1 John 1

The Word of Life

1+ That which was + from the beginning, + which we have heard, + which we have seen with our eyes, + which we looked upon and + have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 2+ the life + was made manifest, and we have seen it, and + testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, + which was with the Father and + was made manifest to us— 3+ that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed + our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And we are writing these things so + that our+ joy may be complete.

Walking in the Light

5+ This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that + God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6+ If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and + do not practice the truth. 7But + if we walk in the light, + as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and + the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8+ If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and + the truth is not in us. 9+ If we confess our sins, he is + faithful and just to forgive us our sins and + to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say we have not sinned, + we make him a liar, and + his word is not in us.
