New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
19 Their judgment is based on this fact: The light from heaven came into the world, but they loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions 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 They hate the light because they want to sin in the darkness. They stay away from the light for fear their sins will be exposed and they will be punished. 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 those who do what is right come to the light gladly, so everyone can see that they are doing what God wants." 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."
