If we receive (A)the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; (B)for this is the witness of [a]God which He has testified of His Son. 10 He who believes in the Son of God (C)has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God (D)has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 (E)He who has the Son has [b]life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, [c]and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
