The King James Version Bible

1 John 4:5-9

  1. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

  2. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

  3. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

  4. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

  5. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
