1 John 3:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Shall assure (πείσομεν)

Two renderings are possible; the primitive meaning persuade (Acts 19:26; Acts 17:4; 2 Corinthians 5:11); or the secondary and consequent sense, assure, quiet, conciliate (Matthew 28:14). Render as A.V., and Rev. as sure. See critical note at the end of the commentary on this Epistle.

Before Him (ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ)

Emphatic, the order being, before Him we shall assure our heart. These words are to be kept in mind as the key-note of what follows.
