RSV 13 I write this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. NIV 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. RSV 14 And this is the confidence which we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. NIV 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. RSV 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him. NIV 15 And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him. RSV 16 If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal; I do not say that one is to pray for that. NIV 16 If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that he should pray about that. RSV 17 All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin which is not mortal. NIV 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death. RSV 18 We know that any one born of God does not sin, but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. NIV 18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him. RSV 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world is in the power of the evil one. NIV 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. RSV 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. NIV 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true--even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. RSV 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. NIV 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
