1 John 1:9-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]If we acknowledge our sins, he is [b]faithful and just, to [c]forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 [d]If we say, we have not sinned, we make him [e]a liar, and his [f]word is not in us.


  1. 1 John 1:9 Therefore the beginning of salvation is to acknowledge our wickedness, and to require pardon from him who freely forgiveth all sins, because he hath promised so to do, and he is faithful and just.
  2. 1 John 1:9 So then our salvation hangeth upon the free promise of God, who because he is faithful and just, will perform that which he hath promised.
  3. 1 John 1:9 Where are then our merits? for this is our true felicity.
  4. 1 John 1:10 A rehearsal of the former sentence: wherein he condemned all of sin without exception, insomuch that if any man persuade himself otherwise, he doth as much as in him lieth, make the word of God himself vain and to no purpose, yea he maketh God a liar, for to what end either in times past needed sacrifices or now Christ and the Gospel, if we be not sinners?
  5. 1 John 1:10 They do not only deceive themselves, but also are blasphemous against God.
  6. 1 John 1:10 His doctrine shall have no place in us, that is, in our hearts.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
