Chapter 1 2 3 4 5

X 1st John

1:1  That 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—

X 1st John

1:2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—

X 1st John

1:3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X 1st John

1:4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.

X 1st John

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

X 1st John

1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

X 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 YASHUWAH the Messiah His Son cleanses us from all sin.

X 1st John

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

X 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.

X 1st John

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

X 1st John

2:1  My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, YASHUWAH the Messiah the righteous.

X 1st John

2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

X 1st John

2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

X 1st John

2:4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

X 1st John

2:5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of Elohim is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

X 1st John

2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

X 1st John

2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.

X 1st John

2:8 Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.

X 1st John

2:9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

X 1st John

2:10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.

X 1st John

2:11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

X 1st John

2:12 I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.

X 1st John

2:13 I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father.

X 1st John

2:14 I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of Elohim abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one.

X 1st John

2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

X 1st John

2:16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.

X 1st John

2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of Elohim abides forever.

X 1st John

2:18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antimessiahs have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

X 1st John

2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

X 1st John

2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

X 1st John

2:21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

X 1st John

2:22 Who is a liar but he who denies that YASHUWAH is the the Messiah? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.

X 1st John

2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

X 1st John

2:24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.

X 1st John

2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.

X 1st John

2:26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.

X 1st John

2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

X 1st John

2:28 And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

X 1st John

2:29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

X 1st John

3:1  Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of Elohim! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

X 1st John

3:2 Beloved, now we are children of Elohim; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

X 1st John

3:3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

X 1st John

3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

X 1st John

3:5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

X 1st John

3:6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

X 1st John

3:7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.

X 1st John

3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

X 1st John

3:9 Whoever has been born of Elohim does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of Elohim.

X 1st John

3:10 In this the children of Elohim and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of Elohim, nor is he who does not love his brother.

X 1st John

3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another,

X 1st John

3:12 not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.

X 1st John

3:13 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.

X 1st John

3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.

X 1st John

3:15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

X 1st John

3:16 By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

X 1st John

3:17 But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of Elohim abide in him?

X 1st John

3:18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

X 1st John

3:19 And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

X 1st John

3:20 For if our heart condemns us, Elohim is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

X 1st John

3:21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward Elohim.

X 1st John

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

X 1st John

3:23 And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son YASHUWAH the Messiah and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

X 1st John

3:24 Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

X 1st John

4:1  Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of Elohim; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

X 1st John

4:2 By this you know the Spirit of Elohim: Every spirit that confesses that YASHUWAH the Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim,

X 1st John

4:3 and every spirit that does not confess that YASHUWAH the Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

X 1st John

4:4 You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

X 1st John

4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.

X 1st John

4:6 We are of Elohim. He who knows Elohim hears us; he who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

X 1st John

4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of Elohim; and everyone who loves is born of Elohim and knows Elohim.

X 1st John

4:8 He who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love.

X 1st John

4:9 In this the love of Elohim was manifested toward us, that Elohim has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

X 1st John

4:10 In this is love, not that we loved Elohim, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

X 1st John

4:11 Beloved, if Elohim so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

X 1st John

4:12 No one has seen Elohim at any time. If we love one another, Elohim abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

X 1st John

4:13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

X 1st John

4:14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Saviour of the world.

X 1st John

4:15 Whoever confesses that YASHUWAH is the Son of Elohim, Elohim abides in him, and he in Elohim.

X 1st John

4:16 And we have known and believed the love that Elohim has for us. Elohim is love, and he who abides in love abides in Elohim, and Elohim in him.

X 1st John

4:17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

X 1st John

4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

X 1st John

4:19 We love Him because He first loved us.

X 1st John

4:20 If someone says, “I love Elohim,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love Elohim whom he has not seen?

X 1st John

4:21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves Elohim must love his brother also.

X 1st John

5:1  Whoever believes that YASHUWAH is the the Messiah is born of Elohim, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

X 1st John

5:2 By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and keep His commandments.

X 1st John

5:3 For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.

X 1st John

5:4 For whatever is born of Elohim overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

X 1st John

5:5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that YASHUWAH is the Son of Elohim?

X 1st John

5:6 This is He who came by water and blood—YASHUWAH the Messiah; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.

X 1st John

5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.

X 1st John

5:8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

X 1st John

5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of Elohim is greater; for this is the witness of Elohim which He has testified of His Son.

X 1st John

5:10 He who believes in the Son of Elohim has the witness in himself; he who does not believe Elohim has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that Elohim has given of His Son.

X 1st John

5:11 And this is the testimony: that Elohim has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

X 1st John

5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of Elohim does not have life.

X 1st John

5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of Elohim, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of Elohim.

X 1st John

5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

X 1st John

5:15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

X 1st John

5:16 If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.

X 1st John

5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.

X 1st John

5:18 We know that whoever is born of Elohim does not sin; but he who has been born of Elohim keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

X 1st John

5:19 We know that we are of Elohim, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

X 1st John

5:20 And we know that the Son of Elohim has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son YASHUWAH the Messiah. This is the true Elohim and eternal life.

X 1st John

5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
