1 John 5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
To love God is to keep his commandments. Faith overcomes the world. Everlasting life is in the Son of God. Of the sin unto death.
5 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ, is born of God. And every one who loves him who begat, loves also the child who was born of him. 2 In this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God and keep his commandments. 3 This is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not grievous. 4 For all that is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world: even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This Jesus Christ is he who came by water and blood – not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 (For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.) 8 And there are three which bear witness (in earth): the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and these three are one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater. For this is the witness of God, which he testified of his Son. 10 He who believes on 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 gave of his Son. 11 And this is that testimony: that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He who has the Son, has life, and he who does not have the Son of God, does not have life.
13 These things I have written to you who believe on the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life, and so that you may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14 And this is the trust that we have in him: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we will have the petitions that we ask of him.
16 If anyone sees his brother sin a sin that is not unto death, let him ask, and he will give him life for those who do not sin unto death. There is a sin unto death, for which I do not say that a person should pray. 17 All unrighteousness is sin, but there is sin not unto death.
18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin, but he who is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are of God, and that the world is altogether set on wickedness. 20 We know that the Son of God has come, and has given us a mind to know him who is true. And we are in him who is true through his Son Jesus Christ. This same is very God and eternal life.
