1 ዮሐንስ 1:1-10

የሕይወት ቃል

1ስለ ሕይወት ቃል ከመጀመሪያው የነበረውን፣ የሰማነውን፣ በዐይኖቻችን ያየነውን፣ የተመለከትነውንና እጆቻችን የዳሰሱትን እንናገራለን። 2ሕይወት ተገለጠ፤ እኛም አይተነዋል፤ እንመሰክርለታለንም። በአብ ዘንድ የነበረውን፣ ለእኛም የተገለጠልንን የዘላለም ሕይወት እንነግራችኋለን፤ 3እናንተም ከእኛ ጋር ኅብረት እንዲኖራችሁ፣ ያየነውንና የሰማነውን እንነግራችኋለን፤ ኅብረታችንም ከአብ፣ ከልጁም ከኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጋር ነው። 4ደስታችንም1፥4 አንዳንዶች ቅጆች የእናንተ ይላል ፍጹም ይሆን ዘንድ ይህን እንጽፍላችኋለን።

በብርሃን መመላለስ

5ከእርሱ የሰማነው ለእናንተም የምንነግራችሁ መልእክት፣ እግዚአብሔር ብርሃን ነው፤ ጨለማም በእርሱ ዘንድ ከቶ የለም፤ የሚል ነው። 6በጨለማ እየተመላለስን ከእርሱ ጋር ኅብረት አለን ብንል እንዋሻለን፤ እውነትንም አንኖረውም። 7ነገር ግን እርሱ በብርሃን እንዳለ፣ እኛም በብርሃን ብንመላለስ እርስ በእርሳችን ኅብረት አለን፤ የልጁም የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ደም ከኀጢአት ሁሉ1፥7 ወይም ከማንኛውም ያነጻናል።

8ኀጢአት የለብንም ብንል፣ ራሳችንን እናስታለን፤ እውነትም በእኛ ውስጥ የለም። 9ኀጢአታችንን ብንናዘዝ ኀጢአታችንን ይቅር ሊለን፣ ከዐመፃ ሁሉ ሊያነጻን እርሱ ታማኝና ጻድቅ ነው። 10ኀጢአት አልሠራንም ብንል፣ እርሱን ሐሰተኛ እናደርገዋለን፤ ቃሉም በእኛ ውስጥ የለም።

1 John 1:1-10

The Incarnation of the Word of Life

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make our1:4 Some manuscripts your joy complete.

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness

5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all1:7 Or every sin.

8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
