And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nicodemus by name, a prince of the Jews.
And he came to Jesus by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know, that thou art come from God a master [Rabbi, we know, for of God thou hast come a master]; for no man may do these signs, that thou doest, but God be with him.
Jesus answered, and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to thee, but a man be born again, he may not see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus said to him [Nicodemus saith to him], How may a man be born, when he is old? whether he may enter again into his mother's womb, and be born again?
Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to thee, but a man be born again of water, and of the Holy Ghost, he may not enter into the kingdom of God.
That that is born of the flesh, is flesh; and that that is born of the Spirit, is spirit.
Wonder thou not, for I said to thee, It behooveth you to be born again.
The Spirit breatheth where he will, and thou hearest his voice, but thou knowest not, from whence he cometh, nor whither he goeth; so is each man that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered, and said to him, How may these things be done [How be these things able to be done]?
Jesus answered, and said to him, Thou art a master in Israel, and knowest not these things? [Jesus answered, and said to him, Art thou a master in Israel, and knowest not these things?]
Truly, truly, I say to thee, for we speak that that we know, and we witness that that we have seen, and ye take not our witnessing.
If I have said to you earthly things, and ye believe not, how if I say to you heavenly things, shall ye believe?
And no man ascendeth [up] into heaven, but he that came down from heaven, man's Son that is in heaven. [And no man ascendeth into heaven, no but he that came down from heaven, the Son of man which is in heaven.]
And as Moses areared a serpent in desert [And as Moses reared up a serpent in desert], so it behooveth man's Son to be raised [up],
that each man that believeth in him, perish not, but have everlasting life.
For God loved so the world [Forsooth God so loved the world], that he gave his one begotten Son, that each man that believeth in him perish not, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world, that he judge the world, but that the world be saved by him.
He that believeth in him, is not deemed; but he that believeth not, is now deemed [He that believeth into him is not deemed, or condemned; forsooth he that believeth not, is now condemned], for he believeth not in the name of the one begotten Son of God.
And this is the doom, for light came into the world, and men loved more darknesses than light; for their works were evil.
For each man that doeth evil, hateth the light; and he cometh not to the light [and cometh not to the light], that his works be not reproved.
But he that doeth truth, cometh to the light, that his works be showed, that they be done in God.
