I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, Give thanks to the God of gods, For His lovingkindness is everlasting…
