15 I gdo not ask that you htake them out of the world, but that you ikeep them from jthe evil one.1


16 In all circumstances take up uthe shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all vthe flaming darts of wthe evil one;


But nthe Lord is faithful. He will establish you and oguard you against pthe evil one.1


13  I am writing to you, fathers,

because you know shim who is from the beginning.

I am writing to you, young men,

because tyou have overcome the evil one.

I write to you, children,

because uyou know the Father.

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.


12 We should not be like xCain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? yBecause his own deeds were evil and his brother's righteous.


18 We know that neveryone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but ohe who was born of God pprotects him, and the evil one does not touch him.

19 We know that we are from God, and qthe whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
