The King James Version Bible

1 John 2:8-14

  1. 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.

  2. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

  3. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

  4. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

  5. I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

  6. I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

  7. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
