Джон 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, і сказав йому: "Рабин, 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 Ісус відповів і сказав йому:, "Амінь, амінь, Я говорю вам,, 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? Звичайно, he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be reborn?"
3:5 Ісус відповів: "Амінь, амінь, Я говорю вам,, 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 Ісус відповів і сказав йому:: “You are a teacher in Israel, and you are ignorant of these things?
3:11 Амінь, амінь, Я говорю вам,, 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 І ніхто не сходив на небо, крім того, хто спустився з небес: Людський Син, що на небесах.
3:14 І, як Мойсей підніс змія в пустині, так і повинно Син Людський буде піднесений,
3:15 так що той, хто вірить у Нього, не загинув,, але мав життя вічне.
3:16 Бо так полюбив Бог світ, що віддав Сина Свого Єдинородного Сина, так що всі, хто вірить у Нього, не загинув,, але мав життя вічне.
3:17 Бог не послав Свого Сина на світ,, для того, щоб судити світ, але для того, щоб світ спасся через Нього.
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 Після цих речей, 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: "Рабин, the one who was with you across the Jordan, about whom you offered testimony: ось, 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. І так, це, my joy, has been fulfilled.
3:30 He must increase, while I must decrease.
3:31 He who comes from above, is above everything. He who is from below, is of the earth, and he speaks about the earth. He who comes from heaven is above everything.
3:32 And what he has seen and heard, about this he testifies. And no one accepts his testimony.
3:33 Whoever has accepted his testimony has certified that God is truthful.
3:34 For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God. For God does not give the Spirit by measure.
3:35 The Father loves the Son, and he has given everything into his hand.
3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life. But whoever is unbelieving toward the Son shall not see life; instead the wrath of God remains upon him.”
