1 John 3:9

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
New King James Version

Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
New American Standard Bible

No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
New International Version

No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
The Amplified Bible

No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Everyone who has been born out of God with the present result that he is a born-one of God does not habitually commit sin because He has been born with the present result that he is a born-one of God.
Phillips’ Modern English

The man who is really God’s son does not practice sin, for God’s nature is in him, for good, and such an heredity is incapable of sin.
Williams’ Language of the People

No one who is born of God makes a practice of sinning, because the God-given life-principle (Greek, seed) continues to live in him, and so he cannot practice sinning, because he is born of God.
