For God So Loved the World

John 3

16 "For h God so loved i the world, 1 j that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not k perish but have eternal life. 17 For l God did not send his Son into the world m to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 n Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not o believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 p And this is the judgment: q the light has come into the world, and r people loved the darkness rather than the light because s their works were evil. 20 t For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, u lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever v does what is true w comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God."
