I write unto you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven you, for the sake of his name:
Be it known unto you, therefore, brethren, - that, through this man, unto you, remission of sins is declared;
Yet he saved them, for the sake of his Name, to make known his mighty power;
And that repentance for remission of sins should be proclaimed upon his name unto all the nations, - beginning from Jerusalem.
Unto the same, do all the prophets bear witness, That, remission of sins, is to be received through his name, by every one that believeth on him.
My dear children! these things, am I writing unto you, in order that ye may not be committing sin. And, if anyone should commit sin, an Advocate, have we, with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous;
For the sake of thy Name, O Yahweh, Therefore wilt thou pardon mine iniquity, for great it is.
How happy is he whose transgression is forgiven! whose sin is pardoned!
Though, our iniquities, have testified against us, O Yahweh, effectually work thou for the sake of thy Name, - For our apostasies have abounded Against thee, have we sinned.
For which cause, I say unto thee - Her many sins, have been forgiven, because she hath loved, much: but, he to whom little is forgiven, little, loveth.
And there is in no one else, salvation, for, neither is there any other name, under heaven, which hath been set forth among men, in which we must needs be saved.
Just as David also affirmeth the happiness of the man unto whom God reckoneth righteousness apart from works: -
In whom we have the redemption through his blood, the remission of our offences, according to the riches of his favour,
And be ye gracious one to another, tenderly affectionate, in favour forgiving one another - even as, God also, in Christ, hath in favour forgiven you;
Whereas, if, in the light, we are walking, as, he, is in the light, we have, fellowship one with another, and, the blood of Jesus his Son, is cleansing us from all sin.
If we are confessing our sins, faithful, is he and, righteous - that he should forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Beloved! no new commandment, am I writing unto you; but an old commandment, which ye have been holding from the beginning: The old commandment is the word which ye have heard.
I write unto you, fathers, because ye understand him who was from the beginning: I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I have written unto you, little children, because ye understand the Father:
I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and because, no falsehood, is, of the truth.
