1 John 2:3-11
|1 John 2 (NKJV™)|
|3||Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.|
|4||He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.|
|5||But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.|
|6||He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.|
|7||Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.|
|8||Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.|
|9||He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.|
|10||He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.|
|11||But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.|
