GREEK.

Εν τουτω φανερα εστιν τα τεκνα του Θεου και τα τεκνα του διαβολου. Πας ὁ μη ποιων δικαιοσυνην ουκ εστιν εκ του Θεου, και ὁ μη αγαπων τον αδελφον αυτου· ὁτι αυτη εστιν ἡ αγγελια ἡν ηκουσατε απ' αρχης, ἱνα αγαπωμεν αλληλους· ου καθως Καιν εκ του πονηρου ἡν και εσφαξε τον αδελφον αυτου· και χαριν τινος εσφαξεν αυτον; ὁτι τα εργα αυτου πονηρα ἡν, τα δε του αδελφου αυτου δικαια. μη θαυμαζετε, αδελφοι, ει μισει ὑμας ὁ κοσμος. Ἡμεις οιδαμεν ὁτι μεταβεβηκαμεν εκ του θανατου εις την ζωην, ὁτι αγαπωμεν τους αδελφους· ὁ μη αγαπων μενει. εν τω θανατω· πας ὁ μισων τον αδελφον αυτου ανθρωποκτονος εστιν· και οιδατε ὁτι πας ανθρωποκτονος ουκ εχει ζωην αιωνιον εν αυτω μενουσαν. Εν τουτω εγνωκαμεν την αγαπην, ὁτι εκεινος ὑπερ ἡμων την ψυχην αυτου εθηκε· και ἡμεις οφειλομεν ὑπερ των αδελφων τας ψυχας θειναι. ὁς δ' ἁν εχη τον βιον του κοσμου και θεωρη τον αδελφον αυτου χρειαν εχοντα και κλειση τα σπλαγχνα αυτου απ' αυτου, πως ἡ αγαπη του Θεου μενει εν αυτω; τεκνια μη αγαπωμεν λογω μηδε γλωσση, αλλ' εργω και αληθεια. Και εν τουτω γινωσκμεν ὁτι εκ της αληθειας εσμεν, και εμπροσθεν αυτου πεισομεν τας καρδιας ἡμων· ὁτι εαν καταγινωσκη ἡμων ἡ καρδια, ὁτι μειζων εστιν ὁ Θεος της καρδιας ἡμων, και γινωσκει παντα. αγαπητοι, εαν, ἡ καρδια ἡμων μη καταγινωσκη ἡμων, παρρησιαν εχομεν προς τον Θεον, και ὁ εαν αιτωμεν, λαμβανομεν παρ' αυτου, ὁτι τας εντολας αυτου τηρουμεν, και τα αρεστα ενωπιον αυτου ποισυμεν. και αυτη εστιν ἡ εντολη αυτου, ἱνα πιστευσωμεν τω ονοματι του υιου αυτου Ιησου Χριστου, και αγαπωμεν αλληλους, καθως εδωκεν εντολην. και ὁ τηρων τας εντολας αυτου, εν αυτω μενει, και αυτος εν αυτω. και εν τουτω γινωσκομεν ὁτι μενει εν ἡμιν, εκ του Πνευματος ου ἡμιν εδωκεν.

LATIN.

In hoc manifesti sunt filii Dei et filii diaboli. Omnis qui non est iustus non est ex Deo, et qui non diligit fratrem suum; quoniam hæc est adnuntiatio quam audistis ab initio, ut diligamus alterutrum, non sicut Cain ex maligno erat, et occidit fratrem suum. Et propter quid occidit eum? quoniam opera eius maligna erant, fratris autem eius iusta. Nolite mirari fratres si odit nos mundus. Nos scimus quoniam translati sumus de morte in vitam, quoniam diligimus fratres: qui non diligit, manet in morte. Omnis qui odit fratrem suum homicida est, et scitis quoniam omnis homicida non habet vitam æternam in se manentem. In hoc cognovimus caritatem Dei, quoniam ille pro nobis animam suam posuit: et nos debemus pro fratribus animas ponere. Qui habuerit substantiam mundi et viderit fratrem suum necesse habere et clauserit viscera sua ab eo, quomodo caritas Dei manet in eo? Filioli non diligamus verbo nec lingua sed opere et veritate. In hoc cognovimus quoniam ex veritate sumus: et in conspectu eius suademus corda nostra, quoniam si reprehenderit nos cor nostrum, major est Deus corde nostro et novit omnia. Carissimi si cor nostrum non reprehenderit nos, fiduciam habemus ad Deum, et quodcumque petierimus accipiemus abeo, quoniam mandata eius custodemus et ea quæ sunt placita coram eo facimus. Et hoc est mandatum eius ut credamus in nomine filii eius Iesu Christi et diligamus alterutrum sicut dedit mandatum nobis. Et qui servat mandata eius, in illo manet et ipse in eo: et in hoc scimus quoniam manet in nobis, de spiritu quem dedit nobis.

AUTHORISED VERSION.

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does, not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He that loves not his brother abides in death. Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whosoever has this world's good, and sees, his brother have need, and shuts, up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells, the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows, all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment, That we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment. And he that keeps, His commandments dwells, in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He has given us.

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does, not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother. For this is the message which you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another: not as Cain was of the evil one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his works were evil, and his brother's righteous. Marvel not, brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He that loves not abides in death. Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Hereby know we love, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whosoever has the world's goods, and beholds, his brother in need, and shuts, up his compassion from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither with the tongue; but in deed and truth. Hereby shall we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our heart before him, in whatsoever place our heart condemn us; because God is greater than our heart, and knows, all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, we have boldness toward God; and whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment, that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, even as He gave us commandment. And he that keeps, His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He gave us.

ANOTHER VERSION.

In this the children of God are manifest and the children of the devil: every one who is not doing righteousness is not of God, neither he that is not loving his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning that you should love one another. Not as Cain was of the wicked one and slew his brother (shall we be). And wherefore slew he him? because his works were evil, but those of his brother righteous. Brethren, marvel not if the world hate you. We know that we have passed over from the death to the life because we love the brethren. He who loves not abides in the death. Every one who hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Hereby know we The Love because He laid down His life for us: and we are bound to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whosoever has the living of the world and gazes on his brother having need and shuts out his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? Children let us not love in word, nor with the tongue, but in work and truth. Hereby shall we know that we are of the truth and shall persuade our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemn us God is greater than our heart and [Pg 187]knows, all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not then have we boldness toward God, and whatsoever we ask we receive of Him, for we observe His commandments, and are doing those things that are pleasing in His sight. And His commandment is this, that we should believe the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another as He gave commandment. And he who is observing His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abides in us --- out of the fulness of the Spirit of what He gave us.
