Online Bible





1 John 3

11 Because this is the word which was given to you from the first, that we are to have love for one another;

12 Not being of the Evil One like Cain, who put his brother to death. And why did he put him to death? Because his works were evil and his brother's works were good.

13 Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world has no love for you.

14 We are conscious that we have come out of death into life because of our love for the brothers. He who has no love is still in death.

15 Anyone who has hate for his brother is a taker of life, and you may be certain that no taker of life has eternal life in him.

16 In this we see what love is, because he gave his life for us; and it is right for us to give our lives for the brothers.

17 But if a man has this world's goods, and sees that his brother is in need, and keeps his heart shut against his brother, how is it possible for the love of God to be in him?

18 My little children, do not let our love be in word and in tongue, but let it be in act and in good faith.

19 In this way we may be certain that we are true, and may give our heart comfort before him,

20 When our heart says that we have done wrong; because God is greater than our heart, and has knowledge of all things.

21 My loved ones, if our heart does not say that we have done wrong, we have no fear before him;

22 And he gives us all our requests, because we keep his laws and do the things which are pleasing in his eyes.

23 And this is his law, that we have faith in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love for one another, even as he said to us.

24 He who keeps his laws is in God and God is in him. And the Spirit which he gave us is our witness that he is in us.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
