Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
New King James Version

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
New American Standard Bible

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.
New International Version

If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.
The Amplified Bible

If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother [in Christ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

If anyone says, I am constantly loving God, and is as constantly hating his brother [Christian] whom he has seen with discernment and at present has with the range of his vision, God whom he has not seen with discernment and at present does not have within the range of his vision he is not able to be loving.
Phillips’ Modern English

If a man says, “I love God” and hates his brother, he is a liar. For if he does not love the brother before his eyes how can he love the One beyond his sight?
Williams’ Language of the People

If anyone says, “I love God,” and yet habitually hates his brother, he is a liar; for whoever does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
