|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
14 The way we know we've been transferred from death to life is that we love our brothers and sisters. Anyone who doesn't love is as good as dead.
14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.
