1 John 1:5-7 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And this is the telling, that we heard of him, and tell to you, that God is light, and there be no darknesses in him.

If we say, that we have fellowship with him, and we wander in darknesses, we lie, and do not truth.

But if we walk in light, as also he is in light, we have fellowship together; and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin.

1 John 1:5-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

And this is the tidings that we have heard from him and declare to you: that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and yet walk in darkness, we lie, and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in light, even as he is in light, then we have fellowship with him, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]This then is the message, which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness.

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not truly.

But if we walk in the [b]light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, [c]and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 John 1:5 Now he entereth into a question, whereby we may understand that we are joined together with Christ, to wit, if we be governed with his light, which is perceived by the ordering of our life. And thus he reasoneth, God is in himself most pure light, therefore he agreeth with them, which are lightsome, but with them which are of the darksome he hath no fellowship.
  2. 1 John 1:7 God is said to be light of his own nature, and to be in light, that is to say, in that everlasting infinite blessedness: and we are said to walk in light, in that the beams of that light do shine unto us in the world.
  3. 1 John 1:7 A digression or going from the matter he is in with, to the remission of sins: for this our sanctification which walk in the light, is a testimony of our joining and knitting together, with Christ: but because this our light is very dark, we must needs obtain another benefit in Christ, to wit, that our sins may be forgiven us being sprinkled with his blood: and this in conclusion is the prop and stay of our salvation.
