The Spirit (o. pneuma) itself bears witness with our spirit, (o. pneuma) that we are the children of God:
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love (o. agape) of the Father is not in him.
Doubtless you are our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: you, O LORD, are our father, our redeemer; your name is from everlasting.

The living, the living, he shall praise you, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known your truth.
Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world.
Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
Be all of you therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
I write unto you, fathers, because all of you have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because all of you have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because all of you have known the Father.
