27 As for you, the (A)anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing (B)teaches you about all things, and is (C)true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, [a]you abide in Him.

28 Now, (D)little children, abide in Him, so that when He (E)appears, we may have (F)confidence and (G)not [b]shrink away from Him in shame [c]at His (H)coming. 29 If you know that (I)He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness (J)is [d]born of Him.
