Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 My little sons, I write to you these things, that ye sin not. But if any man sinneth, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ [just], 1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
2 and he is the forgiveness for our sins; and not only for our sins [and he is helping for our sins; soothly not only for ours], but also for the sins of all the world. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And in this thing we know, that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 3 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands.
4 He that saith that he knoweth God, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and truth is not in him. 4 The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But the charity of God is perfect verily in him, that keepeth his word [Forsooth who keepeth his word, verily in him is perfect charity]. In this thing we know, that we be in him, if we be perfect in him. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:
6 He that saith, that he dwelleth in him, he oweth to walk, as he walked. 6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
7 Most dear brethren, I write to you, not a new commandment, but the old commandment, that ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word, that ye heard. 7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard.
8 Again I write to you a new commandment, that is true both in him and in you; for darknesses be passed, and very light shineth now [and very light now shineth]. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9 He that saith, that he is in light, and hateth his brother, is in darknesses yet [is in darkness till to yet]. 9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
10 He that loveth his brother, dwelleth in light, and cause of stumbling is not in him [and offence is not in him]. 10 Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.
11 But he that hateth his brother, is in darknesses, and wandereth in darknesses, and knoweth not whither he goeth; for darknesses have blinded his eyes. 11 But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.
12 Little sons, I write to you, that your sins be forgiven to you for his name. 12 I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
13 Fathers, I write to you, for ye have known him, that is from the beginning. Young men, I write to you, for ye have overcome the wicked. I write to you, young children [I write to you, infants, or young children], for ye have known the Father. 13 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father.
14 I write to you, brethren, for ye have known him, that is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, for ye be strong, and the word of God dwelleth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked. 14 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
15 Do not ye love the world, nor those things that be in the world [neither those things that be in the world]. If any man loveth the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. 15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all thing that is in the world, is covetousness of flesh, and covetousness of eyes, and pride of life, which is not of the Father, but it is of the world. 16 For everything in the world--the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does--comes not from the Father but from the world.
17 And the world shall pass, and the covetousness of it; but he that doeth the will of God, dwelleth without end [dwelleth into without end]. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
18 My little sons, the last hour is; and as ye have heard, that antichrist cometh, now many antichrists be made; wherefore we know [whereof we know], that it is the last hour. 18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.
19 They went forth from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they had dwelt with us; but that they be known, that they be not all of us [but that they be known, that they be not of us]. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But ye have anointing of the Holy Ghost, and know all things. [But ye have unction of the Holy Ghost, and know all things.] 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.
21 I wrote not to you, as to men that know not the truth, but as to men that know it, and for each lying is not of truth. 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.
22 Who is a liar, but this that denieth that Jesus is not Christ? This is antichrist, that denieth the Father, and the Son. 22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist--he denies the Father and the Son.
23 For each that denieth the Son, hath not the Father; but he that acknowledgeth the Son, hath also the Father. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 That thing that ye heard at the beginning, dwell it in you [That thing that ye heard from the beginning, dwell in you]; for if that thing dwelleth in you [for if it shall dwell in you], which ye heard at the beginning, [and] ye shall dwell in the Son and in the Father. 24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise, that he promised to us everlasting life. 25 And this is what he promised us--even eternal life.
26 I wrote these things to you, of them that deceive you, 26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.
27 and that the anointing which ye received of him, dwell in you. And ye have not need, that any man teach you, but as his anointing teacheth you of all things, and it is true, and it is not lying; and as he taught you, dwell ye in him. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him.
28 And now, ye little sons, dwell ye in him, that when he shall appear, we have trust, and be not confounded of him in his coming. 28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
29 If ye know that he is just, know ye that also each that doeth rightwiseness, is born of him. 29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
