New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
18 Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the end of the world has come. 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 These people left our churches because they never really belonged with us; otherwise they would have stayed with us. When they left us, it proved that they do not belong with 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 you are not like that, for the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and all of you know the truth. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.
21 So I am writing to you not because you don't know the truth but because you know the difference between truth and falsehood. 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.
