11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 The one who has the Son has life.c The one who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 I have written these things to you who believe in the named of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

16 If anyone sees a fellow believerA committing a sin that doesn’t lead to death, he should ask, and God will give life to him—to those who commit sin that doesn’t lead to death. There is sinB that leads to death. I am not saying he should pray about that. 17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin that doesn’t lead to death.
18 We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the one who is born of God keeps him,C,i and the evil one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has comej and has given us understanding so that we may know the true one.D We are in the true one—that is, in his Son Jesus Christ.k He is the true God and eternal life.
