1Jn 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father–Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
1Jn 2:2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
1Jn 2:3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.
1Jn 2:4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.
1Jn 2:5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him:
1Jn 2:6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
1Jn 2:7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard.
1Jn 2:8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
1Jn 2:9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness.
1Jn 2:10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.
1Jn 2:11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.
1Jn 2:12 I am writing to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
1Jn 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.
1Jn 2:16 For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.
1Jn 2:17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
1Jn 2:19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
1Jn 2:26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.
1Jn 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him.
1Jn 2:28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
1Jn 2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
