4Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and #Rom. 4:15; 1 John 5:17sin is lawlessness. 5And you know #1 John 1:2; 3:8that He was manifested #(Is. 53:5, 6); John 1:29; (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 9:26)to take away our sins, and #(2 Cor. 5:21); 1 John 2:29in Him there is no sin. 6Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.
