Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Each man that believeth that Jesus is Christ, is born of God; and each man that loveth him that engendered [and each that loveth him that gendereth], loveth him that is born of him. 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 In this thing we know, that we love the children of God, when we love God, and do his commandments. 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 the charity of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments be not heavy [and his commandments be not grievous]. 3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 For all thing that is born of God, overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh 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 he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth 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 This is Jesus Christ, that came by water and blood; not in water only, but in water and blood. And the Spirit is he that witnesseth, that Christ 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 three be, that give witnessing in heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost [For three be, that bear witness in heaven, the Father, the Word, or Son, and the Holy Ghost]; and these three be one. 7 For there are three that testify:
8 And three be, that give witnessing in earth, the Spirit, water, and blood; and these three be one. 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we receive the witnessing of men, the witnessing of God is more; for this is the witnessing of God, that is more, for he witnessed of 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 He that believeth in the Son of God, hath the witnessing of God in him. He that believeth not to the Son, maketh him a liar; for he believeth not in the witnessing, that God witnessed of 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 witnessing, for God gave to you everlasting life [for God gave to us everlasting 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 He that hath the Son of God, hath also life [He that hath the Son, hath life]; he that hath not the Son of God, hath not life. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I write to you these things, that ye know, that ye have everlasting life, which believe in the name of God's Son. 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 And this is the trust which we have to God [And this is the trust that we have in God], that whatever thing we ask after his will, he shall hear 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 we know, that he heareth us, whatever thing we ask; we know, that we have the askings, that we ask of him [which we ask of him]. 15 And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
16 He that knoweth that his brother sinneth a sin not to death [He that knoweth his brother to sin a sin not to death], ask he, and life shall be given to him that sinneth not to death. There is a sin to death; not for it I say, that any man pray. 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 Each wickedness is sin, and there is [a] sin to death. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.
18 We know, that each man that is born of God, sinneth not; but the generation of God keepeth him, and the wicked toucheth him not. 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 be of God, and all the world is set in evil [and all the world is put in wicked]. 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 came in flesh, and gave to us wit, that we know him very God, and be in the very Son [Jesus] of him [and be in the very Son Jesus of him]. This is very God, and everlasting 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 My little sons, keep ye you from maumets. [Amen.] [Little sons, keep ye you from simulacra, or covetousness. Amen.] 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
