The New Commandment

1 John 2

7 1 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had i from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard 2 from the beginning. 8 Again, j a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, k because the darkness is passing away, and l the true light is already shining. 9 m He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 10 n He who loves his brother abides in the light, and o there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who p hates his brother is in darkness and q walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

12 I write to you, little children,
Because r your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.
13 I write to you, fathers,
Because you have known Him who is s from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
Because you have overcome the wicked one.
I write to you, little children,
Because you have t known the Father.
14 I have written to you, fathers,
Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men,
Because u you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
And you have overcome the wicked one.
