19 We know that we are 1of God, and the 2whole aworld 3lies in the 4bevil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has 1acome and has given us an 2bunderstanding that we might 3know 4Him who is 5ctrue; and we are 6in Him who is true, 7in His Son Jesus Christ. 8This is the dtrue God and eeternal life.
