1 John 5:1-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

Obedience by Faith

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—[a]our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

The Certainty of God’s Witness

This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness [b]in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of [c]God which He has testified of His Son. 10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has [d]life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

約 翰 一 書 5:1-12 Chinese Union Version (Traditional) (CUV)

凡 信 耶 穌 是 基 督 的 , 都 是 從 神 而 生 , 凡 愛 生 他 之 神 的 , 也 必 愛 從 神 生 的 。

我 們 若 愛 神 , 又 遵 守 他 的 誡 命 , 從 此 就 知 道 我 們 愛 神 的 兒 女 。

我 們 遵 守 神 的 誡 命 , 這 就 是 愛 他 了 , 並 且 他 的 誡 命 不 是 難 守 的 。

因 為 凡 從 神 生 的 , 就 勝 過 世 界 ; 使 我 們 勝 了 世 界 的 , 就 是 我 們 的 信 心 。

勝 過 世 界 的 是 誰 呢 ? 不 是 那 信 耶 穌 是 神 兒 子 的 麼 ?

這 藉 著 水 和 血 而 來 的 , 就 是 耶 穌 基 督 ; 不 是 單 用 水 , 乃 是 用 水 又 用 血 ,

並 且 有 聖 靈 作 見 證 , 因 為 聖 靈 就 是 真 理 。

作 見 證 的 原 來 有 三 : 就 是 聖 靈 、 水 , 與 血 , 這 三 樣 也 都 歸 於 一 。

我 們 既 領 受 人 的 見 證 , 神 的 見 證 更 該 領 受 了 ( 該 領 受 : 原 文 作 大 ) , 因 神 的 見 證 是 為 他 兒 子 作 的 。

10 信 神 兒 子 的 , 就 有 這 見 證 在 他 心 裡 ; 不 信 神 的 , 就 是 將 神 當 作 說 謊 的 , 因 不 信 神 為 他 兒 子 作 的 見 證 。

11 這 見 證 就 是 神 賜 給 我 們 永 生 ; 這 永 生 也 是 在 他 兒 子 裡 面 。

12 人 有 了 神 的 兒 子 就 有 生 命 , 沒 有 神 的 兒 子 就 沒 有 生 命 。

1 John 5:1-12 New International Version (NIV)

Faith in the Incarnate Son of God

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
