1 John 1:5-2:2
English Standard Version
Walking in the Light
5 (A)This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that (B)God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 (C)If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and (D)do not practice the truth. 7 But (E)if we walk in the light, (F)as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and (G)the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 (H)If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and (I)the truth is not in us. 9 (J)If we confess our sins, he is (K)faithful and just to forgive us our sins and (L)to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, (M)we make him a liar, and (N)his word is not in us.
Christ Our Advocate
2 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, (O)we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 (P)He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but (Q)also for the sins of the whole world.
