NASB — 1 John 5 — KJV

Overcoming the World

1 aWhoever believes that Jesus is the IChrist is IIbborn of God, and whoever loves the IIIFather cloves the [child] IIborn of Him. 2 aBy this we know that bwe love the children of God, when we love God and Iobserve His commandments. 3 For athis is the love of God, that we bkeep His commandments; and cHis commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is Iaborn of God bovercomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

It is bthe Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are athree that testify: 8 Ithe Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are IIin agreement. 9 aIf we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that bHe has testified concerning His Son. 10 The one who believes in the Son of God ahas the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has bmade Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. 11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us aeternal life, and bthis life is in His Son. 12 aHe who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

He that loveth God loveth God's children, and keepeth his Commandments:

1 ¶ Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

which to the faithful are light, and not grievous.

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

Jesus is the Son of God, able to save us,

9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 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.

and to hear our prayers, which we make for ourselves, and for others.

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 16 If any man see his brother sin a sin [which is] not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19 [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
