Berean Literal Bible
The Word of Life
1That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we have gazed upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— 2and the life was made manifest, and we have seen and bear witness, and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was revealed to us— 3that which we have seen and have heard, we proclaim to you also, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. 4And these things we write, so that oura joy might be complete.
Walking in the Light
5And this is the message that we have heard from Him and we preach to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. 6If we should say that we have fellowship with Him, and yet should walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7Butb if we should walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8If we should say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9If we should confess our sins, He is faithful and just, that He may forgive us our sins and might cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10If we should say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
