New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. 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, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. 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 who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 10 Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.
11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has 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.
