1 Juan 1:1-10

Ang Salitang Nagbibigay ng Buhay na Walang Hanggan

1Ipinapahayag namin sa inyo ang tungkol sa kanya na mula pa sa simula ay nariyan na.1:1 nariyan na: o, nabubuhay na. Narinig namin siya, nakitaʼt napagmasdan ng sarili naming mga mata, at nahawakan pa namin siya. Siya ang Salita ng Dios na nagbibigay ng buhay na walang hanggan. 2Siya na pinagmumulan ng buhay na walang hanggan ay nahayag at aming nakita. Pinapatotohanan at ipinapahayag namin siya sa inyo, na sa simulaʼt simula pa ay kasama na ng Ama, at nagpakita sa amin. 3Ipinapahayag namin sa inyo ang nakita at narinig namin upang maging kaisa namin kayo sa Ama at sa kanyang Anak na si Jesu-Cristo. 4Isinusulat namin ito upang malubos ang aming1:4 aming: o, ating. kagalakan.

Ang Pamumuhay sa Liwanag

5Ito ang mensaheng narinig namin mula kay Jesu-Cristo at ipinapahayag naman namin sa inyo: Ang Dios ay liwanag at sa kanya ay walang anumang kadiliman. 6Kung sinasabi nating may pakikiisa tayo sa kanya ngunit namumuhay naman tayo sa kadiliman, nagsisinungaling tayo at hindi namumuhay nang ayon sa katotohanan. 7Ngunit kung namumuhay tayo sa liwanag, tulad ng Dios na nasa liwanag, may pagkakaisa tayo, at nililinis tayo ng dugo ni Jesus na kanyang Anak sa lahat ng kasalanan.

8Kung sinasabi nating wala tayong kasalanan, dinadaya natin ang ating sarili at wala sa atin ang katotohanan. 9Ngunit kung ipinagtatapat natin sa Dios ang ating mga kasalanan, maaasahan nating patatawarin niya ang ating mga kasalanan at lilinisin tayo sa lahat ng uri ng kasamaan dahil matuwid siya. 10Kung sinasabi nating wala tayong kasalanan, ginagawa nating sinungaling ang Dios, at wala sa atin ang kanyang salita.

1 John 1:1-10

The Word of Life Became a Human Being

1Here is what we announce to everyone about the Word of life. The Word was already here from the beginning. We have heard him. We have seen him with our eyes. We have looked at him. Our hands have touched him. 2This life has appeared. We have seen him. We are witnesses about him. And we announce to you this same eternal life. He was already with the Father. He has appeared to us. 3We announce to you what we have seen and heard. We do it so you can share life together with us. And we share life with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We are writing this to make our joy complete.

Walking in the Light

5Here is the message we have heard from him and announce to you. God is light. There is no darkness in him at all. 6Suppose we say that we share life with God but still walk in the darkness. Then we are lying. We are not living out the truth. 7But suppose we walk in the light, just as he is in the light. Then we share life with one another. And the blood of Jesus, his Son, makes us pure from all sin.

8Suppose we claim we are without sin. Then we are fooling ourselves. The truth is not in us. 9But God is faithful and fair. If we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins. He will forgive every wrong thing we have done. He will make us pure. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar. His word is not in us.
