English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God." 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
