That You May Know

1 John 5

13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, 1 and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that s if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 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.

16 If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and t He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. u There is sin leading to death. v I do not say that he should pray about that. 17 w All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.

18 We know that x whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God y keeps 2 3 himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

19 We know that we are of God, and z the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

20 And we know that the a Son of God has come and b has given us an understanding, c that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. d This is the true God e and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
