5 lThis is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that mGod is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 nIf we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we owalk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and pthe blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we qconfess our sins, He is rfaithful and just to forgive us our sins and to scleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we tmake Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
