1 John 4:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

We love Him (ἡμεῖς ἀγαπῶμεν αὐτὸν)

The best texts omit Him. Some render let us love, as 1 John 4:7. The statement is general, relating to the entire operation of the principle of love. All human love is preceded and generated by the love of God.
