14  I write to you, fathers,

because you know shim who is from the beginning.

I write to you, young men,

because tyou are strong,

and the word of God abides in you,

and you have overcome the evil one.


24 Let mwhat you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then nyou too will abide in the Son and in the Father.


27 But qthe anointing that you received from him abides in you, and ryou have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and sis true, and is no liejust as it has taught you, abide in him.


sNo one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's1 seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.


24 rWhoever keeps his commandments abides in God,1 and God2 in him. And sby this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.


12 qNo one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and rhis love is perfected in us.
