3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

3:4 Nicodemus saith 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?

3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

3:8 The 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.

3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?

3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven.

3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
ina paV o pisteuwn eiV auton mh apolhtai all ech zwhn aiwnion
3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
outwV gar hgaphsen o qeoV ton kosmon wste ton uion autou ton monogenh edwken ina paV o pisteuwn eiV auton mh apolhtai all ech zwhn aiwnion
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
ou gar apesteilen o qeoV ton uion autou eiV ton kosmon ina krinh ton kosmon all ina swqh o kosmoV di autou
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
o pisteuwn eiV auton ou krinetai o de mh pisteuwn hdh kekritai oti mh pepisteuken eiV to onoma tou monogenouV uiou tou qeou
3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
auth de estin h krisiV oti to fwV elhluqen eiV ton kosmon kai hgaphsan oi anqrwpoi mallon to skotoV h to fwV hn gar ponhra autwn ta erga
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
paV gar o faula prasswn misei to fwV kai ouk ercetai proV to fwV ina mh elegcqh ta erga autou
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
o de poiwn thn alhqeian ercetai proV to fwV ina fanerwqh autou ta erga oti en qew estin eirgasmena
3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

3:22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.

3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all [men] come to him.

3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

3:28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

3:30 He must increase, but I [must] decrease.

3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

3:32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him].

3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
