New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness on the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world. 17 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
19 We love because he first loved us. 19 We love because he first loved us.
