Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent also loves his child. 1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
2 This is how we know that we love God's children when we love God and obey His commands. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands. Now His commands are not a burden, 3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 because whatever has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith. 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 And who is the one who conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 Jesus Christ-He is the One who came by water and blood; not by water only, but by water and by blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 6 This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7 For there are three that testify: 7 For there are three that testify:
8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood-and these three are in agreement. 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we accept the testimony of men, God's testimony is greater, because it is God's testimony that He has given about His Son. 9 We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.
10 (The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. The one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given about His Son.) 10 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 The one who has the Son has life. The one who doesn't have the Son of God does not have life. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
14 Now this is the confidence we have before Him: whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
15 And if we know that He hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked Him for. 15 And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
16 If anyone sees his brother committing a sin that does not bring death, he should ask, and God will give life to him-to those who commit sin that doesn't bring death. There is sin that brings death. I am not saying he should pray about that. 16 If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that he should pray about that.
17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin that does not bring death. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.
18 We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. 18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.
19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one. 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know the true One. We are in the true One-that is, in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true--even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols. 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
