2:1 My little sons, I write to you these things, that ye sin not. But if any man sinneth, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ just, My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye should not sin: and if any man sin, yet we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ, which is righteous: My babes, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not: and if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Just. My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2:2 and he is helping for our sins; soothly not only for ours, but also for the sins of all the world. and he it is that obtaineth grace for our sins: not for our sins only: but also for the sins of all the world. And he is the reconciliation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
2:3 And in this thing we know, that we know him, if we keep his commandments. And hereby we know that we have known him, if we keep his commandments. And hereby we are sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
2:4 He that saith that he knoweth God, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and truth is not in him. He that saith I know him, and keepeth not his commandments is a liar, and the verity is not in him. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
2:5 Forsooth who keepeth his word, verily in him is perfect charity. In this thing we know, that we be in him, if we be perfect in him. Whosoever keepeth his word, in him is the love of god perfect indeed. And therein know we that we are in him. But he that keepeth his word, in him is the love of God perfect indeed: hereby we know that we are in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
2:6 He that saith, that he dwelleth in him, he oweth to walk, as he walked. He that saith he bideth in him, ought to walk even as he walked. He that saith he remaineth in him, ought even so to walk, as he hath walked. He that saith he abideth in him, ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
2:7 Most dear brethren, I write to you, not a new commandment, but the old commandment, that ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word, that ye heard. Brethren I write no new commandment unto you: but that old commandment which ye heard from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye heard from the beginning. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you: but an old commandment, which ye have had from the beginning: the old commandment is the word, which ye have heard from the beginning. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning: the old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
2:8 Again I write to you a new commandment, that is true both in him and in you; for darknesses be passed, and very light now shineth. Again a new commandment I write unto you, a thing that is true in him, and also in you: for the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, that which is true in him, and also in you: for the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
2:9 He that saith, that he is in light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness till to yet. He that saith how that he is in the true light, and yet hateth his brother, is in darkness even until this time. He that saith that he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness until this time. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
2:10 He that loveth his brother, dwelleth in light, and offence is not in him. He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of evil in him. He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of evil in him. He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
2:11 But he that hateth his brother, is in darknesses, and wandereth in darknesses, and knoweth not whither he goeth; for darknesses have blinded his eyes. He that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness: and cannot tell whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. But he that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, & knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. But he that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
2:12 Little sons, I write to you, that your sins be forgiven to you for his name. Babes I write unto you how that your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. Little children, I write unto you, because your sins are forgiven you for his Name’s sake. I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his Name’s sake.
2:13 Fathers, I write to you, for ye have known him, that is from the beginning. Young men, I write to you, for ye have overcome the wicked. I write to you, infants, for ye have known the Father. I write unto you fathers, how that ye have known him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye have overcome the wicked. I write unto you little children, how that ye have known the father. I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked. I write unto you, babes, because ye have known the Father. I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
2:14 I write to you, brethren, for ye have known him, that is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, for ye be strong, and the word of God dwelleth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked. I write unto you fathers, how that ye have known him that was from the beginning. I write unto you young men, how that ye are strong: and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome that wicked. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him, that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
2:15 Do not ye love the world, neither those things that be in the world. If any man loveth the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. See that ye love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
2:16 For all things that is in the world, is covetousness of flesh, and covetousness of eyes, and pride of life, which is not of the Father, but it is of the world. For all that is in the world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of goods) is not of the father: but of the world. For all that is in this world (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, & the pride of life) is not of the Father, but is of the world. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
2:17 And the world shall pass, and the covetousness of it; but he that doeth the will of God, dwelleth into without end. And the world vanisheth away, and the lust thereof: but he that fulfilleth the will of god, abideth ever. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God, abideth for ever.
2:18 My little sons, the last hour is; and as ye have heard, that antichrist cometh, now many antichrists be made; whereof we know, that it is the last hour. Little children it is the last time, and as ye have heard how the Antichrist shall come: even now are there many Antichrists come already whereby we know that it is the last time. Babes, it is the last time, and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many Antichrists: whereby we know that it is the last time. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many Antichrists, whereby we know that it is the last time.
2:19 They went forth from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they had dwelt with us; but that they be known, that they be not of us. They went out from us but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us. But that fortuned that it might appear, that they were not of us. They went out from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But this cometh to pass, that it might appear, that they are not all of us. They went out from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out that they might be made manifest, that they were not all of us.
2:20 But ye have unction of the Holy Ghost, and know all things. And ye have an ointment of the holy ghost, and ye know all things. But ye have an ointment from him, that is Holy, & ye have known all things. But ye have an unction from the holy One, and ye know all things.
2:21 I wrote not to you, as to men that know not the truth, but as to men that know it, and for each lying is not of truth. I wrote not unto you, as though ye knew not the truth: but as though ye knew it, and know also that no lie cometh of truth. I have not written unto you, because ye know not the truth: but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. I have not written unto you, because ye know not the truth: but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
2:22 Who is a liar, but this that denieth that Jesus is not Christ? This is antichrist, that denieth the Father, and the Son. who is a liar: but he that denieth that Jesus is Christ? he is the Antichrist that denieth the father and the son. Who is a liar, but he that denieth that Jesus is Christ? the same is the Antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son. Who is a liar, but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? he is Antichrist, that denieth the Father, and the Son.
2:23 For each that denieth the Son, hath not the Father; but he that acknowledgeth the Son, hath also the Father. Whosoever denieth the son, the same hath not the father. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son, hath the Father also.
2:24 That thing that ye heard from the beginning, dwell in you; for if it shall dwell in you, which ye heard at the beginning, and ye shall dwell in the Son and in the Father. Let therefore abide in you that same which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the son, and in the father. Let therefore abide in you that same which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning, shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, & in the Father. Let that therefore abide in you which ye have heard from the beginning: if that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
2:25 And this is the promise, that he promised to us everlasting life. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
2:26 I wrote these things to you, of them that deceive you, This have I written unto you, as concerning them that deceive you. These things have I written unto you, concerning them that deceive you. These things have I written unto you, concerning them that seduce you.
2:27 and that the anointing which ye received of him, dwell in you. And ye have not need, that any man teach you, but as his anointing teacheth you of all things, and it is true, and it is not lying; and as he taught you, dwell ye in him. And the anointing which ye have received of him dwelleth in you. And ye need not that any man teach you: but as that anointing teacheth you all things, and is true, and is no lie: and as it taught you, even so bide therein. But the anointing which ye received of him, dwelleth in you: and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same Anointing teacheth you of all things, & it is true, & is not lying, & as it taught you, ye shall abide in him. But the anointing which ye have received of him, abideth in you: and ye need not that any man teach you: But, as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie: and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
2:28 And now, ye little sons, dwell ye in him, that when he shall appear, we have trust, and be not confounded of him in his coming. And now babes abide in him, that when he shall appear, we may be bold, and not be made ashamed of him at his coming. And now, little children, abide in him, that when he shall appear, we may be bold, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. And now, little children, abide in him, that when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
2:29 If ye know that he is just, know ye that also each that doeth rightwiseness, is born of him. If ye know that he is righteous, know also that he which followeth rightwiseness, is born of him. If ye know that he is righteous, know ye that he which doeth righteously, is born of him. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one which doeth righteousness, is born of him.
