14 And (A)as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man (B)be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes (C)in him (D)may have eternal life.[a]

For God So Loved the World

16 “For (E)God so loved (F)the world,[b] (G)that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not (H)perish but have eternal life. 17 For (I)God did not send his Son into the world (J)to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 (K)Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not (L)believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 (M)And this is the judgement: (N)the light has come into the world, and (O)people loved the darkness rather than the light because (P)their works were evil. 20 (Q)For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, (R)lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever (S)does what is true (T)comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
