1 John 5:13-21

Our Assurance of Eternal Life

13 These [things] I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life.
14 And this is the confidence that we have before him: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
15 And if we know that he hears us [in] whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.
16 If anyone should see his brother sinning a sin not [leading] to death, he should ask, and he will grant life to him, to those who sin not [leading] to death. ([There] is a sin [leading] to death; I do not say that he should ask about that.
17 All unrighteousness is sin, and [there] is a sin not [leading] to death.)
18 We know that everyone who is fathered by God does not sin, but the one fathered by God, he protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in [the power of] the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, in order that we may know the one who is true, and we are in the one who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This one is the true God and eternal life.
21 Little children, guard yourselves from idols.
