Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Beloved, do not believe all spirits, but be distinguishing between the spirits whether they are from God, because many false Prophets have gone out into the world. 2The Spirit of God is known by this: every spirit who confesses that Yeshua The Messiah has come in the flesh is from God. 3And no spirit that does not confess that Yeshua has come in the flesh is from God, but this is from that False Messiah, him whom you have heard that he will come, and already he is in the world. 4You are from God, children, and you have conquered them, because he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5And these are from the world, therefore they speak from the world and the world listens to them. 6But we are from God and he who knows God listens to us and he who is not from God does not listen to us; by this we perceive The Spirit of Truth and the spirit of deception.
7Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God, 8Because God is love, and everyone who does not love does not know God. 9In this the love of God is known to us: for God sent his only Son to the world so that it shall live by him. 10In this is love: it was not that we loved God, but he has loved us, and he sent us his Son, the atonement for the sake of our sins. 11Beloved, if God loves us in this way, we are indebted also to love one another. 12No person has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God abides in us, and his love is fulfilled in us. 13In this we know that we abide in him and he abides in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And we see and do testify that The Father hath sent his Son, The Savior for the world.
15And everyone who confesses Yeshua, that he is The Son of God, God dwells in him and he dwells in God. 16And we believe and we know the love that God has for us, for God is love, and everyone who dwells in love dwells in God. 17By this, love is fulfilled with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, so also are we, in this world. 18There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear is by suspicion, but he who fears is not grown up in love. 19Therefore we shall love God because he first loved us. 20But if a man will say, "I love God", and he hates his brother, he is lying; for he who does not love his brother who is visible, how is it possible for him to love God who is invisible? 21And we have received this commandment from him: "Everyone who loves God shall love his brother also".
