BESORAH YAHUCHANON (Gospel of John) 3
THERE was a man of the Parashiym, named Niqodiymon,[i] a ruler of the Yahudiym: 2 The same came to YAHUSHA by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from ELOHIYM: for no man can do these miracles that you do, except ELOHIYM be with him. 3 YAHUSHA answered and said unto him, Amein, Amein, I say unto you, Except a man be born from the beginning, he cannot see את eth-the Kingdom of YAHUAH. 4 Niqodiymon said 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 YAHUSHA answered, Amein, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the RUACH, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of YAHUAH. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the RUACH is ruach. 7 Marvel not that I said unto you, Ye must be born from the beginning. 8 The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell whence it comes, and whither it goes: so is everyone that is born of the RUACH. 9 Niqodiymon answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10 YAHUSHA answered and said unto him, Are you a master of Yisra’el, and know not these things? 11 Amein, Amein, I say unto you, We speak את eth 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 has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of Adam which is in heaven.
14 And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Adam be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For YAH so loved the world, that he gave his את eth-yachiyd, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For YAH sent not his את eth-yachiyd into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the yachiyd of YAHUAH. 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 everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in YAHUAH. 22 After these things came YAHUSHA and his Talmidiym into the land of Yahudah; and there he tarried with them, and immersed.
23 And Yahuchanon also was immersing in Ayin[ii] near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were immersed. 24 For Yahuchanon was not yet cast into prison.
25 Then there arose a question between some of Yahuchanon's Talmidiym and the Yahudiym about purifying. 26 And they came unto Yahuchanon, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with you beyond Yarden, to whom you bore witness, behold, the same immerses, and all men come to him. 27 Yahuchanon 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 HAMASHIACH, but that I am sent before him. 29 He that has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what he has seen and heard, that he testifies; and no man receives his testimony. 33 He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that YAHUAH is true. 34 For he whom YAHUAH has sent speaks the words of YAHUAH: for YAHUAH gives not the RUACH by measure unto him. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand. 36 He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of YAHUAH abides on him.
