3:1 Behold: what manner of love that Ha AVI has bestowed upon us, that we should be called ha benai Elohim: therefore ha olam hazeh knows us not, because it knew Him not.
3:2 Beloved: now we are children of Elohim; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
3:3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
3:4 Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the Torah: for sin is the transgression of the Torah.
3:5 And you know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
3:6 Whosoever abides in him sins not: whosoever sins has not seen him, neither known him.
3:7 Little children: (teknion, yeladim, infants)
let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.
3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the BEN Elohim was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the adversary (devil).
3:9 Whosoever has been born of Elohim does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of Elohim.
3:10 In this the Benai Elohim are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of Elohim, neither he that ahav not his achi.
3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should ahav one another.
3:12 Not as Kayin, [who] was of that wicked one, and slew his achi. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were ra'ah, and his brother's righteous.
3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if ha olam hazeh (people, world, kosmos) hate you.
3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we ahav the brethren. He that ahav not [his] achi abides in death.
3:15 Whosoever hates his achi is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has Chayim Olam abiding in him.
3:16 Hereby perceive we the ahav [of Elohim], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the achim.
3:17 But whosoever has material possessions and sees his archi (brother) in need but closes his heart (bowels) [of compassion] from him, how does the ahav Elohim abide in him?
3:18 My little children: (teknion, yeladim, infants)
Let us not ahav in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in emet.
3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the emet (truth), and shall assure our hearts before him.
3:20 For if our heart condemn us, Elohim is greater than our heart, and knows all things.
3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward Elohim.
3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep His Mitzvot, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
3:23 And this is his mitzvah, That we should believe on the Name of His SON Yeshua (ישוע) ha Mashiach, and love one another, as he gave us mitzvah.
3:24 And he that keeps His Mitzvot dwells in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abides in us, by the Ruach which he has given us.
