“Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:21 If our heart condemn us not - If our conscience, duly enlightened by the word and Spirit of God, and comparing all our thoughts, words, and works with that word, pronounce that they agree therewith. Then have we confidence toward God - Not only our consciousness of his favour continues and increases, but we have a full persuasion, that whatsoever we ask we shall receive of him.
1Jo 3:21 If our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward God. Then we have a conscience void of offense before God and are assured that he will hear us.
