“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loued darknesse rather then light, because their deedes were euill.”
King James Version (KJV)
16. ¶ For God so loued the world, that he gaue his only begotten Sonne: that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life. 17. For God sent not his Sonne into the world to condemne the world: but that the world through him might be saued. 18. ¶ He that beleeueth on him, is not condemned: but hee that beleeueth not, is condemned already, because hee hath not beleeued in the Name of the onely begotten Sonne of God. 19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loued darknesse rather then light, because their deedes were euill. 20. For euery one that doeth euill, hateth the light, neither commeth to the light, lest his deeds should be reproued. 21. But hee that doeth trueth, commeth to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. 22. ¶ After these things, came Iesus and his disciples into the land of Iudea, and there hee taried with them, and baptized.
