7Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. 8Everyone who commits sin is a child of the devil; for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 9Those who have been born of God do not sin, because Gods seed abides in them;* they cannot sin, because they have been born of God. 10The children of God and the children of the devil are revealed in this way: all who do not do what is right are not from God, nor are those who do not love their brothers and sisters.*
35 The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, 36and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, Look, here is the Lamb of God! 37The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. 38When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, What are you looking for? They said to him, Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are you staying? 39He said to them, Come and see. They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four oclock in the afternoon. 40One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peters brother. 41He first found his brother Simon and said to him, We have found the Messiah (which is translated Anointed*). 42He brought Simon* to Jesus, who looked at him and said, You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas (which is translated Peter*).
1 Sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvellous things.
8 Let the sea thunder and all that fills it,
the world and all that dwell upon it.
9 Let the rivers clap their hands
and let the hills ring out together before the Lord,
for he comes to judge the earth.
10 In righteousness shall he judge the world
and the peoples with equity.
