New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 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 keep 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 this is the love of God, that we keep 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 overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome 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 he who overcomes the world, but he 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 He who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood.

And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
