New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
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 bears witness, because the Spirit is 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 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 7 For there are three that testify:
8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of 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 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of 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.
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 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.
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
