Ὁ ἄνωθεν ἐρχόμενος ἐπάνω πάντων ἐστίν·
ὁ ὢν ἐκ τῆς γῆς ἐκ τῆς γῆς ἐστιν
καὶ ἐκ τῆς γῆς λαλεῖ.
ὃ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐρχόμενος ἐπάνω πάντων ἐστιν·
ὁ ἑώρακεν καὶ ἤκουσεν τοῦτο μαρτυρεῖ,
καὶ τὴν μαρτυρίαν αὐτοῦ οὐδεὶς λαμβάνει.
ὁ λαβὼν αὐτοῦ τὴν μαρτυρίαν
ἐσφράγισεν ὅτι ὁ θεὸς ἀληθής ἐστιν.
ὃν γὰρ ἀπέστειλεν ὸ θεὸς
τὰ ῥήματα τοῦ θεοῦ λαλεῖ,
οὐ γὰρ ἐκ μέτρου δίδωσιν τὸ πνεῦμα.
ὁ πατὴρ ἀγαπᾷ τὸν υἱὸν
καὶ πάντα δέδωκεν ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ.
ὁ πιστεύων εἰς τὸν υἱὸν ἔχει ζωὴν αἰώνιον·
ὁ δὲ ἀπειθῶν τῷ υἱῷ οὐκ ὄψεται ζωήν,
ἀλλ’ ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θεοῦ μένει ἐπ’ αὐτόν.
John the Baptist said to his disciples:
‘He who comes from above is above all others;
he who is born of the earth is earthly himself
and speaks in an earthly way.
He who comes from heaven
bears witness to the things he has seen and heard,
even if his testimony is not accepted;
though all who do accept his testimony
are attesting the truthfulness of God,
since he whom God has sent
speaks God’s own words:
God gives him the Spirit without reserve.
The Father loves the Son
and has entrusted everything to him.
Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life,
but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life:
the anger of God stays on him.’
