Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and (A)sin is lawlessness. You know that He (B)appeared in order to (C)take away sins; and (D)in Him there is no sin. No one who remains in Him (E)sins continually; no one who sins continually has seen Him or [a](F)knows Him. (G)Little children, make sure no one (H)deceives you; (I)the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is (J)of the devil; for the devil [b]has been sinning from the beginning. (K)The Son of God (L)appeared for this purpose, (M)to destroy the works of the devil. No one who has been (N)born of God practices sin, because His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin continually, because he has been born of God.
