This is the verdict: Light1 has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.2
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.3
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."
