4 You are from God, 1little children, and 2have overcome them; because 3greater is He who is in you than 4he who is in the world.
5 5They are from the world; therefore * they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.
6 6We are from God; 7he who knows God listens to us; 8he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know 9the spirit of truth and 10the spirit of error.
