Melitz Yosher (Advocacy, helper, intercessor, intercedes, Propitiation, Parakletos) is that work of Yeshua Ha Mashiach for sinning set apart ones which He carries on with HA AV whereby, because of the eternal efficacy of His own sacrifice, He restores them to fellowship.

2:1 My little children(teknion, yeladim, infant), these things write I to you, that you sin not. And if any man sin, we have an Melitz Yosher (advocate) with Ha AVI, Yeshua (ישוע) Ha Mashiach ha Tzedak:

2:2 And he is the kapparah (atonement) for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole olam hazeh (world).

Believer's Assurance

2:3 And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His Mitzvot.

2:4 He that said, I know Him, and keeps not His Mitzvot, is a liar, and the emet is not in him.

2:5 But whoso shomer His word, in him truly is the love of Elohim perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him.

2:6 Who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

Exhortation for brotherly love

2:7 Brethren,  I write no new mitzvah (commandment) to you, but an old mitzvah (commandment) which you have had from the beginning. The old mitzvah (commandment) is the word which you heard from the beginning.

2:8 Again, a new mitzvah I write to you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and ha emet ohr now shines.

2:9 He that said he is in the light, and hates his achi, is in darkness even until now.

2:10 He that ahav his achi abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

2:11 He who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.


I write to you:- Little children (teknion, yeladim, infants)

because your sins are forgiven you for His Name's sake.


I write to you, Avot (fathers),

Because you have known him [that is] from the beginning.

I write to you:- Yunge Leit (Young men)

Because you have overcome the wicked one.

I write to you:- Little children (half grown, paidon, imature believer)

Because you have known Ha AVI.


I have written to you:- Avot

Because you know him who is from the beginning.

I write to you:- young men

Because you are strong, and the word of Elohim abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one.

2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of HaAvi is not in him.

2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of HaAvi, but is of the world.

2:17And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of Elohim abides forever.

Promise of everlasting life

2:18 Little children(half grown, paidon, imature believer), it is the last time: and as you have heard that anti-Mashiach shall come, even now are there many anti-Messiahs; whereby we know that it is the last time.

2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would [no doubt] have continued with us: but [they went out], that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

2:20 But you have an anointing from the Set apart One, and you know all things.

2:21 I have not written to you because you know not the emet, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the emet.

2:22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Yeshua (ישוע) is the Ha Mashiach? He is anti-Messiah, that denies Ha AVI and the BEN.

2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

2:24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.

2:25 And this is the promise that he has promised us, [even] Chayim Olam.

2:26 These [things] have I written to you concerning them that deceive you.

2:27 But the messianic anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same messianic anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

2:28 And now, little children (teknion, new born), abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at His coming.

2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of Him.
