These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.
On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.
I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name's sake.
I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.
I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.
These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
