“But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:11 He that hateth his brother - And he must hate, if he does not love him: there is no medium. Is in darkness - In sin, perplexity, entanglement. He walketh in darkness, and knoweth not that he is in the high road to hell.
1Jo 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness. He who hates is not following Christ, the Light, and hence walks in the darkness, hence that darkness hath blinded his eyes. He cannot see the dangers that beset him on account of the darkness.
