First John 3


3:1 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.
3:2 Beloved, now are we 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.
3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself,
 even as he is pure.
3:4 Whoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin
 is the transgression of the law.
3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;
 and in him is no sin.
3:6 Whoever abideth in him sinneth not: whoever sinneth hath not
 seen him, neither known him.
3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth
 righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil
 sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was
 manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
3:9 Whoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed
 remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children
 of the devil: whoever doeth not righteousness is not of God,
 neither he that loveth not his brother.
3:11 For this is the message that ye have heard from the
 beginning, that we should love one another.
3:12 Not as Cain, [who] was of that wicked one, and slew his
 brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were
 evil, and his brother's righteous.
3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we
 love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother, abideth in
 death.
3:15 Whoever hateth his brother, is a murderer: and ye know that
 no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
3:16 By this we perceive the love [of God], because he laid down
 his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the
 brethren.
3:17 But he who hath this world's good, and seeth his brother
 have need, and shutteth up his bowels [of compassion] from him,
 how dwelleth the love of God in him?
3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in
 tongue, but in deed and in truth.
3:19 And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall
 assure our hearts before him.
3:20 For if our heart condemneth us, God is greater than our
 heart, and knoweth all things.
3:21 Beloved, if our heart doth not condemn us, [then] have we
 confidence towards God.
3:22 And whatever we ask, we receive from him, because we keep
 his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his
 sight.
3:23 And this is his commandment; That we should believe on the
 name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave
 us commandment.
3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments, dwelleth in him, and
 he in him. And by this we know that he abideth in us, by the
 Spirit which he hath given us.
