John 3:1–21

There was a man of the Pharisees, named aNicodemus, ba ruler of the Jews: aThe same came to Jesus cby night, and said unto him, dRabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do ethese miracles that thou doest, except fGod be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man gbe born ||hagain, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, hhHow can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of ijwater and of jthe Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. kThat which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. kkMarvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born ||again. lThe wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, mHow can these things be? 10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou na master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and otestify that we have seen; oand ye receive not our witness. 12 pIf I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And qno man hath ascended up to heaven, but rhe that came down from heaven, even the Son of man swhich is in heaven. 14 And tas Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so umust the Son of man wbe lifted up: 15 That xwhosoever believeth in him should not perish, but yhave eternal life. 16 For zGod so loved the world, that he agave his bonly begotten Son, that xwhosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For bbGod sent not his Son into the world cto condemn the world; dbut that the world through him might be saved. 18 eHe that believeth on him is not condemned: fbut he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the bonly begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that glight is come into the world, and men loved hdarkness irather than light, iibecause their deeds were evil. 20 For jevery one that kdoeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be ||lreproved. 21 But he that kdoeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
