See ye what love the Father hath given to us, that children of God we may be called; because of this the world doth not know us, because it did not know Him;
beloved, now, children of God are we, and it was not yet manifested what we shall be, and we have known that if he may be manifested, like him we shall be, because we shall see him as he is;
and every one who is having this hope on him, doth purify himself, even as he is pure.
Every one who is doing the sin, the lawlessness also he doth do, and the sin is the lawlessness,
and ye have known that he was manifested that our sins he may take away, and sin is not in him;
every one who is remaining in him doth not sin; every one who is sinning, hath not seen him, nor known him.
Little children, let no one lead you astray; he who is doing the righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous,
