1 John 2:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor[a] with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. And he is the atoning sacrifice[b] for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:1 Greek παρακλητον: Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, and Comforter.
  2. 2:2 “atoning sacrifice” is from the Greek “ιλασμος”, an appeasing, propitiating, or the means of appeasement or propitiation—the sacrifice that turns away God’s wrath because of our sin.
