'May' in the Bible

what we have seen and heard we also declare to you, so that you may have fellowship along with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

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.

Ye, then, that which ye heard from the beginning, in you let it remain; if in you may remain that which from the beginning ye did hear, ye also in the Son and in the Father shall remain,

I am writing these things to you about those whose purpose is that you may be turned out of the true way.

and you, the anointing that ye did receive from him, in you it doth remain, and ye have no need that any one may teach you, but as the same anointing doth teach you concerning all, and is true, and is not a lie, and even as was taught you, ye shall remain in him.

And now, little children, remain in him, that when he may be manifested, we may have boldness, and may not be ashamed before him, in his presence;

If you know (perceive and are sure) that He [Christ] is [absolutely] righteous [conforming to the Father's will in purpose, thought, and action], you may also know (be sure) that everyone who does righteously [and is therefore in like manner conformed to the divine will] is born (begotten) of Him [ God].

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.

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

because if our heart may condemn -- because greater is God than our heart, and He doth know all things.

By this you may have knowledge of the Spirit of God: every spirit which says that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God:

We are of God: he who has the knowledge of God gives ear to us; he who is not of God does not give ear to us. By this we may see which is the true spirit, and which is the spirit of error.

By this love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus is, so also are we in this world.

if any one may say -- 'I love God,' and his brother he may hate, a liar he is; for he who is not loving his brother whom he hath seen, God -- whom he hath not seen -- how is he able to love?

and this is the command we have from Him, that he who is loving God, may also love his brother.

in this we know that we love the children of God, when we may love God, and His commands may keep;

and if we have known that He doth hear us, whatever we may ask, we have known that we have the requests that we have requested from Him.

If any one may see his brother sinning a sin not unto death, he shall ask, and He shall give to him life to those sinning not unto death; there is sin to death, not concerning it do I speak that he may beseech;

All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin which does not [involve] death [that may be repented of and forgiven].
