3 Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is 1aborn anew, he cannot 2see the 3bkingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?
5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is aborn 1of 2water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is aborn 1of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born 1of the 2Spirit is 2spirit.
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, 1You must be born anew.
8 The 1awind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from and where it goes; so is everyone who is born 2of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said to him, You are a teacher of Israel, and you do not know these things?
11 Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak that which we know and atestify of that which we have seen, and yet you do not receive our testimony.
12 If I told you of the 1things on earth and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of the 1things in heaven?
13 And ano one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended out of heaven, the bSon of Man, 1who is in heaven.
14 And as aMoses blifted up the 1serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15 That every one who believes into Him may have 1eternal life.
16 For God so aloved the 1world that He bgave His conly begotten Son, that every one who 2dbelieves into Him would not perish, but would have eternal life.
17 For God did not send the Son into the world to 1condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
