I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.
My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
For your name's sake, O LORD, pardon my iniquity; for it is great.
[A Psalm of David. A maschil.] Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us, do it for your name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against you.
Therefore I say unto you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved.
Even as David also describes the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputes righteousness without works,
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
And be you kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you have heard from the beginning.
I write unto you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because you have known the Father.
I have not written unto you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
