062:003:001
Behold,
what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God:
therefore the world knoweth us not,
because it knew him not.


062:003:002
Beloved,
now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that,
when he shall appear,
we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.


062:003:003
And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself,
even as he is pure.


062:003:004
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law:
for sin is the transgression of the law.


062:003:005
And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;
and in him is no sin.


062:003:006
Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not:
whosoever sinneth hath not seen him,
neither known him.


062:003:007
Little children,
let no man deceive you:
he that doeth righteousness is righteous,
even as he is righteous.


062:003:008
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.


062:003:009
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;
for his seed remaineth in him:
and he cannot sin,
because he is born of God.


062:003:010
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.


062:003:011
For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning,
that we should love one another.


062:003:012
Not as Cain,
who was of that wicked one,
and slew his brother.
And wherefore slew he him?
Because his own works were evil,
and his brother's righteous.


062:003:013
Marvel not,
my brethren,
if the world hate you.


062:003:014
We know that we have passed from death unto life,
because we love the brethren.
He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.


062:003:015
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer:
and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.


062:003:016
Hereby perceive we the love of God,
because he laid down his life for us:
and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.


062:003:017
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?


062:003:018
My little children,
let us not love in word,
neither in tongue;
but in deed and in truth.


062:003:019
And hereby we know that we are of the truth,
and shall assure our hearts before him.


062:003:020
For if our heart condemn us,
God is greater than our heart,
and knoweth all things.


062:003:021
Beloved,
if our heart condemn us not,
then have we confidence toward God.


062:003:022
And whatsoever we ask,
we receive of him,
because we keep his commandments,
and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.


062:003:023
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.


062:003:024
And he that keepeth 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.
