Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
17 In this is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence for 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 he who fears is not perfected 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.
