1 John 2:17 — 1 John 3:9
17 And the world is apassing away, and its 1lust, but he who 2bdoes the 1cwill of God abides forever.
18 1Young children, it is the alast hour; and even as you heard that 2bantichrist is coming, even now 3many antichrists have ccome; whereby we know that it is the last hour.
19 They awent out from us, but they were 1not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have 2remained with us; but they went out that they might be bmanifested that they all are not of us.
20 And you have an 1aanointing from the bHoly One, and 2call of you dknow.
21 I have not written to you because you do not know the 1truth, but because you 2know it and because no alie is of the 1truth.
22 Who is the aliar if not he who 1bdenies that 2cJesus is the Christ? This is the dantichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
23 Everyone who 1denies the Son does not have the aFather either; he who confesses the bSon has the Father also.
24 As for you, 1that which you heard 2from the beginning, let it abide in you. If that which you aheard 2from the beginning babides in you, you also will 3cabide in the dSon and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise which 1He Himself 2promised us, the 3aeternal life.
26 These things I have written to you 1concerning those who 2alead you astray.
27 And as for you, the 1anointing which you have received from 2Him 3abides in you, and you have 4no need that anyone teach you; but as 2His anointing 5ateaches you concerning 6all things and is 7true and is not a blie, and even as it has taught you, 8abide in 2Him.
28 And now, 1little children, 2abide in Him, so that if 3He is amanifested, we may have bboldness and not be 4put to cshame 5from Him 6at His dcoming.
29 If you 1know that 2He is 3arighteous, 4you 5know that everyone who 6bpractices crighteousness also has been 7begotten of Him.
1 1Behold what manner of 2alove the 3Father has given to us, that we should be called 4bchildren of God; and we are. 5Because of this the world does not 6know us, 7because it did not cknow Him.
2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and 1it has not yet been manifested what we will be. We 2know that if 3He is amanifested, we will be blike Him because we will 4csee Him even as 3He is.
3 And everyone who has 1this ahope set on Him 2bpurifies himself, even as 3cHe is pure.
4 Everyone who 1apractices sin practices 2lawlessness also, and bsin is lawlessness.
5 And you know that He was amanifested that He might 1take away bsins; and sin is not in 2Him.
6 Everyone who 1aabides in Him 2bdoes not sin; everyone who 3sins 4has cnot seen Him or dknown Him.
7 1Little children, let no one 2alead you astray; he who 3bpractices righteousness is 4crighteous, even as He is drighteous;
8 He who 1apractices sin is of the 2bdevil, because the devil has 1sinned 3from the beginning. 4For this purpose the Son of God was cmanifested, that He might 5ddestroy the works of the devil.
9 Everyone who has been 1begotten of God does 2not practice sin, because His 3aseed babides in him; and he 4cannot sin, because he has been begotten of God.
