The King James Version Bible

1 John 2:1-8

  1. 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

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

  3. 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

  4. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

  5. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

  6. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

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

  8. 8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
