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.

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.
