Jn 3:1-36, (KJV)
1  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9  Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
10  Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
12  If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
22  After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23  And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24  For John was not yet cast into prison.
25  Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26  And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
27  John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
28  Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29  He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30  He must increase, but I must decrease.
31  He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
32  And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
33  He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
34  For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35  The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Jn 3:1-36, (MKJV)
1  And there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
2  He came to Jesus by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles which you do unless God is with him.
3  Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4  Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb and be born?
5  Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7  Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again.
8  The Spirit breathes where He desires, and you hear His voice, but you do not know from where He comes, and where He goes; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
9  Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?
10  Jesus answered and said to him, Are you the teacher of Israel and do not know these things?
11  Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what we know and testify what we have seen. And you do not receive our witness.
12  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how shall you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
13  And no one has ascended up to Heaven except He who came down from Heaven, the Son of man who is in Heaven.
14  But even as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up,
15  so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
16  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.
17  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him.
18  He who believes on 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.
19  And this is the condemnation, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil.
20  For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
21  But he who practices truth comes to the Light so that his works may be revealed, that they exist, having been worked in God.
22  After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea. And He stayed there with them and baptized.
23  And John was also baptizing in Enon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.
24  For John had not yet been cast into prison.
25  Then a question from John's disciples arose with the Jews about purification.
26  And they came to John and said to him, Rabbi, He who was with you beyond Jordan, to whom you bore witness, behold, He baptizes, and all come to Him!
27  And John answered and said, A man can receive nothing unless it is given to him from Heaven.
28  You yourselves bear witness to me that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him.
29  He who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom who stands and hears him rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Then my joy is fulfilled.
30  He must increase, but I must decrease.
31  He who comes from above is above all; he who is from the earth is earthly and speaks from the earth. He who comes from Heaven is above all,
32  and what He has seen and heard, that He testifies, and no one receives His testimony.
33  He who has received His testimony has set his seal to this, that God is true.
34  For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.
35  The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.
36  He who believes on the Son has everlasting life, and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides upon him.

Jn 3:1-36, (NASB)
1  Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews;
2  this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3  Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom 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 born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6  "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7  "Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
8  "The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
9  Nicodemus said to Him, "How can these things be?"
10  Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel and do not understand these things?
11  "Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.
12  "If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
13  "No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.
14  "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
15  so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.
16  "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17  "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18  "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19  "This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
20  "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
21  "But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
22  After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He was spending time with them and baptizing.
23  John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized
24  for John had not yet been thrown into prison.
25  Therefore there arose a discussion on the part of John's disciples with a Jew about purification.
26  And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified, behold, He is baptizing and all are coming to Him."
27  John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given him from heaven.
28  "You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, 'I have been sent ahead of Him.'
29  "He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. So this joy of mine has been made full.
30  "He must increase, but I must decrease.
31  "He who comes from above is above all, he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.
32  "What He has seen and heard, of that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony.
33  "He who has received His testimony has set his seal to this, that God is true.
34  "For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure.
35  "The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.
36  "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

Jn 3:1-36, (LITV)
1  But there was a man from the Pharisees, Nicodemus his name, a ruler of the Jews.
2  This one came to Jesus by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that You have come as a teacher from God. For no one is able to do these miraculous signs which You do, except God be with Him.
3  Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated from above, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.
4  Nicodemus said to Him, How is a man able to be generated, being old? He is not able to enter into his mother's womb a second time and be born?
5  Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated out of water and Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.
6  That having been generated out of the flesh is flesh, and that having been generated out of the Spirit is spirit.
7  Do not wonder because I said to you, You must be generated from above.
8  The Spirit breathes where He desires, and you hear His voice; but you do not know from where He comes, and where He goes; so is everyone having been generated from the Spirit.
9  Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How are these things able to occur?
10  Jesus answered and said to him, You are the teacher of Israel, and you do not know these things?
11  Truly, truly, I say to you, That which we know, we speak; and that which we have seen, we testify. And you do not receive our testimony.
12  If I tell you earthly things, and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
13  And no one has gone up into Heaven, except He having come down out of Heaven, the Son of Man who is in Heaven.
14  And even as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15  that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17  For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18  The one believing into Him is not condemned; but the one not believing has already been condemned, for he has not believed into the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19  And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness more than the Light, for their works were evil.
20  For everyone practicing wickedness hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, that his works may not be exposed.
21  But the one doing the truth comes to the Light, that his works may be revealed, that they exist, having been worked in God.
22  After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea. And He continued there with them and baptized.
23  And John was also baptizing in Aenon, near Salim, for many waters were there. And they came and were being baptized.
24  For John had not yet been thrown into the prison.
25  Then a question from John's disciples arose with the Jews about purification.
26  And they came to John and said to him, Teacher, the One who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have witnessed, behold, this One baptizes, and all are coming to Him.
27  John answered and said, A man is able to receive nothing unless it has been given to him from Heaven.
28  You yourselves witness to me that I said, I am not the Christ, but that having been sent, I am going before that One.
29  The one having the bride is the bridegroom. But the friend of the bridegroom, standing and hearing him, rejoices with joy because of the bridegroom's voice. Then this my joy has been fulfilled.
30  That One must increase, but I must decrease.
31  The One having come from above is above all. The one being of the earth is earthy, and speaks of the earth. The One coming out of Heaven is above all.
32  And what He has seen and heard, this He testifies, and no one receives His testimony.
33  The one receiving His testimony has sealed that God is true.
34  For the One whom God sent speaks the Words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.
35  The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.
36  The one believing into the Son has everlasting life; but the one disobeying the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
