New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. 1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, 3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one that testifies, for the Spirit is the truth. 6 This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7 There are three that testify: 7 For there are three that testify:
8 the Spirit and the water and the blood, and these three agree. 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son. 9 We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.
10 Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony in their hearts. Those who do not believe in God have made him a liar by not believing in the testimony that God has given concerning his Son. 10 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
