John 3

1 Moreover there was a man out from the Pharisees, a ruler of the Jews, Nicodemus was a name given to him.

2 This one came toward Him of night and he said to Him, Rabbi, we know that away from God you have come and remain a teacher, for not even one is able to be doing these particular signs which You are doing if the God might not be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said to him, amen, amen, I am saying to you, if not a certain one might be generated from above, then he is not able to see the kingship of the God.

4 Nicodemus is saying toward Him, how is a man able to be generated while being an old man? He is not able to enter into his mother womb a second time and to be generated.

5 Jesus answered him, amen, amen, I am saying to you, if not a certain one might be generated out from water and Spirit, then he is not able to enter into the kingship of the God.

6 The thing which has been and remains generated out from the flesh is flesh, and the thing which has been and remains generated out from the Spirit is spirit.

7 You might not marvel that I said to you, it is necessary for you all to be generated from above.

8 The wind is blowing where it is desiring and the sound of it you are hearing, but you know not where it is coming and where it is going, so is everyone, the one who has been and remains generated out from the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, how are these things able to come to be?

10 Jesus answered and said to him, are you the teacher of the Israel and knowing not these things?

11 Amen, amen, I am saying to you, that which we know we are speaking, and which we have seen we are testifying, and our particular testimony you all are not receiving.

12 Since the earthly things we are speaking to you all and you all are not believing, how if I might speak to you all the heavenly things will you all believe?

13 And not even one has ascended into the heaven, except the One Who descended out from the heaven, the Son of the man.

14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so it is necessary for the Son of the man to be lifted up,

15 in order that everyone, the one who is believing, in Him may be having life continuous.

16 For the God so loved the world, that the Son, the only generated He gave, in order that everyone, the one who is believing into Him, might not destroy oneself, but may be having life continuous.

17 For the God did not send away the Son into the world in order that He might judge the world, but in order that the world may be saved through Him.

18 The one who is believing into Him is not being judged; but the one who is not believing has already been judged, because he has not believed into the name of the only generated Son of the God.

19 And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and the men loved the darkness more rather than the light; for their particular works were evil.

20 For everyone practicing the worthless things is hating the light, and is not coming toward the light, in order that his particular works might not be exposed;

21 But the one who is doing the truth is coming toward the light, in order that his particular works might be manifested that they are having been and remains worked in God.

22 After these things came the Jesus and His particular students into the Judea land, and there He was lingering with them and merging.

23 But the John was also merging in Aenon near the of Salim, because many water were there and they were coming and being merged;

24 For the John was not yet having been and remained cast into the prison.

25 Then came to be a question out from the students of John with a Jew concerning cleaning.

26 And they came toward the John and said to him; Rabbi, the One Who was with you beyond the Jordon, as to Whom you have testified, behold this One is merging and all are coming toward Him.

27 John answered and said, A man is not able to be receiving, not even one thing if not it might be, having been and remains given to him out from the heaven.

28 You all, yourselves, to me are witnesses that I said, [that] I am, I myself, not the Christ, but that having been and remains sent, I am before that One.

29 The one who is having the bride is a bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, the one who has stood and remains standing and hearing Him, with joy is rejoicing on account of the voice of the bridegroom. This then my particular joy, the one has been and remains fulfilled.

30 That One is necessary to be increasing, but I to be being decreased.

31 The One Who is coming from above is above all things; the one who is being out from the earth is out from the earth and out from the earth is speaking. The One Who is coming out from of the heaven [is above all things].

32 What He has seen and heard, this He is testifying, and His particular testimony not even one is receiving.

33 The one who receives His particular testimony seals that the God is true.

34 For Whom the God sent away, the sayings of the God is speaking, for not out from measure He is giving the Spirit.

35 The Father is loving the Son and has given all things in His particular hand.

36 The one who is believing into the Son is having life continuous; but the one who is disobeying to the Son will not see life, but the wrath of the God is remaining upon him.

(Changing word order is kept to a minimum.  Commas are added where I felt it was necessary to convey the meaning.  Words in italics are added for easier reading or implied.  The Greek article “the” is preserved and sometimes “particular” is used in place of “the.”  I know there are mistakes and I will correct as I find them.)
