Greek: Ὃς ἐὰν ὁμολογήσῃ ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἐστιν ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ, ὁ θεὸς ἐν αὐτῷ μένει καὶ αὐτὸς ἐν τῷ θεῷ.
Transliterated Greek: Hos ean homologēsē hoti Iēsous estin ho huios tou theou, ho theos en autō menei kai autos en tō theō.
Literal Word for Word Translation: Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God resides in him and he in God.
Vocab: ἐὰν ὁμολογήσῃ, ean homologēsē, if he should confess.
Commentary: Again, the only way anyone will confess that Jesus is the Son of God and mean it is that he is indwelled by the Holy Spirit. The confessor also resides in God in that he being united to Christ through faith becomes one with God.
