'May' in the Bible
that which we have seen and heard declare we unto you also, that ye also may have fellowship with us: yea, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ:
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be fulfilled.
if we may say -- 'we have fellowship with Him,' and in the darkness may walk -- we lie, and do not the truth;
and if in the light we may walk, as He is in the light -- we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son doth cleanse us from every sin;
if we may say -- 'we have not sin,' ourselves we lead astray, and the truth is not in us;
if we may confess our sins, stedfast He is and righteous that He may forgive us the sins, and may cleanse us from every unrighteousness;
if we may say -- 'we have not sinned,' a liar we make Him, and His word is not in us.
My little children, I write you these things so that you may not violate God's law and sin. But if anyone should sin, we have an Advocate (One Who will intercede for us) with the Father -- "[it is] Jesus Christ [the all] righteous [upright, just, Who conforms to the Father's will in every purpose, thought, and action].
And this is how we may discern [ daily, by experience] that we are coming to know Him [to perceive, recognize, understand, and become better acquainted with Him]: if we keep (bear in mind, observe, practice) His teachings (precepts, commandments).
But he who keeps (treasures) His Word [who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety], truly in him has the love of and for God been perfected (completed, reached maturity). By this we may perceive (know, recognize, and be sure) that we are in Him:
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.
Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
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].
See ye what love the Father hath given to us, that children of God we may be called; because of this the world doth not know us, because it did not know Him;
beloved, now, children of God are we, and it was not yet manifested what we shall be, and we have known that if he may be manifested, like him we shall be, because we shall see him as he is;
and ye have known that he was manifested that our sins he may take away, and sin is not in him;
he who is doing the sin, of the devil he is, because from the beginning the devil doth sin; for this was the Son of God manifested, that he may break up the works of the devil;
because this is the message that ye did hear from the beginning, that we may love one another,
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.
But whoso may have the world's substance, and see his brother having need, and shut up his bowels from him, how abides the love of God in him?
My little children, may we not love in word nor in tongue, but in word and in truth!
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.
Beloved, if our heart may not condemn us, we have boldness toward God,
and whatever we may ask, we receive from Him, because His commands we keep, and the things pleasing before Him we do,
and this is His command, that we may believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and may love one another, even as He did give command to us,
By this you may know (perceive and recognize) the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [actually] has become man and has come in the flesh is of God [has God for its source];
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.
Beloved, may we love one another, because the love is of God, and every one who is loving, of God he hath been begotten, and doth know God;
God's love for us has been manifested in that He has sent His only Son into the world so that we may have Life through Him.
God no one hath ever seen; if we may love one another, God in us doth remain, and His love is having been perfected in us;
whoever may confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God in him doth remain, and he in God;
By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He 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;
for this is the love of God, that His commands we may keep, and His commands are not burdensome;
I write all this to you in order that you who believe in the Son of God may know for certain that you already have the Life of the Ages.
And this is the boldness that we have toward Him, that if anything we may ask according to his will, He doth hear us,
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 a man sees his brother doing a sin which is not bad enough for death, let him make a prayer to God, and God will give life to him whose sin was not bad enough for death. There is a sin whose punishment is death: I do not say that he may make such a request then.
All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin which does not [involve] death [that may be repented of and forgiven].
But we know that the Son of God is come and has given us understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
