“If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:29 Every one - And none else. Who practiseth righteousness - From a believing, loving heart. Is born of him - For all his children are like himself.
1Jo 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous. A life of righteousness shows that we have the life of Christ, and hence is proof that we have been "born of him".
