16 If anyone sees his brother or sister [a]committing a sin not leading to death, (A)he shall ask and [b]God will, for him, give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. (B)There is sin leading to death; (C)I am not saying that he should ask about that. 17 (D)All unrighteousness is sin, and (E)there is sin not leading to death.

18 (F)We know that (G)no one who has been born of God [c]sins; but He who was born of God (H)keeps him, and (I)the evil one does not (J)touch him.
