1Jn 1:1-10

NLT | Greek NT | Matchup | Interlinear | Reverse-Interlinear

1:1 We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning ,  *  whom we have heard and seen . We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands . He is the Word of life . 2   This one who is life itself was revealed to us , and we have seen him . And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life . He was with the Father , and then he was revealed to us . 3   We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us . And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son , Jesus Christ . 4   We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy .  *  5   This is the message we heard from Jesus  *  and now declare to you : God is light , and there is no darkness in him at all . 6   So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness ; we are not practicing the truth . 7   But if we are living in the light , as God is in the light , then we have fellowship with each other , and the blood of Jesus , his Son , cleanses us from all sin . 8   If we claim we have no sin , we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth . 9   But if we confess our sins to him , he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness . 10   If we claim we have not sinned , we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts . 1   ̔Ὸ ἦν ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς , ἀκηκόαμεν · ἑωράκαμεν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ἡμῶν ἐθεασάμεθα καὶ αἱ χεῖρες ἡμῶν ἐψηλάφησαν · περὶ τοῦ λόγου τῆς ζωῆς . 2   καὶ ζωὴ ἐφανερώθη , καὶ ἑωράκαμεν . καὶ μαρτυροῦμεν καὶ ἀπαγγέλλομεν ὑμῖν τὴν ζωὴν τὴν αἰώνιον . ἥτις ἦν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα , καὶ ἐφανερώθη ἡμῖν . 3   ἑωράκαμεν καὶ ἀκηκόαμεν ἀπαγγέλλομεν καὶ ὑμῖν ἵνα καὶ ὑμεῖς κοινωνίαν ἔχητε μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν . καὶ κοινωνία δὲ ἡμετέρα μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς καὶ μετὰ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ , Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ . 4   καὶ ταῦτα γράφομεν ἡμεῖς ἵνα χαρὰ [ ἡμῶν ] 13 πεπληρωμένη . 5   καὶ ἔστιν αὕτη ἀγγελία ἣν ἀκηκόαμεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναγγέλλομεν ὑμῖν · ὅτι θεὸς φῶς ἐστὶν , καὶ σκοτία οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν αὐτῷ οὐδεμία . 6   ἐὰν εἴπωμεν ὅτι κοινωνίαν ἔχομεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ σκότει περιπατῶμεν · ψευδόμεθα καὶ οὐ ποιοῦμεν τὴν ἀλήθειαν . 7   ἐὰν δὲ ἐν τῷ φωτὶ περιπατῶμεν , ὡς αὐτὸς ἔστιν ἐν τῷ φωτί , κοινωνίαν ἔχομεν μετ᾽ ἀλλήλων , καὶ τὸ αἷμα Ἰησοῦ , τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ , καθαρίζει ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ πάσης ἁμαρτίας . 8   ἐὰν εἴπωμεν ὅτι ἁμαρτίαν οὐκ ἔχομεν , ἑαυτοὺς πλανῶμεν καὶ ἀλήθεια οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν ἡμῖν . 9   ἐὰν ὁμολογῶμεν τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν , πιστός ἐστιν καὶ δίκαιος ἵνα ἀφῇ ἡμῖν τὰς ἁμαρτίας καὶ καθαρίσῃ ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ πάσης ἀδικίας . 10   ἐὰν εἴπωμεν ὅτι οὐχ ἡμαρτήκαμεν , ψεύστην ποιοῦμεν αὐτὸν καὶ λόγος αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν ἡμῖν .
