John 3
1There was a man of the P’rushim (Pharisee [separatist]s) [separatists], named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]:
2The same came to Yeshua [God is Salvation] by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that youi are a teacher come from God-The Father: for no man can do these miracles that youi do, except God-The Father be with him.
3Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said unto him, Truly, truly, I say unto youi, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God-The Father.
4Nicodemus says unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered, Truly, truly, I say unto youi, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit [Ruach], he cannot enter into the kingdom of God-The Father.
6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit [Ruach] is Spirit [Ruach].
7Marvel not that I said unto youi, You2f must be born again.
8The wind blows where it lists, and youi hear the sound thereof, but can not tell from what place it comes, and to which it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit [Ruach].
9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
10Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said unto him, Are youi a master of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God], and know not these things?
11Truly, truly, I say unto youi, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and you2f receive not our witness.
12If I have told you earthly things, and you2f believe not, how shall you2f believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?
13And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of Man which is in heaven.
14And as Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up:
15That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16For God-The Father so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17For God-The Father sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God-The Father.
19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21But he that does tcomes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God-The Father.
22After these things came Yeshua [God is Salvation] and his disciples into the land of Y’hudah [praised]; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23And Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] also was baptizing in Einayim [springs] near to Shalem [peace], because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24For Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] was not yet cast into prison.
25Then there arose a question between [some] of Yochanan [Yehovah has graced]’s disciples and the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] about purifying.
26And they came unto Yochanan [Yehovah has graced], and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with youi beyond Yarden [descender], to whom youi barest witness, behold, the same baptizes, and all [men] come to him.
27Yochanan [Yehovah has graced] answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28You2f yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Moshiach [Messiah], but that I am sent before him.
29He that has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30He must increase, but I [must] decrease.
31He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all.
32And what he has seen and heard, that he testifies; and no man receives his testimony.
33He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that God-The Father is true.
34For he whom God-The Father has sent speaks the words of God-The Father: for God-The Father gives not the Spirit [Ruach] by measure [unto him].
35The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand.
36He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God-The Father abides on him.
