2 This life came to earth. We saw him, and we know about him. And we tell you about this life that lives for ever. This life was with the Father and came to us.
3 We tell you also what we have seen and heard. We tell you so that you also will belong with us. And we belong with the Father and the Son.
4 We write these things to you so that we all will be very happy.
