6. Hƿā bītt on Him ne ȝylteþ. Hƿā ȝylteþ næfþ Hine ȝeseƿen, ne Hine cnāƿeþ.

7. Cildru, ne lǣtaþ nān mann merran ēoƿic. Hē se dēþ rihtƿīsnesse is rihtƿīs, sƿā sƿā Hē is rihtƿīs.

8. Hē se þe ȝylteþ is þæs Dēofles, for þȳ se Dēoful hæfþ ȝylted ā siþþan þǣm onȝinne. For þissum se Sunu Ȝodes ƿæs ætīeƿed, sƿā þæt hē forcƿelle þā ƿeorc þæs Dēofoles.

10. Lufu is þus: ne þæt ƿē lufien Ȝod, ac þæt Hē lofude ūsic, and ȝesende his Sunu tō þǣm bētendan lāce ƿiþ ūra synna.

11. Lēofas, ȝif Ȝod lufode ūsic þus, ƿē ēac sƿā scoldon lufian ǣlc ōðerne.

13. Þurh þis ƿē cnāƿaþ þæt ƿē abīden on Him and hē on ūs, for þȳ þe Hē hæfþ ūs of His Ȝāste ȝifen.

14. Ƿē habbaþ ȝeseƿen and acȳðaþ þæt se Fæder hafaþ ȝesent þone Sunu tō þǣm Hǣliende eallre þǣre ƿorulde.

15. Hƿā andeteþ þæt Iesus is se Sunu Ȝodes, on him abītt Ȝod, and hē on Ȝode is.

16. Ƿē cnāƿaþ and habbaþ ȝelīefed þā lufe þā ūs ȝeaf Ȝod. Ȝod lufu is, and hē se abītt on lufe abītt on Ȝode, and on him abītt Ȝod.

17. On þissum hafaþ lufu ȝeƿorden fulfyled onȝemanȝ ūre, þæt ƿē mihten byldo on þǣm dōmdæȝe habban, for þǣm þē sƿā hē is, sƿā sind ƿē on þisre ƿorulde.

19. Ƿē lufiaþ Hine, for þǣm hē ǣrost ūsic lufode.

20. Ȝif mann secȝe, "Ic lufie Ȝod," and hatie his brōðor, hē is lēasiend; for þȳ þe hē þe ne lufaþ his brōðor þone hē ȝeseƿen hafaþ, hū cann hē Ȝod lufian, þe hē nafaþ ȝeseƿen?

17. Eall unrihtƿīsness is synn, and þǣr is synn ne lǣdende tō dēaðe.

18. Ƿē cnāƿaþ þæt hƿā of Ȝode ȝeboren is ne ȝylteþ, ac hē se þe ƿæs ȝeboren fram Ȝode healdeþ selfne, and se Yfela ne hnīȝþ hine.

19. Ƿē cnāƿaþ þæt ƿē sind Ȝodes, and sēo fulle ƿoruld liȝþ on þǣm ȝeƿealde þæs Yfelan.

20. Ƿē cnāƿaþ þæt se Sunu Ȝodes ȝecomen hæfþ, and hafaþ ȝeȝifen ūs andȝiet, sƿā þæt ƿē cnāƿaþ Hine þe sōþ is, and ƿē sind on Him se sōþ is, on His Suna Iesus Crīste. Þes is se sōða Ȝod, and ēcelīc līf.

21. Cildru, healdaþ ēoƿic selfe fram ȝodȝyldum.
