Amplified Bible

1 John 1

Introduction, The Incarnate Word

1[I am writing about] what existed from the beginning, what [a]we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life [the One who existed even before the beginning of the world, Christ]— and the Life [an aspect of His being] was manifested, and we have seen [it as eyewitnesses] and testify and declare to you [the Life], the eternal Life who was [already existing] with the Father and was [actually] made visible to us [His followers]— what we have seen and heard we also proclaim to you, so that you too may have fellowship [as partners] with us. And indeed our fellowship [which is a distinguishing mark of born-again believers] is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. We are writing these things to you so that our joy [in seeing you included] may be made complete [by having you share in the joy of salvation].

God Is Light

This is the message [of God’s promised revelation] which we have heard from Him and now announce to you, that God is Light [He is holy, His message is truthful, He is perfect in righteousness], and in Him there is no darkness at all [no sin, no wickedness, no imperfection]. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness [of sin], we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we [really] walk in the Light [that is, live each and every day in conformity with the precepts of God], as He Himself is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another [He with us, and we with Him], and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin [by erasing the stain of sin, keeping us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations]. If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude ourselves and the truth is not in us. [His word does not live in our hearts.] If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose]. 10 If we say that we have not sinned [refusing to admit acts of sin], we make Him [out to be] a liar [by contradicting Him] and His word is not in us.

Ang Pulong Sa Dios

1 Juan 1:1-10

Ang Pulong nga Nagahatag ug Kinabuhi

1Siya nga anaa nang daan sa wala pa mamugna ang bisan unsa nga butang nadunggan ug nakita namo, ug nakagunit pa gani kami kaniya. Siya mao ang Pulong sa Dios nga naghatag ug kinabuhi nga walay kataposan. 2Siya nga tinubdan sa kinabuhi nga walay kataposan gipadayag, ug nakita namo. Gipamatud-an ug gisangyaw namo siya kaninyo. Uban siya sa Amahan, apan karon nagpakita siya kanamo. 3Gisugilon namo kaninyo ang among nakita ug nadungog aron aduna kitay panag-ambitay sa usag usa, ug sa Dios nga Amahan ug kang Jesu-Cristo nga iyang Anak. 4Busa gisulat namo kini kaninyo aron mahingpit ang atong kalipay.

Ang Pagkinabuhi Diha sa Kahayag

5Mao kini ang among nadunggan nga gitudlo ni Jesu-Cristo ug mao usab kini ang among gisangyaw kaninyo, nga ang Dios kahayag ug wala gayoy kangitngit diha kaniya. 6Busa kon moingon kita nga nakighiusa kita sa Dios, apan nagakinabuhi kita diha sa kangitngit, namakak kita, tungod kay wala kita nagakinabuhi sumala sa kamatuoran. 7Apan kon nagakinabuhi kita diha sa kahayag, ingon nga ang Dios kahayag, may panaghiusa kita, ug ang dugo ni Jesus nga Anak sa Dios nagahinlo kanato sa tanan natong mga kasal-anan.

8Kon moingon kita nga wala kitay sala, gilimbongan lang nato ang atong kaugalingon, ug wala kanato ang kamatuoran. 9Apan kon isulti nato sa Dios ang atong mga sala, kasaligan siya nga mopasaylo kanato sa atong mga sala ug sa paghinlo kanato sa tanan natong mga kalapasan. Buhaton niya kini tungod kay matarong siya. 10Kon moingon kita nga wala kita makasala, gihimo natong bakakon ang Dios, ug wala kanato ang iyang pulong.
