Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God; and every one who loves the Father loves also Him who is the Father's 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 The fact that we love God Himself, and obey His commands, is a proof that we love God's children. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 Love for God means obedience to His commands; and His commands are not irksome. 3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 For every child of God overcomes the world; and the victorious principle which has overcome the world is our faith. 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who but the man that believes that Jesus is the Son of God overcomes the world? 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 Jesus Christ is He who came with water and blood; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. And it is the Spirit who gives testimony-- 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 give testimony-- the Spirit, the water, and the blood; 7 For there are three that testify:
8 and there is complete agreement between these three. 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: for God's testimony consists of the things which He has testified 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 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in his own heart: he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, in that he has refused to accept the testimony which 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 that testimony is to the effect that God has given us the Life of the Ages, and that 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 who has the Son has the Life: he who has not the Son of God has not the 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 all this to you in order that you who believe in the Son of God may know for certain that you already have the Life of the Ages. 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 we have an assured confidence that whenever we ask anything in accordance with His will, He listens to 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 since we know that He listens to us, then whatever we ask, we know that we have the things which we have asked from Him. 15 And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
16 If any one sees a brother man committing a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask and God shall give him life--for those who do not sin unto death. There is such a thing as sin unto death; for that I do not bid him make request. 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 Any kind of wrongdoing is sin; but there is sin which is not unto death. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.
18 We know that no one who is a child of God lives in sin, but He who is God's Child keeps him, and the Evil one cannot 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 children of God, and that the whole world lies in the power 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 know the true One, and are in union with the true One--that is, we are in union with His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and the Life of the Ages. 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 Dear children, guard yourselves from idols. 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
