1 Beloved, believe not every a, but b the c whether they are of God: because many d are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby a ye the b of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the c is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is a: and this is that spirit of b, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the a: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God a us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby b we the c of truth, and the spirit of d.
7 Beloved, let us a one another: for b is of God; and every one that loveth is c, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not a not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might a through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he a us, and b his Son to be the c for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 a man hath b God at any time. If we love one another, c d in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we a in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do a that the Father b the Son to be the c of the d.
15 Whosoever shall a that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that a in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he a, so are we in this world.
18 There is no a in b; but perfect c casteth out fear: because fear hath d. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We a him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and a his b, he is a c: for he that loveth not his d whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not e?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who a God love his brother also.
