1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that you1 are1 a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that you1 dot, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you1, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus says3 unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you1, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto you1, You2 must be born again.
8 The wind blows3 where it lists3, and you1 heart the sound thereof, but cant not tell whence it comes3, and whither it goes3: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Are1 you1 a master of Israel, and knowt not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say unto you1, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and you2 receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and you2 believe not, how shall you2 believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man has3 ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believes3 in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes3 in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes3 on him is not condemned: but he that believes3 not is condemned already, because he has3 not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that does3 evil hates3 the light, neither comes3 to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that does3 truth comes3 to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with you1 beyond Jordan, to whom you1 barest witness, behold, the same baptizes3, and all men come to him.
27 John answered and said, a man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28 You2 yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29 He that has3 the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands3 and hears3 him, rejoices3 greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that comes3 from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks3 of the earth: he that comes3 from heaven is above all.
32 And what he has3 seen and heard, that he testifies3; and no man receives3 his testimony.
33 He that has3 received his testimony has3 set to his seal that God is true.
34 For he whom God has3 sent speaks3 the words of God: for God gives3 not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35 The Father loves3 the Son, and has3 given all things into his hand.
36 He that believes3 on the Son has3 everlasting life: and he that believes3 not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides3 on him.
