New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; 7 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.
8 the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.
9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
