18 Little children, let us not (A)love in word or talk but in deed and (B)in truth.

19 By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; 20 for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. 21 Beloved, (C)if our heart does not condemn us, (D)we have confidence before God; 22 and (E)whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and (F)do what pleases him. 23 And this is his commandment, (G)that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and (H)love one another, (I)just as he has commanded us. 24 (J)Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God,[a] and God[b] in him. And (K)by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
