Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born (A)of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (B)That which is born of the flesh is (C)flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.[a] (D)Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You[b] must be born (E)again.’ (F)The wind[c] blows (G)where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
