1 John 3:21-22

Context
3:21 Dear friends, if our conscience does not condemn us, we have confidence in the presence of God, 3:22 and 1  whatever we ask we receive from him, because 2  we keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing to him.

1 tn The conjunction καί (kai) which begins 3:22 is epexegetical (explanatory), relating a further implication of the “confidence” (παρρησίαν, parrhsian) which believers have before God when their heart (conscience) does not condemn them. They can ask things of God with the expectation of receiving their requests.

2 tn The ὅτι (Joti) is clearly causal, giving the reason why believers receive what they ask.
