Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God! Therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself,Œeven as He is pure.
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law, for sin is the transgression of the law.
And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him is no sin.
Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not; whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
Little children, let no man deceive you. He that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.
