          DASV: 1 John 2    

1 My dear children, I write these things to you so that you
will not sin. But if any one does sin, we have an advocate
with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours
only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 By this we know that we know him, if we obey his commandments.
4 When someone claims “I know him,” but does not obey his
commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever obeys his word, in him the love of God has been
perfected. By this we know that we are in him.
6 The one who claims to abide in him ought also to walk even
as he walked.
7 Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an
old commandment which you have had from the beginning, the
old commandment is the word which you already heard.
8 Yet, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him
and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true
light is already shining.
9 The one who claims he is in the light and hates his brother,
is still in the darkness even until now.
10 Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and there is
no cause of stumbling in him.
11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks
in the darkness, and does not know where he is going,
because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
12 I write to you, my dear children,
      because your sins are forgiven because of his name.
13 I write to you, fathers,
           because you know him who has been from the beginning.
      I write to you, young people,
          because you have overcome the evil one.
     I write to you, little children,
           because you know the Father.
14 I write to you, fathers,
           because you know him who has been from the beginning.
     I write to you, young people,
           because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
           and you have overcome the evil one.

15 Do not love the world, or the things that are in the world.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not
in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and
the lust of the eyes and the arrogance based on possessions,
is not from the Father, but is from the world.
17 Now the world is passing away, and its lusts, but the one
who does the will of God abides forever.

18 Little children, it is the last hour, and as you heard the
antichrist is coming. Even now many antichrists have already
arisen. This is how we know that it is the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us, for
if they had been part of us, they would have continued with us.
But they left us proving that they did not belong with us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have
knowledge.
21 I have not written to you because you do not know not
the truth, but because you know it, and you know no lie
comes from the truth.
22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the
Messiah? This is the antichrist: the one who denies the Father
and the Son.
23 Whoever denies the Son, does not have the Father. Whoever
confesses the Son also has the Father.
24 As for you, let what you heard from the beginning abide in
you. If what you heard from the beginning abides, in you, you
also will abide in the Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise that he promised us: life eternal.
26 These things have I written to you concerning those who
would lead you astray.
27 Now as for you, the anointing that you received from him
abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you.
But his anointing teaches you about all things, and is true,
and is not a lie. Just as you were taught, abide in him.

28 And now, my dear children, abide in him, so that when he
appears, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before
him at his coming.
29 If you know that he is righteous, you also know that
everyone who does righteousness has been born of him.
