King James Version1 John1

1 John

1 That which was from the be­gin­ning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked up­on, and our hands have han­dled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was man­i­fest­ed, and we have seen it, and bear wit­ness, and shew unto you that eter­nal life, which was with the Fa­ther, and was man­i­fest­ed unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard de­clare we unto you, that ye also may have fel­low­ship with us: and tru­ly our fel­low­ship is with the Fa­ther, and with his Son Je­sus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5 This then is the mes­sage which we have heard of him, and de­clare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no dark­ness at all. 6 If we say that we have fel­low­ship with him, and walk in dark­ness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fel­low­ship one with an­oth­er, and the blood of Je­sus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we de­ceive our­selves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we con­fess our sins, he is faith­ful and just to for­give us our sins, and to cleanse us from all un­righ­teous­ness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
