1 John 1:9-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)

But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous,[a] forgiving[b] us our sins and cleansing[c] us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar and his word is not in us.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 John 1:9 tn Or “just.”
  2. 1 John 1:9 tn The ἵνα (hina) followed by the subjunctive is here equivalent to the infinitive of result, an “ecbatic” or consecutive use of ἵνα according to BDAG 477 s.v. 3 where 1 John 1:9 is listed as a specific example. The translation with participles (“forgiving,…cleansing”) conveys this idea of result.
  3. 1 John 1:9 tn Or “purifying.”
