For God so loved the world
That He gave His only begotten Son,
That whoever believes in Him
Should not perish
But have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son
Into the world to condemn the world,
But that the world through Him might be saved.
He who believes in Him is not condemned;
But he who does not believe is condemned already,
Because he has not believed in the name
Of the only begotten Son of God.
He who believes in the Son
Has everlasting life,
And he who does not believe the Son
Shall not see life,
But the wrath of God abides on him.
