John 3:22–36

22 After these things came Jesus and mhis disciples into nthe land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and obaptized. 23 And John also was baptizing in pÆnon near to pSalim, because there was much water there: qand they came, and were baptized. 24 For rJohn was not yet cast into prison. 25 Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about spurifying. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, tRabbi, he that was with thee ubeyond Jordan, xto whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. 27 John answered and said, A man can ||yreceive nothing, except zit be given him from heaven. 28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, aI am not the Christ, but bthat I am sent before him. 29 He that hath the bride is cthe bridegroom: but dthe friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, erejoiceth greatly because of fthe bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30 gHe must increase, but I must decrease. 31 hHe that cometh ifrom above kis above all: lhe that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: hhe that cometh lfrom heaven kis above all. 32 And what he hath mseen and nheard, that he testifieth; and ono man receiveth his testimony. 33 He that hath received his testimony phath set to his seal that qGod is true. 34 rFor he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit sby measure unto him. 35 tThe Father loveth the Son, and uhath given all things into his hand. 36 xHe that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
