My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. (I John 2:1 KJV)
advocate1 – 3875 parakletos – “summoned; called to one’s side, especially to one’s aid
– one who pleads another’s cause before a judge; counsel for defense
– an intercessor”
