Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 5:13

_ _ The oldest manuscripts and versions read, “These things have I written unto you [omitting ‘that believe on the name of the Son of God’] that ye may know that ye have eternal life (compare 1 John 5:11), THOSE (of you I mean) WHO believe (not as English Version reads, ‘and that ye may believe’) on the name of the Son of God.” English Version, in the latter clause, will mean, “that ye may continue to believe,” etc. (compare 1 John 5:12).

_ _ These things — This Epistle. He, towards the close of his Gospel (John 20:30, John 20:31), wrote similarly, stating his purpose in having written. In 1 John 1:4 he states the object of his writing this Epistle to be, “that your joy may be full.” To “know that we have eternal life” is the sure way to “joy in God.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 5:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 5:13

These things have I written — In the introduction, 1 John 1:4, he said, I write: now, in the close, I have written. That ye may know — With a fuller and stronger assurance, that ye have eternal life.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 5:13

(13) These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

(13) The conclusion of the epistle, in which he shows first of all, that even they who already believe, need this doctrine, that they may grow more and more in faith: that is to say, that they may be daily more and more certain of their salvation in Christ, through faith.
