1st John Chapter 3

1st John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father has given unto us, to be called the children of God: therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

1st John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the children of God, and has not made known yet what we will be: but we know that, when He will appear, we will be the same as Him; for we will see Him as He is.

1st John 3:3 And everyone that has this expectation in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure.

1st John 3:4 Whoever habitually sins is habitually lawless: for sin is lawlessness.

1st John 3:5 For you know that He was made known to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin.

1st John 3:6 Whoever remains in Him is not sinning: whoever is sinning has not seen Him, neither knows Him.

1st John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that is doing righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.

1st John 3:8 He that habitually sins is of the Devil; for the Devil sins from his origin. For this purpose the Son of God was made known, that He might undo the works of the Devil.

1st John 3:9 Whoever is born of God does not habitually sin; for His seed is remaining in him: and he is not able to be sinning, because he is born of God.

1st John 3:10 In this the children of God are evident, and the children of the Devil: whoever is not doing righteousness is not of God, neither he that is not loving his brother.

1st John 3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should be loving one another.

1st John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brothers’ righteous.

1st John 3:13 Do not be astonished, my brothers, if the world hate you.

1st John 3:14 We know that we have walked out of death into life, because we are loving the brothers. He that is not loving his brother stays in death.

1st John 3:15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has infinite life dwelling in him.

1st John 3:16 By this we know the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

1st John 3:17 But whoever has this world’s subsistence, and sees his brother has needs, and closes up his inner parts away from him, how is the love of God dwelling in him?

1st John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in speech, but in action and reality.

1st John 3:19 Therefore in this we know that we are out from the reality and will persuade our hearts before Him.

1st John 3:20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

1st John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, then we are able to speak freely before God.

1st John 3:22 And whatever we ask, we receive from Him, because we keep His commands, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.

1st John 3:23 Then this is His command that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us this command.

1st John 3:24 And he that is keeping His commands is dwelling in Him, and He in him. Therefore, in this we know that He is dwelling in us, out from the Spirit Whom He is giving us.
