1 John 4

ESV 1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. NIV 1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. ESV 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, NIV 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, ESV 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. NIV 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. ESV 4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. NIV 4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. ESV 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. NIV 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. ESV 6 We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. NIV 6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. ESV 7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. NIV 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. ESV 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. NIV 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. ESV 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. NIV 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. ESV 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. NIV 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. ESV 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. NIV 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. ESV 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. NIV 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. ESV 13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. NIV 13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. ESV 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. NIV 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. ESV 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. NIV 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. ESV 16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. NIV 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. ESV 17 By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. NIV 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. ESV 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. NIV 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ESV 19 We love because he first loved us. NIV 19 We love because he first loved us. ESV 20 If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. NIV 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. ESV 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. NIV 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
