1 John 2 in NASB

Before I learned that the purpose of the New American Standard Bible is to translate literally from the original languages word by word into English, I found it tough to work through. Now I find it a useful starting point for serious study of any chapter in the Bible. Additionally, it provides extensive cross references for further reading.

No matter the translation, John makes it clear that he's writing this passage so that his readers will choose not to sin.

Lord, please allow your Word to work through me and prevent me from sinning, despite my natural tendency to do the wrong thing.
