the truth is not in him;
5 but whoever * 8keeps His word, in him the 9love of God has truly been perfected. 10By this we know that we are in Him:
6 the one who says he 11abides in Him 12ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.
