CHAP. III. 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. Jesus tarries and baptises in Fudea. John the Baptist asserts the superior dignity of Jesus.

22 | After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judea ;* and there he tarried with them, and baptised.

24 For John was not yet cast into prison.

25 q 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 baptiseth, 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 into him.

CHAP. IV. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria.

5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, * which is called Sichar,t near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his Son Joseph.

6 Now Jacob's well was there, Jesus therefore being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the wel : and it was about the sixth hour.

7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

8 For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou being a Jew, askest drink of me which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep? from whence then hast thou that living water?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again :
