1 John 5:18-20 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

18 We know, that each man that is born of God, sinneth not; but the generation of God keepeth him, and the wicked toucheth him not.

19 We know, that we be of God, and all the world is set in evil [and all the world is put in wicked].

20 And we know, that the Son of God came in flesh, and gave to us wit, that we know him very God, and be in the very Son [Jesus] of him [and be in the very Son Jesus of him]. This is very God, and everlasting life.

1 John 5:18-20 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin, but he who is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one does not touch him.

19 We know that we are of God, and that the world is altogether set on wickedness. 20 We know that the Son of God has come, and has given us a mind to know him who is true. And we are in him who is true through his Son Jesus Christ. This same is very God and eternal life.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 John 5:18 A reason why not all, nay rather why no sin is mortal to some: to wit, because they be born of God, that is to say, made the sons of God in Christ, and being endued with his Spirit, they do not serve sin, neither are deadly wounded of Satan.
  2. 1 John 5:19 Every man must particularly apply to himself the general promises, that we may certainly persuade ourselves, that whereas all the world is by nature lost, we are freely made the sons of God, by the sending of Jesus Christ his Son unto us, of whom we are lightened with the knowledge of the true God, and everlasting life.
  3. 1 John 5:20 The divinity of Christ is most plainly proved by this place.
