Ch 3 John

John 3

3:1 Now there was a man among the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews.
3:2 He went to Jesus at night, et dixit ad eum:: "Rabbi, we know that you have arrived as a teacher from God. For no one would be able to accomplish these signs, which you accomplish, unless God were with him.”
3:3 Respondit Iesus, et dixit ei:, "Amen, amen, Dico autem vobis,, unless one has been reborn anew, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.”
3:4 Nicodemus said to him: “How could a man be born when he is old? quia, he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be reborn?"
3:5 Respondit Iesus: "Amen, amen, Dico autem vobis,, unless one has been reborn by water and the Holy Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.
3:6 What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7 You should not be amazed that I said to you: You must be born anew.
3:8 The Spirit inspires where he wills. And you hear his voice, but you do not know where he comes from, or where he is going. So it is with all who are born of the Spirit.”
3:9 Nicodemus responded and said to him, “How are these things able to be accomplished?"
3:10 Respondit Iesus, et dixit ei:: “You are a teacher in Israel, and you are ignorant of these things?
3:11 Amen, amen, Dico autem vobis,, that we speak about what we know, and we testify about what we have seen. But you do not accept our testimony.
3:12 If I have spoken to you about earthly things, and you have not believed, then how will you believe, if I will speak to you about heavenly things?
3:13 Et nemo ascendit in caelum;, nisi qui descendit de caelo: Filius hominis qui est in caelo.
3:14 Et sicut Moyses exaltavit serpentem in deserto, ita exaltari oportet Filium hominis,
3:15 ut omnis qui credit in ipsum non pereat,, sed habeat vitam aeternam.
3:16 Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret:, ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat, sed habeat vitam aeternam.
3:17 Non enim misit Deus Filium suum in mundum, ut judicet mundum,, sed ut salvetur mundus per ipsum.
3:18 Whoever believes in him is not judged. But whoever does not believe is already judged, because he does not believe in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the judgment: that the Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness more than light. For their works were evil.
3:20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light and does not go toward the Light, so that his works may not be corrected.
3:21 But whoever acts in truth goes toward the Light, so that his works may be manifested, because they have been accomplished in God.”
3:22 Quæ postquam gesta sunt, Jesus and his disciples went into the land of Judea. And he was living there with them and baptizing.
3:23 Now John was also baptizing, at Aenon near Salim, because there was much water in that place. And they were arriving and being baptized.
3:24 For John had not yet been cast into prison.
3:25 Then a dispute occurred between the disciples of John and the Jews, about purification.
3:26 And they went to John and said to him: "Rabbi, the one who was with you across the Jordan, about whom you offered testimony: ecce, he is baptizing and everyone is going to him.”
3:27 John responded and said: “A man is not able to receive anything, unless it has been given to him from heaven.
3:28 You yourselves offer testimony for me that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but that I have been sent before him.
3:29 He who holds the bride is the groom. But the friend of the groom, who stands and listens to Him, rejoices joyfully at the voice of the groom. Itaque, haec, my joy, has been fulfilled.
3:30 He must increase, while I must decrease.
3:31 Qui desursum venit,, super omnia est. Qui est ex inferis, Est terrae, et de terra loquitur. Qui de caelo venit, super omnes est.
3:32 Et quod vidit, et audivit, de quo ipse testatur. Et testimonium eius nemo accipit.
3:33 Qui accepit testimonium eius, signavit quia Deus verax est.
3:34 Quem enim misit Deus verba Dei loquitur. Deus enim non dat ad spiritum ad mensuram.
3:35 Pater enim diligit Filium, et omnia dedit in manu eius.
3:36 Qui credit in Filium habet vitam aeternam. Qui autem incredulus est Filio, non videbit vitam; sed ira Dei manet super eum. "
