1st John Chapter 1

1st John 1:1 That1 which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life;

1st John 1:2 for the life was made visible, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and make known to you this infinite life, who was with the Father, and was made visible to us;

1st John 1:3 what we have seen and heard we make known to you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.

1st John 1:4 We write these things to you, how your joy may be abundantly supplied.

1st John 1:5 This is the message which we have heard from Him, and report to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.

1st John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we are false, and do not practice the reality:

1st John 1:7 but if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son always cleanses us from all sin.

1st John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the reality is not in us.

1st John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1st John 1:10 If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
