'Dear' in the Bible

Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command, but an old command that you have had from the beginning. The old command is the message you have heard.

I am writing to you, dear children, because for His sake your sins are forgiven you.

Dear children, the last hour has come; and as you once heard that there was to be an anti-Christ, so even now many anti-Christs have appeared. By this we may know that the last hour has come.

And now, dear children, continue in union with Him; so that, if He re-appears, we may have perfect confidence, and may not shrink away in shame from His presence at His Coming.
