3 And everyone who has this 1hope fixed on Him 2purifies himself, just as He is pure.
5 You know that He 4appeared in order to 5take away sins; and 6in Him there is no sin.
6 No * one who abides in Him 7sins; no * one who sins has seen Him or 8knows Him.
7 9Little children, make sure no one 10deceives you; 11the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous;
