1 John 3:19-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 In this thing we know, that we be of truth, and in his sight we admonish our hearts.

20 For if our heart reprove us, God is more than our heart, and knoweth all things.

21 Most dear brethren, if our heart reproveth not us, we have trust to God;

22 and whatever we shall ask, we shall receive of him, for we keep his commandments, and we do those things that be pleasant before him.

1 John 3:19-22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 For by this we know that we are of the truth, and can quiet our hearts before him. 20 But if our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts, and knows all things. 21 Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, then we have trust before God – 22 and whatever we ask, we shall receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 John 3:19 He commendeth charity by a triple effect: for first of all, by it we know that we are indeed the sons of God, as he showeth before.
  2. 1 John 3:19 Therefore it cometh that we have a quiet conscience, as on the contrary side he that thinketh that he hath God for a judge, because he is guilty to himself, either he is never or else very rare quiet: for God hath a far quicker sight than we, and judgeth more severely.
  3. 1 John 3:20 If an evil conscience convinceth us, much more ought the judgments of God contemn us, who knoweth our hearts better than we ourselves do.
  4. 1 John 3:21 A third effect also riseth out of the former, that in these miseries we are sure to be heard, because we are the sons of God, as we understand by the grace of sanctification which is proper to the elect.
  5. 1 John 3:22 The conclusion: That faith in Christ, and love one towards another, are things joined together, and therefore the outward testimonies of sanctification must and do answer that inward testimony of the Spirit given unto us.
