||omnis qui credit quoniam Iesus est Christus ex Deo natus est et omnis qui diligit eum qui genuit diligit eum qui natus est ex eo
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ, is born of God. And every one that loveth him who begot, loveth him also who is born of him.
||in hoc cognoscimus quoniam diligimus natos Dei cum Deum diligamus et mandata eius faciamus
In this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God and keep his commandments.
||haec est enim caritas Dei ut mandata eius custodiamus et mandata eius gravia non sunt
For this is the charity of God: That we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not heavy.
||quoniam omne quod natum est ex Deo vincit mundum et haec est victoria quae vincit mundum fides nostra
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world. And this is the victory which overcameth the world: Our faith.
||quis est qui vincit mundum nisi qui credit quoniam Iesus est Filius Dei
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
||hic est qui venit per aquam et sanguinem Iesus Christus non in aqua solum sed in aqua et sanguine et Spiritus est qui testificatur quoniam Christus est veritas
This is he that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth.
||quia tres sunt qui testimonium dant
And there are Three who give testimony (in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one.)^
||Spiritus et aqua et sanguis et tres unum sunt
(And there are three that give testimony on earth:) the spirit and the water and the blood. And these three are one.
||si testimonium hominum accipimus testimonium Dei maius est quoniam hoc est testimonium Dei quod maius est quia testificatus est de Filio suo
If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater. For this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because he hath testified of his Son.
||qui credit in Filio Dei habet testimonium Dei in se qui non credit Filio mendacem facit eum quoniam non credidit in testimonio quod testificatus est Deus de Filio suo
He that believeth in the Son of God hath the testimony of God in himself. He that believeth not the Son maketh him a liar: because he believeth not in the testimony which God hath testified of his Son.
||et hoc est testimonium quoniam vitam aeternam dedit nobis Deus et haec vita in Filio eius est
And this is the testimony that God hath given to us eternal life. And this life is in his Son.
||qui habet Filium habet vitam qui non habet Filium Dei vitam non habet
He that hath the Son hath life. He that hath not the Son hath not life.
||haec scripsi vobis ut sciatis quoniam vitam habetis aeternam qui creditis in nomine Filii Dei
These things I write to you that you may know that you have eternal life: you who believe in the name of the Son of God.
||et haec est fiducia quam habemus ad eum quia quodcumque petierimus secundum voluntatem eius audit nos
And this is the confidence which we have towards him: That, whatsoever we shall ask according to his will, he heareth us.
||et scimus quoniam audit nos quicquid petierimus scimus quoniam habemus petitiones quas postulavimus ab eo
And we know that he heareth us whatsoever we ask: we know that we have the petitions which we request of him.
||qui scit fratrem suum peccare peccatum non ad mortem petet et dabit ei vitam peccantibus non ad mortem est peccatum ad mortem non pro illo dico ut roget
He that knoweth his brother to sin a sin which is not to death, let him ask: and life shall be given to him who sinneth not to death. There is a sin unto death. For that I say not that any man ask.
||omnis iniquitas peccatum est et est peccatum non ad mortem
All iniquity is sin. And there is a sin unto death.
||scimus quoniam omnis qui natus est ex Deo non peccat sed generatio Dei conservat eum et malignus non tangit eum
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not: but the generation of God preserveth him and the wicked one toucheth him not.
||scimus quoniam ex Deo sumus et mundus totus in maligno positus est
We know that we are of God and the whole world is seated in wickedness.
||et scimus quoniam Filius Dei venit et dedit nobis sensum ut cognoscamus verum Deum et simus in vero Filio eius hic est verus Deus et vita aeterna
And we know that the Son of God is come. And he hath given us understanding that we may know the true God and may be in his true Son. This is the true God and life eternal.
|| filioli custodite vos a simulacris
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
