7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doteth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
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.
9 Whosoever is bom of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is bora of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
11 If For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, That we should love one another.
12 Not as Cain, aha was of that wicked one and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him i Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate yon.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life; because wc love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer; and ye know that ne murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and wc ought to lay dow u our live3 for the brethren.
17 But whoso 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?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
20 For if our heart condemu us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that ar
in his sight.
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.
24 And he that kecpeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
