1 John 2:3-4
And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him,

What shall I do with you, O Judah? Your love is like a morning cloud, like the dew that goes early away.
