1 Dear children of me, these things I write to you, so that not you may sin; and if any one should sin, a helper we have with the Father, Jesus Anointed a just one;
2 and he a propitiation is on account of the sins of us, not on account of the ours but only, but also on account of whole of the world.
3 And by this we know, that we have known him, if the commandment of him we keep.
4 The one saying: I have known him, and the commandments of him not keeping, a liar he is, and in this one the truth not is.
5 Who but may keep of him the word, truly in this one the love of the God has been perfected. By this we know, that in him we are.
6 The one saying in him to abide, is bound, as he walked, also himself thus to walk.
7 Beloved ones, not a commandment new I write to you, but a commandment old, which you had from a beginning; the commandment the old, is the word which you heard from a beginning.
8 Again a commandment new I write to you, which is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing away, and the light the true now shines.
9 The one saying in the light to be, and the brother of himself hating, in the darkness he is till now.
10 The one loving the brother of himself, in the light abides, and a stumblingblock in him not is;
11 the but one hating the brother of himself, in the darkness is, and in the darkness walks, and not knows where he goes, because the darkness blinded the eyes of him.
12 I write to you, O dear children, because are forgiven to you the sins through the name of him.
13 I write to you, O fathers, because you have known him from a beginning; I write to you, O young men, because you have overcome the evil one; I write to you, children, because you have known the Father.
14 I wrote to you, O fathers, because you have known him from a beginning. I wrote to you, O young men, because strong ones you are, and the word of the God in you abides, and you have overcome the evil one.
15 Not do you love the world, not the things in the world. If any one should love the world, not is the love of the Father in him;
16 because all that in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pomp of the life, not is from the Father, but from the world is.
17 And the world passes away, and the lust of it; the but one doing the will of the God, abides for the age.
18 Children, last hour is it; and as you heard, that the antichrist is coming, even now antichrists many have become; whence we know, that last hour it is.
19 From of us they went out, but not they were of us; if for they were of us, they would have remained with us; but so that they might be manifested, that not they are all of us.
20 And you an anointing have from the holy, and you know all things.
21 Not I wrote to you, because not you know the truth, but because you know her, and because every lie from the truth not is.
22 Who is the lair, if not the one denying, that Jesus not is the Anointed one? this is the antichrist, the one denying the Father and the son.
23 Every one the denying the son, not even the Father has; the one confessing the son, also the Father has.
24 You therefore what heard from a beginning, in you let abide; if in you should abide what from a beginning you heard, also you in the son and in the Father will abide.
25 And this is the promise, which he promised to us, the life the agelasting.
26 These things I wrote to you concerning those deceiving you.
27 And you the anointing which received from him, in you abides, and not need you have, so that any one may teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and true is, and not is a lie; and as it taught you, do you abide in him.
28 And how, dear children, do you abide in him; so that when he may appear, we may have boldness, and not we may be put to shame from him, in the presence of him.
29 If you may know, that righteous he is, you know, that every one the doing the righteousness, by him has been begotten.
