1 John 3:2

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
New King James Version

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we will be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
New American Standard Bible

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is.
New International Version

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears (or, when it is made known), we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
The Amplified Bible

Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Divinely loved ones, now born-ones of God we are. And not yet has it been made visible what we shall be. We know absolutely that whenever it is made visible, like ones to Him we shall be, because we shall see Him just as He is.
Phillips’ Modern English

Here and now, my dear friends, we are God’s children. We don’t know what we shall become in the future. We only know that when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is!
Williams’ Language of the People

Dearly beloved, we are now God’s children, but what we are going to be has not been unveiled. We know that if it is unveiled, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.
