  3. 1 John 2:13 sn The phrase the evil one is used in John 17:15 as a reference to Satan. Satan is also the referent here and in the four other occurrences in 1 John (2:14; 3:12; 5:18, 19).
  4. 1 John 2:14 tn See the note on “that” in v. 12.
  5. 1 John 2:14 sn The versification of vv. 13 and 14 (so also NAB, NRSV, NLT) follows that of the NA27/28 and UBS4/5 editions of the Greek text. Some English translations, however, break the verses between the sentence addressed to children and the sentence addressed to fathers (KJV, NKJV, NASB, NIV). The same material has been translated in each case; the only difference is the versification of that material.
