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.

1 Ioan 1

Cuvântul vieţii

1Ceea ce era de la început, ceea ce am auzit, ceea ce am văzut cu ochii noştri, ceea ce am privit şi ceea ce mâinile noastre au atins cu privire la Cuvântul vieţii căci viaţa a fost arătată, iar noi am văzut-o şi depunem mărturie şi vă vestim viaţa veşnică care era cu Tatăl şi care ne-a fost arătată – deci ceea ce am văzut şi am auzit, aceea vă vestim şi vouă, ca şi voi să aveţi părtăşie cu noi. Şi părtăşia noastră este cu Tatăl şi cu Fiul Său, Isus Cristos. Scriem aceste lucruri pentru ca bucuria noastră[a] să fie deplină.

Umblând în lumină

Mesajul pe care l-am auzit de la El şi pe care vi-l vestim este că Dumnezeu e lumină şi în El nu este întuneric deloc. Dacă spunem că avem părtăşie cu El, dar umblăm în întuneric, minţim şi nu trăim adevărul. Dacă însă umblăm în lumină, după cum El este în lumină, avem părtăşie unii cu alţii, iar sângele lui Isus, Fiul Său, ne curăţeşte de orice păcat. Dacă zicem că nu avem păcat, ne înşelăm singuri şi adevărul nu este în noi. Dacă ne mărturisim păcatele, El este credincios şi drept ca să ne ierte păcatele şi să ne curăţească de orice nedreptate. 10 Dacă zicem că n-am păcătuit, Îl facem mincinos, şi Cuvântul Lui nu este în noi.
