1 John 5:14-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

14 And this is the trust which we have to God [And this is the trust that we have in God], that whatever thing we ask after his will, he shall hear us.

15 And we know, that he heareth us, whatever thing we ask; we know, that we have the askings, that we ask of him [which we ask of him].

16 He that knoweth that his brother sinneth a sin not to death [He that knoweth his brother to sin a sin not to death], ask he, and life shall be given to him that sinneth not to death. There is a sin to death; not for it I say, that any man pray.

17 Each wickedness is sin, and there is [a] sin to death.

1 John 5:14-17 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

14 And this is the trust that we have in him: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we will have the petitions that we ask of him.

16 If anyone sees his brother sin a sin that is not unto death, let him ask, and he will give him life for those who do not sin unto death. There is a sin unto death, for which I do not say that a person should pray. 17 All unrighteousness is sin, but there is sin not unto death.

14 [a]And this is that assurance that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us.

16 [b]If any man see his brother sin a sin that is not unto death, let him [c]ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death, I say not that thou shouldest pray for it.

17 [d]All unrighteousness is sin, but there is a sin not unto death.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 John 5:14 Because we do not yet in effect obtain that which we hope for, the Apostle joineth invocation or prayer with faith, which he will have to proceed from faith, and moreover to be conceived in such sort, that nothing be asked but that which is agreeable to the will of God: and such prayers cannot be vain.
  2. 1 John 5:16 We have to make prayers not only for ourselves, but also for our brethren which do sin, that their sins be not unto them, to death: and yet he excepteth that sin, which is never forgiven, or the sin against the holy Ghost, that is to say, an universal and willful falling away from the known truth of the Gospel.
  3. 1 John 5:16 This is as much as if he said, Let him desire the Lord to forgive him, and he will forgive him being so desired.
  4. 1 John 5:17 The taking away of an objection: Indeed all iniquity is comprehended under the name of sin, but yet we must not despair therefore, because every sin is not deadly, and without hope of remedy.

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
