|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
13 My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God's Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion.
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
